From today until 30 September the Swiss Public Radio and TV SRF will convert the Bundesplatz (our parliament square) into a big multimedia studio. The exciting campaign is broadcasting the election highlights for the next of term of parliament and promises a good load of political controversy. We are very proud to be SRF's development partner for the campaign's web presence: bundesplatz.srf.ch.
The development requirements were threefold: Design the website to look fresh independent of the viewport, integrate social media, and make sure the system (power!-)performs under high traffic load: We chose Drupal 7 (what else) as content management framework. Enjoy
Bine aţi venit! As of this very day Vasile Chindris is joining our team in Zurich. This is great news since Vasi is not just an intelligent computer scientist but a battle-hardened coder. He has proven his practical talents with several of our client projects working from our development partner epoint in Timisoara, Romania; probably the longest assessment we've done so far. We are excited to have you here for good Vasi - the Raclette and Fondue season is just about to start!
This blog post is totally overdue but frankly DrupalCon London has just flown by.
During the day the team split up to attend a variety of different session reaching from "This Code Stinks!" over "Doing Drupal Security Right" to "Why Royal Mail and UK Government Are Shifting towards Open Source and Drupal" to get updated on the latest trends in the community.
In the evening we participated in the Curry Night which was a blast and took place in downtown London. This meant we could do some sightseeing on our way to the restaurant. Lucky us, we passed the Tower Gate Bridge and the Tower of London while doing so.
More from our activities at DrupalCon should follow soon.
As most of our dear readers already know, Amazee Labs develops based on the unbeatable framework Drupal.
Today was the official start of DrupalCon London, well Croydon actually, where 1,750 Drupalistas are currently gathering for the conference taking place twice a year. Amazee Labs is proud to be a sponsor and on Sunday evening we could sneak a peek of the location and were delighted to discover our brand in pole position:
Six Amazees are currently over to contribute to the event and learn about the next big things to come. And if you happen to be one of our clients, don't worry, we're not just learning. We're using all the spare time (mornings, breaks and nights) for some intense mini-sprints:
Another result of our first early morning session is our new Amazee Lab & Drupal page extension, hope you like it!
You'll hear more from our conference week in London. All work done now. We're off to the official curry night and pub crawl...
DrupalCon London is coming up and we're organising a Swiss Drupal Meetup during the conference week.
Meet us on Tuesday, 23 August 2011 starting 6.30 pm at the TreeHouse in Croydon just a few blocks from the conference location. The first round of drinks are on Amazee Labs! Please RSVP here with a comment or in the Drupal user group to sign up so we can reserve enough space.
All non-Swissies welcome too, of course!
We're looking forward to meeting you all Drupalistas!
UPDATE 23rd August: We're NOT having the meetup at Treehouse. We're all going to the Curry Night! Infos here
A power-loss in Amazon's datacenter has wiped our community platform amazee.com of its servers; temporarily at least (Amazon 3:01 PM PDT: "... We understand at this point that a lighting strike hit a transformer from a utility provider to one of our Availability Zones in Dublin, sparking an explosion and fire..."). They are still working on the recovery (latest status: http://status.aws.amazon.com/ in the Europe Tab), however, your data's safely backed. Just a question of time.
Amazee Labs is happy to announce the launch of immogoms.ch for the eponymous Immogoms AG. Immogoms is a real estate company from Goms, the wonderful district in the Swiss canton of Wallis. Their previous website was old (but elegant), and developed 10 years ago - no database, lots of handwork. It was time for a new generation:
The new platform facilitates two markets: Rental objects and objects for sale. It was implemented based on Drupal 6. For the handling of the reservations we have used the really cool Agreservations module. Since it did not match all our requirements, we adapted it with a timeframe-restriction functionality. Of course it has been recontributed to the Drupal community.
As for now the payment process is still being done via classic oldschool invoicing. However, the payment functionalities will be extended in the near future so that the transactions can be processed via the site directly. On the other side, the owners of the flats/houses will be able to manage their objects directly. Even the cleaning lady will get her/his account.
Not much more to say. Get inspired, book Goms. It's never been easier to find the right accomodation. And before you leave for holiday, let us know what you think. Thank you.
Talented Mr. Jobs and his team have produced another record breaking performance. The most interesting fact is visualized by asymco: iOS products (iPhone, iPad) make up 71% of sales and even more of their profits. It's just amazing. Now we could ask what will happen when Android & Co. get their act together. I find this one more interesting: What will our new gadget and their next cashcow be? iCloud, Ultramobile, ... let us know where you expect their innovation to head to.
Here's some short infos:
When: 2, 3 & 4 September 2011
What: A Drupal camp about commerce — for modern businesses & techies
Where: Lucerne School of Engineering and Architecture, 6048 Horw
Amazee Labs is involved in the implementation of the Website (completely done with Drupal COD and in multilanguage) and in the overall organization of the conference. And of course we will give some Talks!
So if you are a Swiss Drupalista or interested in building your next commerce site with Drupal, this Conference is absolutely the right thing for you!
