== Vitto - Consulting on Cloud, Management and Software Architeture ==
Vitto started as a funny story. A friend in common asked my help for the
Vitto guys, saying that they were under attack on the night before. As they
were not under attack, we agreed that I would take a look into it in the
next day morning.
The next morning I took one hour revising the major points. They looked
good, with minor adjustments to be made, with just one observation that they
should be using less EC2 machines for the load they had - but this was pure
guts, as I didn't profile their application yet.
In that same day at night they called me again. They had hundreds of
machines and system was still out, when they used to run with something like
20-30 machines. I was leaving my daily job and they picked me up right there
to their office. I called my wife telling to not wait me for dinner. I came
home passed midnight. But we managed to solve the issues temporarily.
I helped them a more couple of times before we agreed on a regular basis
consulting service. And since back then I'm involved with their products.
We did a lot of things there. From profiling code, to implement tests, CI/CD
pipelines, improved management process and development practices, to
I must confess this is the best job I have. Once they have thousands of
clients there are no easy issues and the delivered value is always high.
