Last night, Tendenci Programming Manager John-Michael Oswalt was on the 5 PM CW39 NewsFix newscast commenting on the government’s maintenance of the Healtcare.gov website – and what it takes to make changes to a website of that scale while it’s active.
“With a website of this scale, with all the different pieces that are talking to each other, there’s lots of little things that can go wrong and slow things down.”
“When people know the road’s going to be out, they plan for an alternate route. And they plan around that. So this is going to give them some time and relieve hopefully some of the pressure of the public trying to get into that site and really hammering them with traffic.”
