Airbnb Engineering Blog — First Post

By Nathan Blecharczyk

Welcome to the Airbnb engineering blog! Here we will be documenting some of the challenges that we tackle that may be useful and interesting to the broader community. These posts will come directly from our team members, and thus I hope to both give you direct access to them and give exposure to their individual contributions. In the process of doing so I hope you will get a better sense of who our team is, what engineering is like at Airbnb, and why we are all so excited about what we are working on.

Check out all of our open source projects over at and follow us on Twitter: @AirbnbEng + @AirbnbData
