    At Nexuspoint, we created a web solution based in ExpressionEngine that was targeted at used car dealers in the UK. I integrated the website with the car dealer's internal systems and pulled data from various third party APIs in order to make it easier for customers to choose their next car.

  • YouTube Caching System (Development)

    A Squid proxy server adapted with Python plugins for caching YouTube videos. We implemented this at Neotel in 2010 in response to a dramatic increase in YouTube traffic, to the point where our customers were unable to normally watch a video. It was an exciting project because we did reverse engineering on YouTube. After two months of work, we had a solution that saved 35% of the bandwidth we bought from our upstream providers.

    The solution ended up being a temporary one, as eventually we were approved by Google to host their CDN servers, but it was interesting to see that Google's CDN system worked very similarly to what we had designed.
