Technical Challenges Overcome

A user usually has many contacts on networks like Linkedin. E.g. One may have 500+ connections. Pulling all these connections and tracking their activity and displaying on Kuhono in real-time without causing much delay to the end user was a major challenge. We implemented batch processes and crom jobs that updated the database and undated the search index in background so the frontend could just pull in the new data using an api.

Impact

Started operations and then merged with another product for mass scaling.
