Case study of StageClip
Web platform for virtual graduation ceremonies
United Kingdom flag Events
01 Challenge
StageClip is the United Kingdom-based company which makes it possible for universities and high schools from all around the world to create individualized video clips from graduation ceremonies – made available for students to share on social media. Due to the outbreak of the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, the company needed to accelerate a project of moving the real-life university ceremonies to the internet – the project now commonly known as ”virtual graduations.”

The idea was to create a web platform that allows the students to upload their short graduation speeches and send them through the web app. The Software House was chosen to cooperate with StageClip and build this new application. The biggest challenge was the very tight deadline – as the graduation ceremony season in the USA was to start 6 weeks earlier than the original plans. We needed to scale up the development team accordingly, making sure we meet the deadline and deliver the product on time.

02 Solution
The former version of the platform wasn’t ready for the anticipated inflow of thousands of new users. Thus, we developed a brand new application with React (frontend) and Node.js (backend) – to withstand the very high website traffic and a variety of operations performed at the same time (such as multiple files being uploaded by the students). It required us to scale the team up from 2 developers and 0,5 QA Engineer to 6 developers and 1,5 QA Engineers.

Our development team built all the necessary functionalities such as e-mail management and delivery system, the event configuration panel and the clips delivery system. On top of that, our DevOps team was responsible for adjusting the app to the existing cloud solutions which were used by the client and for further maintenance. Also, the Quality Assurance team performed a variety of stress tests to make sure the application won’t go down, even during the extreme overload and massive traffic on the server.

03 Effect
The project was delivered within the expected timeframe, meeting the tight deadline and all the technical objectives. The feedback we got from the client was very positive. The new application is being used by over 800 universities and thousands of students from all around the world. Thanks to the new solution, StageClip is now capable of providing its services to way more clients than ever before.
