Its On TheGrid is a wordpress / custom php + salesforce website that I did not build, but maintain. The 'front' end is WordPress running off AWS, and the 'backend' is a Salesforce application. My job is to essentially make changes to the WordPress CMS and keep the EC2 instance up and running. This website is a good example of poor planning/architecture as it leveraged far too many different technologies to achieve a very basic goal. The idea behind this website is fairly unique however, basically providing comprehensive 'power rankings' for all of Hollywood. There is even Ruby on Rails floating around in this architecture, handling syncing between superfluous databases, which can attribute ultimately to the slow nature of this site. This is one of those sites that I wish i had the time to rebuild, because the idea actually has promise.
