From Demo to Production at the WSJ
The Wall Street Journal this month launched Talk2020, an app that collects transcripts of speeches and other election-related material and makes it all easily searchable. The app’s journey began on my work Macbook, when I coded up a demo Django/PostgreSQL Talk2020 app during bus rides home from the office after writing about rally speeches. It was fantastic watching that demo take on new life in the hands of colleagues.
You can learn more about how Talk2020 went from demo to production via this Medium post, which members of the WSJ Digital Experiences and Strategy team wrote to recap the process. Amazon Web Services has written about the project as well.
