Hi there, my name is Yan Cui and welcome to my blog!
I’m a senior server side developer in the social gaming division (codename iwi) of GameSys where my focus is on building the infrastructure as well as developing the server side logic for our games on Facebook.
Most of our server code is written in C# with some specific components being written in F#. All of our code is hosted in Amazon EC2 and we heavily utilize the many services that Amazon has to offer to achieve the level of scalability we require to support the rapid growth of our games!
I’m a passionate coder and I take great pride in writing clean, well structured code and I love the scalability challenges that my job offers on a day-to-day basis.
When I’m not working on our games, I enjoy spending time researching and learning other technologies and I’m a big fan of functional programming, cloud computing and NoSQL databases.
