Old Aerial Photos sells Prints and Scans of Aerial Photography in the UK

Problem: Maintenance and Upgrades

BlueSky International Ltd required a Web Developer to take over the Old Aerial Photo website

Solutions: Rapid Learning of the Site Operation and Code to Ensure Continuity

The OAP website uses a very large database containing records of over 400,000 photos. The site was code for Windows Server using Coldfusion.

A quick project involved understanding the system operation from both a customer and a back office Admin perspective. Modifications were made to the database content and to the code to add another product option.

Outcome: Precise Understanding of Requirements Leading to a 2 day Completion of the Project

The actual code of a website is only half the story. Much of a Web Developers work includes quickly understanding what a client requires and what users expect and need. This was successfully achieved with only 2 days on the clock (over a period of several weeks).
