Aol Homepage for Heroes

Working as a contract developer with Invoke Media, I had the pleasure of building a website for AOL's campaign "Homepage for Heroes", a website where people could show their support for the troops in Iraq.

The Homepage for Heroes site received close to 300,000 site visits within an hour and needed to be scaled and optimized appropriately to handle the load.
