SPEED – Chat System

ABOUT THE PROJECT

This is the chat platform I developed for the SPEED channel at FOX that was used on the event video streaming system and the Barrett Jackson Fantasy Bid game.  It includes an admin interface and allows users to easily integrate into the site by using a widget embed URL which renders out the necessary layout and content.  Chat was architected using Node.js as the front end and management system with MongoDB and Redis as databases.
