Like many IT projects Atlassian started using Magnolia CMS in a pilot to see if it would fulfill our needs. We took advantage of the built in translation and templating to deliver "iWAC" an internationalized version of our website in a matter of months.
Even after a successful pilot there were still concerns from our IT guys about scale. All of those concerns went away when we launched Angry Nerds, a site that went viral and brought us traffic that would have crippled our old infrastructure.
Suddenly it went from how well does Magnolia scale to how fast can we migrate. This pilot led to a year long redesign of our entire website including a complete rebrand which is all deployed on Magnolia CMS.
This talk will cover our path from pilot to production and all the fun stops in between.
