It is my great pleasure to announce that is running on Sitefinity starting from today. I hope that you will all enjoy the new website. It was a truly amazing experience to work on a site of such a scale and Sitefinity as a product has become much better thanks to some of the lessons we learned the hard way, while eating our own dog food. While we have learned a lot of things and improved, without any false modesty, I must say that Sitefinity did make the whole process a fun ride.

    Very cool! I know the team is exhausted from the effort but it really does look great and Sitefinity has become better as a result.

    Wow, site looks great! Would love to hear the team's stories on how they did it and the troubles they came across and overcame. Whitepaper?

    Hmmm...I wonder if I could get the Sitefinity team to agree to be interviewed for TelerikTV? :) would make an interesting case study for Sitefinity. Bob? Kalina? What say you?

    I would like to say congrats gain, I think the site is looking awesome, running soooo much quicker (did you change hosts too) and it is so much more usable. Also it is nice to know you got to see the use of Sitefinity from the point of view of someone implementing a site. So on with v4 looking forward to not having to merge my templates anymore lol

    Hi everyone, I’m so glad you like the new web site. We will definitely make a case study. Sean, We did not change hosting, the server is the same Intel Xeon 3.2 GHz, 8GB RAM, Windows Server 2003 R2. The server is hosting multiple sites including What makes the site faster is proper caching in both server and client side. After the release of SP2 in a few weeks, I will start blogging about advanced caching techniques. Also we have prepared some base classes for you to easily implement cache substitution controls and custom cache dependencies.

    Hi, site looks awesome guys. Will me interested to hear about the caching techniques Bob. Have a large intranet site running 3.2 sp2 and CPu averages about 85% during working hours - has there been some improvements in that area? Your new site belts along.
