Letter of Reference | Mike Compton, CTO Canadian Black Book
When I arrived at Canadian Black Book as the new CTO one of my priorities was to come up-to-speed on all the projects that were underway and learn more about the third-party technology companies being leveraged. On the product development front, I learned that a company named Translucent Computing was under contract to provide their software development services in redeveloping the core mobile and web-based products.
The more I learned the more I realized that we had been fortunate to find a technology of their caliber. The architectures and technologies that I was brought in to implement were already being integrated and deployed by Translucent. Specifically, all the new products were built on a strong foundation using the AWS cloud, terraform for infrastructure deployment, Kubernetes for cluster monitoring and scaling, app containerization using Docker, and a strong dose of DevOps to ensure the pipeline was automated.
A lot of technology vendors claim to have expertise with these technologies, but those boasts aren’t always a reality. You need to hire great engineers that work well with clients and that, in a nutshell, is what Translucent Computing has brought to Canadian Black Book.
