How To Use Parallel Programming

If you’re unfamiliar with the concept of parallel programming, it probably sounds like something out of Star Trek or a creepy Black Mirror episode (the machines were watching us all along). However, in the real world, parallel programming is something you can use to save time and quickly accomplish business goals. In this post, I’ll be covering the basics of parallel programming and its pros and cons—no creepy machines necessary.

How we built a Lucene-inspired parser in Go

At Mailgun we have numerous systems generating a ton of events every hour of the day. It’s a number so large that it’s impossible for a team of people to sort through ElasticSearch results and expect consistent results or for the team to maintain their sanity.

Sending Email Using The Mailgun PHP API

It’s been a while since the Mailgun PHP SDK came around, and we’ve seen lots of changes: new functionalities, new integrations built on top, new API endpoints…yet the core of PHP is the same.

You have a project, and you want to apply machine learning to it. You start simple: add one feature, collect data, create a model.
