Automating Your App Build Processes with Autobuilder

Sometime ago, I had written about Offline Avenues and making your SCORM Offline. That’s pretty powerful in itself. The benefits that are reaped from these offline technologies cannot be overstated.

A recent project that I worked on required us to store millions of records along with low memory and processor usage. The system worked well for the first one million records. After that, the system started taking a lot of time to insert records, create data files and search records within a database. To solve this problem, we decided to implement MongoDB Sharding.
