If you use Elastic Beanstalk to run and manage your web apps, at some point you’ll want to setup some scheduled tasks, or cronjobs. Today’s blog post aims to take you through the best way of achieving this, whether you’re running in single instance mode, or load balancing.
I’m proud to announce the release of the most demanded feature we’ve ever had on the Rotaready development list: shift swaps! Now available to everyone.
We spent time with some of our customers to understand how shift swaps work in practice before diving head-first into mock-ups, sketches, doodles and code. This article takes a look at the things we learned and how we went about integrating swaps with Rotaready.
Welcome to Shift Up A Gear!
(We hope you’re enjoying the wordplay as much as we are…)
We’ll be posting here regularly with the latest news from Rotaready Towers. From feature announcements, to opinion on current affairs, to code snippets, we’ll be commenting, boasting and ranting about it all.
You’ll also find featured articles on Rotaready success stories, how we leverage the latest technology to solve some of the biggest workforce management problems, and a behind-the-scenes look at what makes our automated rota building algorithm so damn clever.
Until next time…
