Helping cat videos go viral with Grails, Groovy, ReactJS, and Spring/Hibernate

Viral videos and software development: Grails, Groovy, ReactJS, and Spring/Hibernate

Admit it, we all love viral videos. Silly videos of cute animals, collections of epic fails, inspirational stuff — there’s always something that resonates with us. After all, videos go viral for reason, right?

Actually, in the brave new world of today, there are multimillion-dollar businesses invested into videos of this sort. So whenever you see a video of a squirrel drinking a milkshake — or some dudes attempting a triple frontflip while slacklining — there might a crew of media brainiacs behind it. And these people do a ton of work to discover, curate and promote videos that have, what they call it, viral potential. As a result, we get to procrastinate at work while looking at videos of this sort:

Now, our big news for today is that we’ve started working with a media business that revolves around viral videos. Our new client is an international entertainment company with a monthly audience of more that 2.5 billion people.

This company has already published over 50 million videos, and they’re planning to double this figure in the near future. Obviously, reaching that sort of scale would be impossible without the assistance of skillful software development experts. And that’s exactly where AgileEngine comes into play.

Our client’s tech stack: Grails, Groovy, ReactJS, and Spring/Hibernate

As far as technical details go, our developers will be busy helping our client make their digital properties more scalable and user-friendly. Our guys will face a challenge of perfecting a complex system that processes petabytes of user-generated content.

To accomplish this goal, our Lead Grails developer will assemble a team of 4 code ninjas well-versed in Grails, Groovy, ReactJS, and Spring/Hibernate. We’re sure these guys will do a terrific job:)
