How we scale our kid-safe technology using Kubernetes

At SuperAwesome, we build technology that makes the internet safer for kids. Every month, we handle requests from hundreds of millions of kids located all around the world. These kids use their devices moderately in the morning, a little bit during the day, and a lot in the evening. As a result, we had to build highly scalable systems that would respond automatically to that demand.

Kids trend alert: Gacha, Dollify, and digital dolls

Are dolls going digital? PopJammers are going crazy about Gacha and Dollify.

PopJam, our safe-social platform for under 13s, has always been a place for kids to share their latest trends in a safe and creative community.

Through spikes of activity in November and December we saw several new trends appearing. In our Kids Trend Predictions for 2019 blog we mentioned that Gacha was a kid-predicted trend, particularly for YouTube content – and Gacha has truly arrived.
