Scaling for the Boston Marathon

The Boston Marathon is one of the busiest days of the year for Dave Ross, an engineer manager at the WordPress VIP Featured Partner agency 10up, was presented with two challenges: 1) scale for the site’s busiest day of the year 2) support the growing mobile audience for live streaming.

To accomplish this task successfully, Ross and his team emphasized peer code reviews and performance in PHP, Javascript and CSS. They used the Brightcove HTML5 Video Player along with the FitVids.JS library to tackle the growing mobile audience, which allows videos to resize and fit inside the container on the page.
