Campus Books: Re-develop Website
 
CampusBooks.com is one of the most highly trafficked textbook comparison shopping sites in the United States. A visitor of CampusBooks.com can search for any book title, author or ISBN and get the best price on that book, new or used accross a network of 25 or more top online booksellers, sifting through approximately 50 online bookseller feeds and APIs to return the best deal, new or used, sorted by price.

In late 2005 CampusBooks became HandBrewed's first major client. Our task for CampusBooks at the time was to completely redesign and re-develop the campusbooks.com website and migrate all of the data from the original Microsoft ASP/MSSQL server to a completely custom built LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) solution. HandBrewed was able to port the site and migrate the data to the new platform this without ever taking campusbooks.com off line.

Coca Cola: Music Competition Website
 
In this project HandBrewed partnered with Los Angeles based Magnet Solutions, Inc to design, develop and deploy a music contest website for Coca Cola Europe, built from the ground up. Musicians and bands could upload their tracks and fans would 'like' and/or vote on their favorite. Once the contest ended, the artists or bands that received most of the votes would be moved to the next teir of voting until a final vote was cast by top music industry experts. Prizes for the winners varied.

With an extremely tight deadline looming, HandBrewed provided the wireframes and functional requirements for the site administration as well as built and deployed the API for all aspects of this multilingual website to operate. In partnership with Magnet Solutions Inc, HandBrewed designed, developed, deployed and helped maintain the site for two years, while contests lasted.

ABC News Home Page: Twitter Social Widget for Barack Obama, SOTU
 
We were there when Twitter's fail wale was a near daily occurance! During those fun times HandBrewed partnered with Mike Grishaver & Thingfo to create a social mashup widget that was included on the home page of ABC News during Barack Obama's first State of the Union address in 2009. The widget allowed keyword searches to be saved, and mashed up keyword search results of social feeds from Twitter, Youtube, Facebook, Foursquare and other social networks. Tweets and other social feeds could also be moderated before they went live, to remove any offensive language.
