Gathering and analysing lots of data can be a tough job, mainly at scale and with the Facebook API.
On the Back End, Novelys provided its knowledge of NoSQL databases (such as MongoDB and Redis), its knowledge of fetching data through the Facebook API and analysing lots of data (sometimes called Big Data) to help bootstrap the BestOf Photos project and have an acceptable build time for each photobook.
Each book is then rendered as PDF on the server and sent to the printing partner.
