A few words with Max from Flux...

Could you tell us more about your project?
Netlify
I love the idea of static sites, it just makes so much sense. We do have high-ish (well for us) traffic during elections, and we are going to need to transition into a multilingual site soon (though not sure how to go about this yet), and we’re looking into ways to allow many contributors to work on the site at once (though it’s still html+markdown and git currently, which isn’t as accessible as we’d like).
Max Kaye Co-Founder, Flux
Why did you choose Netlify?
Netlify
Netlify seemed like a really awesome service, it did exactly what we needed really easily, and was an early adopter with services like LetsEncrypt which sits really well with me (warm fuzzies ❤️). I feel good supporting netlify for a whole lot of reasons: great service, market diversity, compatible philosophy, forward thinking, ready for us and you to grow, community engagement, contributing to open source. Love it.
Max Kaye Co-Founder, Flux
What is your favorite Netlify feature?
Netlify
Deep git integration is great. Not just plain old CD/CI but the branch previews are amazing. That said it might soon change to other features (like the CMS - going to go explore that very soon)

Ed van der Elsken

The Scrollytelling team had the job of taking an amazing Dutch photographer’s life and transforming it into a beautiful, image-centric website. Commissioned by the Amsterdam Museum of Modern Art, it was important to convey his importance and amazing contributions to photography in the 20th century. 

The Scrollytelling team decided that for this project, the JAMstack was the way to go. They checked out a variety of free options but various missing features meant ugly workarounds or inferior technology. They determined Netlify was the best option to deliver this visually touching website. See below for an interview with the team’s CTO below.
