Brewster is an address book that understands your relationships and helps you stay in touch. The engineering team behind it works on a variety of complex problems from search to big data to mobile apps. Merging your contacts across different sources and rendering them into something appealing that you can search quickly is interesting and challenging, and we’ll use this blog to discuss our work in more detail.
We’re deeply committed to open source, and launched several projects recently at an event in NYC, where we’re based. The event was a big success, and the best thing about it was the quality of discourse brought by the attendees. It was a great reminder of the vibrancy of the tech community in the city, and we’re looking forward to more events like this.
In the coming weeks, we’ll post more about the open source projects we launched and talk about our use of Cassandra, Elasticsearch, and the other tools that make Brewster possible. Coming very soon is a post about CardDAV, a product launched last week that is one of my favorites.
