HBC Tech AUG 29, 2013

If you rely on SEO, which really means that you rely on robots, you still want client-side app experiences. Handlebars.scala can help you get there. Handlebars.scala—also known around Gilt Tech as Scandlebars, and sometimes Scandalbars—is a Scala implementation of Handlebars: an extension to and superset of the Mustache templating language. It began as an attempt to learn Scala and to experiment with Scala’s Parser Combinators in order to get Handlebars.js...

The Day I Submitted 600 Gerrit Reviews

HBC Tech AUG 27, 2013

It’s well known that code review is an important tool for improving quality, and we use Gerrit extensively at Gilt for that purpose. But there are also some less obvious benefits of such tools. With a system composed of hundreds of small services, applications, database schemas, libraries, and toolsets–each hosted in its own Git repository–maintaining certain standards across all of them is essential, but challenging. We may want to ensure...

Meet a Gilt Technologist: Hernan Teano, Director of User Experience

HBC Tech AUG 20, 2013

How did you get to Gilt? I grew up in the Bay Area, and for the majority of my career I’ve worked in Silicon Valley. Upon reflection–because I don’t think it was a conscious or deliberate choice–my career has followed a thread: technology, fashion, and ecommerce. Three years ago, I moved from the Bay Area to NYC. In considering places where I might work, I focused on ecommerce because I...

I’ve been using GTD (Getting Things Done) for a while now (a long while :)) and for me it comes down to the question, “How do you pick the next, best, most valuable thing to work on?”–basically answering the question of how to make the best use of the time you have. Picking something from your list of...
