Hey all, just wanted to give an update on some of the things we are currently working on. In addition to supporting all the upcoming and current event sales, we have been doing a lot to improve the system.
One of the major steps forward we have made, is starting to use a CDN for static content, to greatly improve the speed of the site. In addition we have been working hard to optimize the database, and have some extremely large changes coming to the check-out process, which will greatly improve the speed, and the overall user experience.
Additionally, all sales from here on out, we plan to run through our load-balanced set-up. This will high reduce the chance of our servers becoming overworked by a burst of traffic (typically the moment a sale goes live.)
There are so many more improvements that we are making as we hammer out Version 2 of our platform. Thank you all so much for taking this journey with us, and helping us improve our services! We couldn’t be on this journey without the support of this great community!
