Post Pottermore chief technical officer states Chamber of Secrets will open "this summer"

Julian Thomas, Pottermore's chief technical officer, recently commented on J.K. Rowling's interactive website and how the team learned to accommodate for the high traffic the website sought, using Microsoft's Azure as a cloud provider, in a new report in The Seattle Times.

Thomas commented on how traffic on the site would spike once the second installment of the series, Chamber of Secrets, would open to the public, and noted that it would be "sometime this summer."

Do note that this summer ranges from anywhere from the end of June to all the way at the end of September, so it could be weeks to months away. We will have an actual opening date once Pottermore reveals it. The Pottermore Insider blog already announced that it is currently working on artwork for chapters of the book's moments on the site.

Thomas anticipates more such peaks occurring when new content is added: Such as when content for the second book in the series, "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets," launches. Thomas did not give a specific date for that but said it would be sometime this summer. will also be translated into more languages, including "some Far Eastern languages that will be announced shortly," he said, and Pottermore will also appear on more mobile devices in all sorts of forms.

"This summer"
Well, it should be out by Christmas. If we're lucky...

Don't get me wrong, I love Pottermore, but every time something is announced, it always seems to be an earliest possible date, or there's some kind of catch, like they'll only let a few people see it in the summer and the rest won't be able to. I just kinda wish that could change. If it means it's better because it comes out later, fine, but saying it could be in early June really gets my hopes up, but I still have huge doubts about it after how long everything else took.

You'd have thought that they'd finish CoS sooner than this. The gap between PS and CoS is growing all the time.

What I always loved on Potters apart from well, loving the whole idea and yeah, was prefessionality and as much as design and creativity and such are rather amazing it sure needs some inovation in directing. Especially when it comes to timetables.

But looking foward to it without any doubts.

Didn't I read somewhere that they would have it ready in a few weeks...a few weeks ago? Don't want to complain because Jo doesn't even have to do this, and we are lucky that Pottermore even exists, but I am just ready!
