Technical Analysis

This website required an scalable and solid CMS solution and e-commerce platform. The WordPress framework with Woocommerce plugin (with a single Paypal gateway for payments) were the chosen ones for this project. HTML5, CSS3, responsive frontend and dynamic effects in Javascript were part of the plan, as usual.

Other platforms and technologies were involved too, such as Mailchimp and Mandrill to handle the newsletters and automatic emails sent by the application, or Brightcove as the platform to host any video broadcasted in the web.
