Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Teams are small feature teams, each fully equipped to work on any feature top to bottom (front-end to back end). A typical team is 1 Scrum Master, 1 Tech Lead, 3-4 Front End developers, 1 back end developer, 2-3 QA's.
The product for this client is a sports betting platform, consisting of mobile/ desktop websites, iOS and Android applications, middle ware services and back office. 24/7 support is provided. Each of the parts must perform and scale during high peaks of load and when the system usage is moderate.
Delivering such a complex service to the end users assumes usage of a wide variety of technologies and tools, from Akamai to multiple services on AWS to CI/CD and testing automation tools.
We have long been using micro-services on the project, but we do not use the 'micro-services' term, rather simply services. Each middle ware component is isolated into a small stateless service which is containerized and deployed to AWS using EC3, Docker, Application Load Balancer, etc. This approach allows us to scale the platform depending on load and keep the costs of the running of the platform low.
Migration to Angular 6 has just been completed. It is still too early to think about Angular 7. The team is focused on getting all of the benefits out of the Angular 6 framework in terms of performance and server-side rendering, and at the same time not jeopardizing end users' features developed specifically for them.
Coral jobs are 100% dedicated to this client. Within the structure, average allocation of time is as follows:
