History

EchaloASuerte has been around since 2010, it was just a simple page to allow several users to take random decisions when they were not in the locations. It was an old and ugly PHP/HTML/mysql website.

Middle of 2012 we learnt about AJAX and JQuery. What better place to test my knowledge than EchaloASuerte?. The website became more dynamic and easier to use.

End of 2014 the traffic on the web site started to grow over 13.000 visits a month from around the globe, which made us realize that the site deserved a rewrite. Two friends joined the project, David and Pedro. We started to full rewrite the site and host it directly in a VPS. We had two objectives, learn new stuff and enhance the page. We use/used: jquery, django, github, jenkins, travis, kibana, mongodb, ansible, unix, apache, bootstrap, cloudflare, websockets, socketio and nodejs.

In brief, EchaloASuerte is a web site that gave us the change to learn and put in practice new technologies/tools whilst users an found answer to a need that no other page offers (shared draws).
