123people is a real time people search service that looks into nearly every corner of the Web. Using our proprietary search algorithm, you can find comprehensive and centralised name related information consisting of images, videos, phone numbers, email addresses, social networking and Wikipedia profiles plus much more. All of this rich media content is pulled from an extensive list of international and regional relevant sources in over 11 countries in multiple languages. The 123people application is all Perl - built on Catalyst, DBIx::Class and plenty of magic.
The platform is built predominantly in Perl, and 3 teams of 20 application developers look after the core app from our London office. We actively use Moose, Catalyst and ActiveMQ and our current projects include plugging in new Search technologies (Xapian, Solr), writing a mobile API and switching to mongoDB to store our catalogue information.
