It started with a request to make the interim results of the parliamentary elections available in a form suitable for a mobile application. At that time, the Statistical Office provided the media with the election results only in a CSV file via the FTP protocol - not the most suitable format for a mobile application. There were only a few months left until the parliamentary elections, so the decision was made quickly: as part of a pilot project, we will make the election results available in a modern, standard JSON format via the REST API. Great, but we need a solution that can cover a high load during election night and is safe enough to withstand potential attacks - and it won't be cheap. Only that we would deploy it in the cloud! And it was decided. Within a few weeks, the Statistical Office of the Slovak Republic was able to deploy a solution that makes the results of the 2020 elections available in JSON Stat format as a REST API.
