Glass pulled content from all over the web to show you new releases and deals from your local stores.
As the CTO of glass and the only developer on our 4 person team I wrote all the code.
It wrote a few dozen entries a second to the database while serving up html pages for browsers and json for the constantly up to date iOS application. Glass made heavy use of front end caching, geolocation, asynchronous background tasks and remote API calls.
Glass had thousands of users and was growing steadily. And then we ran out of money. http://www.shopglass.com is offline
