4 takeaways from HealthCare.gov launch
Call them glitches or failures, errors or slowdowns, but the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act health exchanges off to a bumpy start. James Turner, writing for O’Reilly Programming, put together a list of what developers can learn from the launch of HealthCare.gov:
Load testing: Because of the scale of the traffic, developers “need to really bang on the core functionality of the site, and tune the heck out of it.”
Validation logic: Keep the client code, server code, error messages and instructions in sync.
User experience: Test, test, test.
