Ninja Badge Exchange with CloudFoundry and Grails

We are in the process of adding a new gamification service to CloudSpokes using Badgeville. We recently completed the Force.com portion of the service with our Gamification SFDC Toolkit challenge but that left the integration part. When user events are generated in Force.com (registering for a challenge, winning money, posting a comment, etc.) they are dumped into a queue for processing. We needed to build a polling engine to retrieve these records from our gamification platform and send them to Badgeville.

Wcheung built a really slick app hosted on Cloud Foundry using Grails and Pusher. If you haven't seen some of wcheung's videos before you have to take a peek. Not only are they technically awesome to watch but his delivery skills are very entertaining. Wcheung demos are legendary inside CloudSpokes!

Here's a the demo of the application itself and another one of the code walkthrough

This was a great submission by wcheung and we've already rolled his code into production and it's pumping gamification  data into Badgeville on a regular basis.
