Chat Simply

Designed around the idea of making group chat simple. Built off open standards and projects like XMPP, Backbone, Rails, Node.js, etc. My role was building a BOSH connection manager for clients and provide push notifications for iOS devices. I also built a node.js app that worked with external APIs to provide webhook intergrations into chat rooms. Built the OSX desktop app (web wrapper) and assisted on the iOS app.


Social Networking app for friend making. I built the backend using Rails, ElasticSearch & Go. The app stack I deployed to our VPS uses Docker, Nginx, Unicorn, ElasticSearch, Postgres, Go and WebSockets.
