In May Arts Council England and the BBC launched 'The Space', a joint project to make the best of the artistic and cultural activity taking place this summer available to everyone, on as many screens as possible.
In this session Mo McRoberts will discuss how The Space went from a good idea to a serious proposition, starting with WordPress on a collection of Linux machines firewalled to the hilt, then adding plugins to it to in order to generate a completely static version of the site which is then sent over to public-facing Apache web servers or a CDN, and build a set of templates to present the different kinds of digital art being served.
Come and be amazed.
