About the Project:

  • an Alexa skills service. This is a light service written as a JavaScript lambda and an Express/Node server application backed by DynamoDB.
  • a document viewing and annotation service. This is made up of a couple services, a Node app and a conversion service (knight rider) written in Java. Backed by S3 and DynamoDB. It also uses SQS and has a small amount of Scala.
  • LTI applications using Ruby and Rails. They are deployed on our platform infrastructure and leverage Postgres, ElastiCache, S3, etc.
