Instagram integration and large screen animations, in Vegas!
Our long standing client Show+Tell, based in NYC, came up with an amazing concept that got us really excited. The project brief was to create an web based admin system to moderate selfies taken by shoppers and posted on Instagram with the hashtag #fashionshowlvfame.
The photos could be rejected or approved and queued up for use in an animation and shown on one of three large format advertising screens at the entrance to the mall.
The animation is shown every few minutes with advertisements for the mall’s shops in between each selfie spotlight showing.
How we built it
We also utlised horizontal scalability using Node.js and MongoDB to make the app highly scalable and distributed across datacenters. This means that under load the app can easily scale on demand. It also means we can host the app in multiple datacenters so that if a single datacenter had a power outage it won’t affect the uptime of the application.
