Posted by Sigurd on 25 June 2009

Join us in Washington DC! From 7 to 9pm on Thursday, 16th July, we're presenting an interactive case study of the 2008 U.S. Democratic National Convention website.

Homepage of demconvention.comPowered by SilverStripe, the website delivered content in both English and Spanish, had real-time videos of Barack Obama and other key speakers in HD quality, and received more than 2.6 billion hits over a 96 hour period.

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.

The event is free and is hosted by the Washington DC Web Content Mavens. You even get a free drink and appetizers!
