PurePlay contracts Calcey for software development services

PurePlay, a leading online gaming company headquartered in San Francisco and with data centers in Utah, has engaged Calcey Technologies to provide software development services on a long-term basis. PurePlay delivers gamers a complete Virtual Currency gambling experience, gifting prizes to winners via a subscription-based revenue model. Calcey will help to re-engineer and extend PurePlay’s core platform for Poker and Slot Games. PurePlay’s online games have over seven million subscribers and the underlying technology platform is Java based.

PurePlay’s CTO visited Calcey’s offshore development center in Colombo last week, to assist in the setup of the development environment and to train the engineering team in the product’s features and underlying code. He is a Silicon Valley veteran having worked for several leading technology firms in the past, like go2net and Dini Group.

The PurePlay platform is built using a fusion of technologies including a Spring enterprise application framework, a JSP/Tapestry presentation layer, a Hivemind service layer and an Oracle database. PurePlay has adopted Scrum as their agile development methodology. Calcey will deploy a startup team of five engineers and commence the first Sprint of work for PurePlay this week.
