Boosted system speed
Rebuilt core platform
Our engineers undertook a security and performance audit of the StockTwits core platform prior to launch and formed a development team to implement the findings. Initial project plan was to optimize the existing platform, but after more accurate assessment we ended up building almost the entire front-end, optimizing the deployment strategy and improving the overall security of this social media platform designed for investors, traders and entrepreneurs.
We closely cooperated with the client’s internal team, participated in daily meetings and helped with migration and improvements of already existing code.
We identified multiple performance bottlenecks and removed them – improving the system speed significantly. Additionally, we identified several potential security issues that we addressed before the launch.
Also, we significantly improved the experience and security for over 1.3 million investors, traders and entrepreneurs sharing investment ideas and financial information on the StockTwits social media platform. Server-side rendering was improved roughly 5 times. There were also some server-side processing improvements which on a long run saves resources.
