About Sam Parsons

📖 Summary

I am head of the Architecture team at Palringo Ltd, a popular Mobile Instant Messaging platform. I am responsible for the server and client side architectural roadmap. At Palringo I designed and developed a service oriented Java architecture to deliver various services that power the Palringo system. Features of the architecture include a non-disruptive A/B deployment system, RabbitMQ for asynchronous messaging, Java producers and consumers using the Spring framework with some modules handling up to 1k messages per second. I have recruited and trained Java developers to build on this architecture which now handles most of the server side logic including registration, payments, real-time image processing and game integration. My previous experience includes working with high availability Telecommunications systems using C++ and Unix. Specialties: Spring, Java EE 6, C++, Python, NodeJs. MySql, Oracle and MongoDb databases.
