Code Forward: Meet the Developers Behind President Obama’s 2012 Re-Election

January 03, 2013 - by joyentlindsay

In January, our friends at New Relic are sponsoring Code Forward – a three-city tour with the development team behind President Obama's successful re-election campaign. The Obama for America team redefined the importance of technology in national elections. You may have seen some of their groundbreaking efforts covered in Ars Technica, Mashable and more.

The OFA team will talk about how they built their team, their DevOps practices, and how they built a sophisticated cloud-based infrastructure that used big data to maximize their campaign’s success, volunteer engagement and voter outreach.

The Code for America tour kicks off in New York City on January 8th, then moves to San Francisco on January 10th and Chicago on January 14th.
