// Technologies used (使用されている技術)

UGC Esports was built using a modern and scalable tech stack designed for high-performance gaming environments. The frontend was developed with React and Redux, ensuring a responsive and dynamic user interface capable of real-time updates. ExpressJS was employed for the backend, creating a RESTful API for efficient data communication. Real-time features, crucial for live tournament experiences, were implemented using Socket.io. Redis was utilized for caching and improving data retrieval speeds, essential for handling large numbers of concurrent users during tournaments. The entire system was containerized using Docker for consistent deployment and scaling. Linode was chosen as the cloud infrastructure partner, providing reliable and scalable hosting solutions. Payment integrations included both PayPal and MercadoPago, catering to a diverse user base.
