Five bananas. Six bananas. SEVEN BANANAS! - Count-von-Count, The real-time counting database!

DevconTLV January Conference, Thursday, January 30, 2014, 12:00

Counting millions of events and showing real-time numbers and leaderboards is a big challenge in sites with high scalability.

On, 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!
