Php

Our first love was PHP, a beautiful web programing language. We have developed many web applications with PHP, from marketing websites to complex ERPs, from APIs to CMSs, and everything in between. We can manage any technology built in PHP, but we are masters in Laravel and Symfony. Our developers are PHP certified and we have members of our staff that are leaders of the Laravel Community in Latin America.

Lobby Twits
The Challenge

This public application was completely executed by Dom & Tom including the design, UX and development. Jobsity provided the team with PHP developers and tech leads under a staff-augmentation model.

Lobby Twits needed a platform that will allow users to share their tweets via Twitter, using @LobbyTwits as a mention, as well as add posts via the platform. The shared information will be categorized and tagged using predetermined keywords, allowing users to easily sort and filter through the data. The users will be able to share, comment, and like the posted data. The verified platform contributors will gain clout score, increasing the credibility of their comments and posts.

The Solution

After some sprints of discovery, design and development, the team implemented a platform using PHP Laravel. Users were able to register for an account and create posts about politics and workings of the US government. Each post can be categorized into topics and users can follow topics or other users to get their posts on the homepage. Users are also able to agree, disagree, comment, share or report a post, and even tag another user in the system when they are creating a new post. Tweets that mention @lobbytwits are imported using the Twitter API.

Our Role

Together with Dom & Tom, our team was in charge of tech, which included, leading the project, and being part of all discovery meetings to define the cases of use and the client’s requirements for the application. Our team was also in charge of deciding which technology will be used for the project, and additionally developing the whole application.

Lobby Twits was definitely a challenging project. Understanding the political background of the application and researching all the possible options for the client’s requirements about real time features, Twitter API and the specific charts that were needed, was a crucial step for succeeding in the development of the project.
