Taco Bell's next-generation E-commerce website (https://ta.co). The infrastructure design incorporated high-availability for multiple EC2 servers across several availability zones, an auto-scaling launch configuration and a load-balancer (ELB) to distribute traffic. Hosted entirely in the (AWS) cloud, the website serves over 3 million visitors each month and has successfully scaled out to 48+ servers during Super Bowl and other high-profile events (before scaling back in to normal capacity). The site included a Sitecore CMS for managing content on all of Taco Bell's menu items, homepage feed content and promotional pages. It also allows site administrators to post HTML content to the platform easily withour requiring a full application deployment.
So much for never visiting a fast food site...

VW.com Mobile 2.0 Web Platform
Next generation mobile siteVW.com Mobile 2.0 Web PlatformEach dev project should have a seamless workflow where code changes can be introduced, tested and promoted rapidly - without failure.
Automating the software delivery process using continuous integration and delivery pipelines (CI/CD) greatly enhances the team's ability to track and manage feature sets during a sprint. The ideal configuration is where code changes are automatically deployed on approval of pull request (git). The goal being to allow changes to migrate through environments separate from the underlying CMS architecture and content.
