Dinheiro Vivo debuted live blogging platform at Web Summit

Published on 2016-11-23

The Dinheiro Vivo website sports a new feature that enables its users to track news by the minute, receiving updated immediately and automatically. It’s called live blog, and was debuted in the latest edition of Web Summit, held earlier this month in Lisbon, Portugal.

According to the Netscope ranking, Dinheiro Vivo is the leading Portuguese digital source of economic information. Its website has a high requirement level for performance and availability. Last October, it had more than 13 million page views.

The live blogging features resulted from the development of a plugin that is integrated with the digital economic newspaper’s website, based on the WordPress platform.

The implemented solution involved a deep analysis of requirements, in order to guarantee the speed that Dinheiro Vivo’s readers are accustomed to, and provide the performance necessary to support prolonged periods of peak access. Additionally, this project involved an elaborate DevOps project, allowing for integration with the website’s cluster architecture.

The project’s technical coordinator says that “the plugin resorts to asynchronous communication mechanisms to perform real time updates on the user’s browsers, without having to reload the page”. He adds that “this process is transparent for the user, considerably improving the website’s usability and user experience.”
