The weekly status call with the client was going great. No new bugs were reported, and we were just wrapping things up when the client said, “Oh, one last thing—our content author reported that cinemagraphs aren’t working in the custom hero carousel. Do you guys have any ideas?”
The website launch wasn’t going so well. After months of development, the custom website our developers had built in Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) was ready to launch. But as the DNS swing took place and our AEM team waited for the DNS to flush on their workstations, the site that had loaded in milliseconds the day before was now taking 5+ seconds to load. A Google PageSpeed test confirmed the team’s fear—custom components built into the site were pulling large images uploaded by the content authors.
