Gluu IO
Connect your favorite apps with powerful APIs

Gluu IO was a SaaS product that enabled users to connect their favorite software with data processing APIs.

In three simple steps non-technical users could connect

- Mailchimp with FullContact API to know more about their subscribers
- Twitter Search with Text Analysis API to find out what the sentiment is about their brand
- Dropbox folder with OCR API to turn scans into text

I was the architect and lead developer of the app. My main task was to facilitate maximum simplification of app workflow for the user.

Project duration: 9 months

Technologies used: MongoDB, NodeJS, Express.JS, JQuery, Twitter Bootstrap.

Unique features: an algorithm whose task was to limit the amount of requests per given time. It was essential in tackling throttling policies of API vendors.
