Webinar Recording: Bluwr.com - Using Blumycellium automation tools with ArangoDB backend

Bluwr.com is a text-based social publication platform that aims at efficiently servicing millions of users. Here we introduce how we are using ArangoDB as the unique database for the project and we will look at Blumycellium, a lightweight library we developed for async communication between processes that uses ArangoDB as a back end. Blumycellium is one of our main automation tools for Bluwr and will be open-sourced from the get-go.
