Virily is an application.

I won’t chase my tail today about the reality of sites like Virily. I will say when views go down, and revenue goes down. I talked the other day about the reality of Virily being built on a WordPress frame or a WordPress template. I also talked about the application having three if not more, distinct, and unique components.

  • The front end, or what shares the Virily with your browser
  • Process or logic layer, where you can posts, templates or comments and interact with any of those on the site
  • Backend this is the overall storage of the site and login information for users.
  •  It should be noted that all posts that are available online are stored by Virily. It does appear that some older posts are no longer available.

Each of these layers is housed in a set of servers and storage arrays. If this is an application built in a cloud provider than each layer is a VM or Virtual Machine. If this is physical hardware, then based on how infrequently it goes down (it hasn’t been down the past 13 days, just not at full capacity.)

The code that provides us with the templates and the submission process is included in the process layer and is presented in the web layer of the application. In both cases, the process layer and the front end call upon the backend for information. Is this a valid user is one call that the front end makes to the backend.

I am telling everyone this because Virily is a pretty complex application. It isn’t something that you make in an afternoon in your first programming class. If it were, there were 1000 Virilys in production today. It takes time, effort and ultimately passion!

I always try to remember the Reddit rule, REMEMBER THE HUMAN! 

Simply put it means what you say to a person should be the same regardless of online or in person.
