Migrating Weather.com Onto Drupal
The Weather Channel (TWC) has one of the most highly visited web sites in the world (www.weather.com). And, it’s certainly among the largest Drupal sites.
But in terms of web experience for its visitors, the forecast was not all clear skies. With over 2 million locations, each with unique forecasts, page load times were less than ideal and were lacking the features their visitors desired. TWC also realised that there were too many legacy platforms to support and too many roadblocks when it came to updating site content.
Sign up for the webinar to learn how Mediacurrent, TWC and Acquia worked together to address the site’s complex requirements and efficiently tackle engineering challenges. You’ll get insight into some innovations that were created within the Drupal framework, including:
- How a streamlined workflow enables content to be written once and re-used across properties
- How they improved page load times across the site
- A framework that allows independent teams to create flexible widgets that can be presented across multiple devices
- Mobile app support
