Wall Street Journal Japan

I was hired in October 2009 to work on the launch of the new Wall Street Journal Japan website, to be launched in December. I worked on many issues of the site including the pay firewall, coupons, stocks, payment system and many other parts of the site. Over the next year I expanded the feature set of the site and also developed an API set for an iPhone/iPad application launched in September 2010. Working on this project has been very difficult at times dealing with the scope of code and still maintaining a scalable website, which could at times get overwhelmed with traffic. Finding bottlenecks while the site is crawling is a new area of expertise for me.
