A microsite for the 2012 elections. Worked with one other developer. Built the backbone framework using require and underscore. We built a variety of custom interactives using D3js and some apis (Twitter and Youtube). It was recognized by AdWeek as one of the most innovative election sites out there.
I setup the Amazon Web Service setup with a loadbalancer, multiple EC2s, and Cloudfront S3. Site traffic required us to scale to 40 servers during election night.
Project released: 2012My responsibilities included technology leadership and frontend development.
