Remote control your web clients

After Work Seminar



Playtech Sports presents this talk for you who are interested in using existing web technologies - like redis, node, web sockets and spring boot - in new, strange ways. How about turning your web clients into servers? Connect to a web client and send commands to them over web sockets?

Is this even useful? We don’t know yet, but we see a number of potential use cases:

• Control the web client during system tests or integration tests – an alternative to Selenium

• As a developer, inspecting internal state of your application.

• At a call center, retrieving logs and other information from a web client to help out identifying a problem.

We will talk about the tools used to implement this feature, as well as why we think it is important to spend time on experimenting and innovating.


Albert Mojir is a system architect at Playtech Sports in Malmö. He is a passionate Javascript developer with many years of experience in both frontend and backend development. Before he started at Playtech Sports, former Mobenga, he worked at Microsoft with Dynamix AX and later seven years as a consultant with assignments at Sony Mobile and Malmö Aviation. He enjoys saling, running and traveling. One day he will cross the Atlantic sea in a sailing yacht!

Johan Frick is a system architect at Playtech Sports in Malmö. A Java developer for the last 11 years, but enjoys some Javascript hacking every now and then. Spring came into his life 6 years ago and ever since his absolute passion at work is creating magic with the framework. He truly believes that Spring Boot one day will save the world. If Skåne hade bigger mountains, meters of snow in the winter and Florida-like weather conditions in the summer he would spend half the year golfing in shorts, and the other half snowboarding off pist.
