Jarvus

Jarvus

Jarvus was a social networking app based on sharing photos, memes, and comments.

The backend stack of Jarvus was developed in Python and Django framework. The iOS app was developed using Xcode and Objective C. We implemented the photo filters using OpenGL ES, to take advantage of the high performance media rendering capability on modern smartphones.

We deployed the backend components on Amazon AWS, including EC2 cloud servers, RDS hosted MySQL database, S3 scalable storage, CloudWatch monitoring and alerting services.

Javus was acquired by TextPlus Inc. in 2012.
