Project: eCommerce – Compass IT Almost Done

compass-it

I have a project with Compass IT Solutions Co., Ltd. which offered to me by my ex-boss at Hartt Media. It is an eCommerce site that use the Joomla! and Virtuemart. Actually it is almost done now, only a design part left and then we can adjust the layout and some configuration on payment and shipping module.

The only difficult part is Joomla component which is MVC. I never know MVC before and I have to learn to do it with Joomla document. So this took longer than I expected. This component is for
– Custom the homepage hilight banner and text.
– Custom category and sub category header

So I have to add a module for homepage and change Virtuemart template to display the banner and text.

The component has SWFupload to upload images for any category they want and also rich text editor for homepage. Once the project done, I will add more images.

A Demo of Work That Customer Didn’t Pick

time-report-small

I usually get the job here in Thailand without doing a demo. I hate doing it, but I need to do it sometimes when I got new potential customer. I also hate when I need to compete with the other programmer too. I most likely to get job from some source I know well so that I don’t have to do the demo and stuff since they know my ability so well already.

Here is the demo I did a while ago called OAS. I mean I am graceful to work on it, but they didn’t pick me. No problem, but here I bring it to show what my demo look like. The time report is quite useful because I make an auto complete ajax box, a time slot that can enter and see the result and save it easily which look like an excel sheet.

The Demo I am talking about is right here: Time Report

Prototype – OAS

I am now working on a prototype for OAS project (Parch Consulting) after proposed them for sometime now. Seems that they did not hurry because I had to finish another project from my previous client, but they was waiting to see my demo.

I just back to do it again today and promised them to present them on next week,, maybe Tuesday. This project is about office work. I had to do the prototype on Time sheet and Overtime Work Report which are their important point to do.

Went To Khon Kaen For Friend’s Wedding

I went to Khon Kaen on last Friday night and come back here on Monday night. It was a fun trip. I met a lot of old friends again and feel like old days we were together. Of course, some are good and some are bad. Many of them changed their bad habit in a better way and most of them are kinda mature since 3 – 4 of them are already married and have kids.

The bus cost is 384 Baht for each trip so…. Not too bad, but next time I will fly with Air Asia which is only 440 Baht round trip to Udorn Thani and I will take a bus to Khon Kaen. Faster and cheaper. hehe

I got there about 3 am. and no wonder some of my friends still were in the local pub. haha. I called them and have them pick me from the bus station and brought me to my mother’s house. (couldn’t stay up late any more)

The next day was so hot like 40 c. , but I don’t really know,, that day in evening, I havegone with the other friends for drinks till late night. The hard rain poured all night long so we drunk a bit and go back to stay at hotel.

The next day after is traditional wedding in the morning and party night in evening. I spent most of afternoon help them to decorated the party. LOL Come out so wonderful and that night get drunk again. haha. poor me.

After come back to Bangkok, I need to see customer and finish some work. This is just a fun story from the weekend that I could share here. 😉

In one day last week, I talked to my friend that I’d love to help the country from this bad economic. I believe all Thais would like to do. The foreigner might not know well about our country situation, but the foreigners in Thailand still have their fun time traveling.

So here is what I can do, I put the ads on homepage of my highest traffic website, KrpMag, which have about 1000 readers daily. The ads link to the page Experience Thailand. If you are Thai or if you love Thailand, I ask you to do the same to help our country. Do whatever to bring Tourism back to normal or better. For our beloved country. 😉
