Connr

  1. 1. Hello World
  2. 2. The “social web” • Register, confirm email, and fill up thirty five fields. • Decorate profile with party pictures. • “Friend” everyone you know, and some you don’t. • It’s all about building connections. • It’s worked well for most of us.
  3. 3. Conn’r It’s not about making connections. It’s about connecting.
  4. 4. The Concept • Our application enables two randomly selected users to chat with each other. • It’s not about finding new friends or dates, it’s about having a conversation. • No registration or filling up profiles, just click a button and start talking. • Instant gratification.
  5. 5. Target Market • Almost everyone. • It satisfies the most basic human need to connect – the same reason why the social web is so big. • Individuals who want to simply talk to someone new without the hassles of registration, “friends” and profiles, etc.
  6. 6. A bigger goal • We will allow users to flag unwanted elements (spam, offensive, abusive), and log those conversations. • Powerful AI algorithms will analyze these logs, and pre-emptively flag such users. • This functionality will be opened as a public API, like a new generation of “spam filters”.
  7. 7. Nuts and Bolts • A powerful real time communication framework ensuring near zero latency. • Technology – WebServer – Django + FastCGI – Frontend – Adobe Flex™ – Backend – C++ – Custom Message Queue server. • Extremely scalable – both horizontally and vertically.
  8. 8. But... Why don’t we just use LISP?
  9. 9. Timeline • Backend almost finished, work on frontend continues. • Alpha launch mid April. • Beta over summer. • Long term ambitions: – Log processing & Machine learning – Analytics and research aspects
