A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.
– John Lennon
The initial soft launch validated the concept to get dreamers to create, plan, share and achieve their dreams. BUCKiTDREAM quickly grew to 250k users, creating almost two million dreams.
The beta version was built on a simple technology stack consisting of MongoDB, Ruby on Rails, Parse with native iOS and Andorid apps. With the sudden growth of BUCKiTDREAM's user base, the beta platform was reaching performance and capacity limits.
The next step was to scale the platform from the beta version to an enterprise-grade solution to accommodate millions more users and dreams.
Migrating data and services always poses risks and challenges and would need to be planned and tested thoroughly. All data from the beta platform would need to be to be migrated across to the new platform, while the launch should support an uninterrupted service for the tens-of-thousands of active users.
Utilising various services within the Google Cloud Platform, we were able to design the architecture in a modular and serverless manner that provides a solid base for scale and simplifies manitenance and deployment.
Cognitive content tagging
With over two million dreams already created on the platform, we needed a way to organise, classify and link dreams in a manner that would enable simple discovery by users.
To solve this challenge, our engineers built a custom machine learning algorithm with natural language processing that would apply a sentiment analysis to each dream. This would automatically classify and tag each dream according to location, event, and experience for effortless discoverability of user-generated content.
React Native for mobile app
As part of the platform redevelopment, we were tasked to develop a new mobile application for BUCKiTDREAM. React Native Framework was a great solution as it would support our speed-to-market while supporting both major mobile platforms (Android & iOS).
This decision allowed us to move quickly and ship the new BUCKiTDREAM mobile application in about six weeks.
Included in the new build was support for Intercom for engaging with users via marketing automation through means of email and push notifications. We also included Firebase tools for app analytics, monitoring and messaging.
BUCKiTDREAM engaged Hashi Kaar and his Plycode team in early 2017.
Our core need was to find a worldclass local engineering team that could architect and engineer BUCKiTDREAM Future Intention Data Platform.
Hashi and his team have exceeded our expectations and demonstrated total alignment and passion.
Even better the BUCKiTDREAM platform has been tested by worlds best brands, media and merchants.
A seamless technology partnership that continues today and I can highly recommend to local ventures who are thinking global.
