Lead Java Developer

SharksCraft • NMS, Spigot, BungeeCord, MySQL, MongoDB, Redis, C#

Planning and developing an agile framework to support around 1,000 players concurrently whilst maintaining efficiency and less bandwidth usage whenever possible. An Application was created to monitor the infrastructure to notice us of any possible dedicated boxes or individual servers that were having some issues so we could deal with the little potential issues before they turned into bigger issues. Along with all this, the infrastructure needed to support a sudden influx of players when other advertisers were brought on board so I was tasked with modifying the current infrastructure to request new servers and assign them to a gamemode so that it'd take a maximum of 10 minutes to support the new influx.
