The web application architecture was rewritten from scratch

New architecture for an already existing product

  • Having an existing platform, the clients reached out to us with the request to update it and optimize its performance. The product architecture was rewritten from scratch.

Self-sufficient platforms targeted different markets

  • Originally the platform was targeted at the US market. After some time, Asian high schoolers needed a separate platform to connect with US-based mentors.
  • By cloning the platform and using a different API and database, we set up a totally self-sufficient new product.

Decrease of server load and performance optimization

  • Having a large user base, the important task was to make the product reliable and stable. It was clear that we should decrease server load and optimize product performance so as to maintain a large user base at a high level.
  • Our initial Ansible-based deployment was evolved into a continuous integration system. Additionally involving Fabric and Jenkins, it was boosted with API autotests.
