Washington DC-based Tim Chambers from Dewey Digital will explain why SilverStripe was chosen for the project, and answer questions about the website from the customer side. Sigurd will explain how our development team worked on the project, and fill in all the technical details around successfully scaling to such a large surge of traffic.
