Here’s what you’ll learn:


  • An Introduction

    Approaching a platform transition requires proper planning and execution on top of a serious technical architecture. In this webinar, we’ll discuss the migration of NYSenate.gov from three unique perspectives: the lead developer, the project manager and the platform provider.

  • In-Depth Technical Notes

    Using Drush for a complex migration. Setting up SOLR search. Load testing. Finding edge cases. Scripting the migration.

  • Future of Collaborative Development

    We’ll also cover future plans to open source the site code for use by other legislative bodies to promote transparency in government.
