Anything web, api, or data engineering related.

 

I have an idea to build an API that provides game data to build other applications on top of. For example an api that returns stat/number data for powers and enhancements, so that we can build a modern and up to date version of a hero builder/planner.

 

thanks,

K

One portion that caught my eye in post was the mention of IPS forum software.  Repeat Offenders has used Invision Power Software (currently: Invision Community) for 13 years (2006) and since I'm the resident admin, I've been behind the curtain flipping the switches.

 

While I may not have the time to volunteer fully, I would be happy to provide a test forum for the team to fully check out the options and flexibility of the software. This would provide a much longer testing ground than a demo version from Invision.

I'm not a developer but believe I can help build a good highly available and resilient virtual infrastructure using AWS to lower operating costs of hosting and managing CoH Homecoming - wasn't certain where else to post my offer of assistance

What you would be interested in working on:
I'd like to design a fault tolerate, durable, resilient, automatically scalable, AWS infrastructure for COH to run on , as I've been a major fan from way back in the day and what to give back 🙂

I am extremely interested in learning what the COH Homecoming team is currently using for  infrastructure specs from OVH Hosting, as well as what is currently being used to run CoH so I can use this info; more info such as IOPS needed for DBs and avg concurrent users connected would also be helpful.

Applicable skills (see below)

* Decade+  full stack web developer with heavy front end experience. 100 ton gorilla with core web technology. There's not much involving web tech I haven't at least touched on at some point.
* It's been a while but I'd be comfortable with PHP. I've also worked with .NET, Python, Rails, Java, etc. I of course love Node.js - Django would be my second choice. I don't hate PHP.
* I'm no DB admin but I'm perfectly comfortable reading/writing SQL queries
* Tools like... yes
* Git? Yes
* Web designer? No. I can do anything except make it pretty. Aping existing design themes is no problem though. Also have a fair bit of web tech animation experience.


Availability & time zone
Nights/weekends
US Central - Chicago



Frameworks and/or web software you have experience with

Exposure to most of them. I avoid Angular. Currently working with Ember, which is 'meh.

 


What you would be interested in working on.
Challenging UI problems are my favorite. But I'm excited to see that you've been working on some web-apps that tie directly to the game. Service-based stuff is always fun to work with. Also happy to mentor, troubleshoot, build helpful stuff for other devs, etc. If JS or CSS are giving anybody headaches, I'm always happy to help out with stuff like that.
