Press Release Portal
Summary: My role as a bespoke codeigniter developer provided me with the opportunity to be involved in a new and exciting way for PR and marketing companies to create rich, social media based press releases to replace traditional text based ones. The system is a widget based one, similar to netvibes or igoogle. The account holder can create brands, releases and then open up a press release editing area where in realtime you can add, edit and delete themed widgets allowing for content such as twitter, Facebook, youtube, image galleries and much more.
Technical: The system was built in Codeigniter using a MySQL database. The entire project was handled in Basecamp with Git version control. Ongoing task management made use of Pivotal Tracker, allowing the client to track and sign-off features.
The system is in beta at the moment, once released I will post a link.
