Live streaming technology
Live streaming video is a challenge in itself. Our challenge was to develop a platform similar to Zoom, but within a reasonable budget. This requires tactical innovation by discussing, analyzing, and designing before beginning the programming process.
Avoiding tunnel vision is a critical component here, as burning through a large budget and reaching a dead end is a real possibility. The client came to us with OpenVidu technology, which unfortunately didn't scale the way that was required. We started working with LiveKit and together we built a business plan before we started the transition to make sure it made monetary sense. Currently, the platform is capable of handling hundreds of thousands of concurrent connections.
We created an editor similar to those used by professionals in the filming industry. We have created a user interface that is complex but intuitive at the same time. First the user inserts blocks of specific exercises and music into the timeline. Then when the trainer starts the lesson, the app shows him and the participants the exercises in real time. The technology used on the frontend is Angular, and calls AWS lambda serverless functions.
Stardio's business model is based on transaction fees between instructors and members. We use Stripe to process payments between Stardio and instructors and between members. The backend uses the AWS Amplify framework, DynamoDB, TypeScript on Node.js. We have extensive experience with team collaboration on serverless development. The team consists of 4 developers including a TL, 1 QA and a Product Manager. Want to get involved? Just jump in a lesson today -> Stardio.com
