Development

The T101 Development Team writes software that allows hundreds of thousands of gay men to find, connect and interact with each other.

We are the biggest network of our kind with over 600,000 registered members, and at peak times of the day we have around 50,000 concurrent members online, which brings its own unique set of challenges. Our products support Web, iOS and Android platforms, and are built on a resilient and scalable back-end that is in constant use round the clock.

We are a small, friendly team that is supportive, highly productive, and quality and results-oriented. We’re proud of being truly passionate about technology and the software development process.  We follow an Agile/SCRUM-based iterative development process and short delivery iterations.

We are dedicated to keeping up with the latest technologies, practices, patterns and tools related to software development. We take time out to share our knowledge with one another and improve both our skills and our development environment.

We also subscribe to Pluralsight’s library of online technology training courses.

Some of the tools and technologies we’re currently using are: Objective C, Java,  ASP.NET MVC 4/5 (C#), ReSharper, GitHub, SQL Server, MySQL, MongoDB, Memcached, RESTful web services, jQuery, AngularJS, Less, Responsive web design and AWS cloud services and hosting. We have powerful development machines with SSD hard drives and dual monitors.
