A media-driven trip record - BeenThere
Created by Michael Hanekom.
I'm a Developer in Johannesburg, South Africa. I work at Vertopia. Previously, I've worked at Private Property, Barloworld Logistics, Digicore.
A portal that will store a history of your trips around the world. It will allow the attachment of your own media or community contributed media to various POI's (points-of-interest). It will allow you to write about each of the media items you attach. Trips can be replayed by friends and loved ones. There are many verticals to this type of portal and can range from advertising, to tourism, to safety, to government and so on. There are plans for mobile apps or alternatively integrating with something like PocketBook.com.
I want it to be a free portal for people to build memories for themselves and their loved ones. I also want it to be a platform for people to get great deals and offers from travel and tourism agencies that match their planned trip route. It should also contribute to the safety of people who travel by alerting them to high risk areas and practises.
Design and development of the platform from beginning to end. That would include graphics, HTML5, CSS3 and Jquery. In addition, I would like to build it as a scalable AWS EC2 deploy using PHP/MySQL. Another important area of skill contribution would be via PHP SLIM framework for the API design to partner sites and mobile devices.
