What was the scope of their involvement?
We asked them to develop a backbone of our media platform. We developed theoretical principles of a dynamic peer-to-peer network to develop content in our format. We needed Dextechnology to implement the actual network infrastructure, the backend, and the set of APIs to use in development.
The main development is done in C# and MonoDevelop. We’re moving toward Docker containers to make the system easily deployable across cloud services like Amazon Web Services, Azure Cloud, and Google Cloud.
The apps are used to showcase our media delivery platform. One app reaches Media Player. It provides access to audio and video content on our platform. Users can interact with the content. They can watch video on TV while listening to music on the phone and it will be in complete sync. The mobile applications are for iOS and Android. They provided us with a couple of developers that are fluent in developing native iOS applications. We have one app that was developed natively. Some of the apps are developed in Mono, which will make them easily adaptable to Android or iOS.
What is the team composition?
When I have a task to be done, they tell me how soon they can complete it and they assign it to their team. If the task requires more manpower, they get more people from their side.
How did you come to work with Dextechnology?
They were referred to us by a friend of mine.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve spent $200,000–$999,999.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in May 2013 and the work is ongoing.
