Counting millions of events and showing real-time numbers and leaderboards is a big challenge in sites with high scalability.
On FTBpro.com, the largest fan-generated football media brand globally, we developed a counting database based on Nginx, Redis and Lua scripting language (!), leveraging them to create a live and scalable counting solution.
We enjoyed the project so much that we open sourced it. Come and hear about our journey and product!
