This was a fairly challenging project. We helped conceptualize and build Kanga's core technologies. We built the backend services layer in Ruby on Rails. We created the iOS app on top of these services and nailed down the architecture before jumping into Android. We worked for 2 weeks with our design partners Allies on creating a seelmess and powerful user experience. My favorite part about this project was getting enterprise architecture together on Amazon Web Services. AWS makes it really easy to deploy a highly scalable application. We load tested the sites performance with a cool little Scala library called Gatling. It was pretty cool to stress the application and watch as AWS scaled the application up and down to meet the demand.
