About FineTune Learning

We are working on a variety of projects from componentizing and enhancing front end reactjs to optimize user experience and reusability of components.  We are constantly collecting data on users to help recommend better resources for their learning.  We build interesting but simple dashboards that may help teachers become more data driven.  We work on behavioral experiments via randomized control trial through our software. Our backend is mostly python/sqlalchemy and supports graphql and diverse set of databases depending on the application.  Continuous integration and continuous deployment are next in our pipeline. We are facing challenges in scalability and automation which we plan to tackle in 2018 and refactor code to increase the software performance and support 5 million users.  We work with our design team to make this experience engaging for effective learning.
