The Technical Chamber of Thrace is the most prominent organization of engineers and technical professionals in northern Greece. It measures several hundreds of members and offers a wide variety of services. To better communicate its work it needed a modern portal based on Free & Open Source technologies to avoid the vendor lock in from which it had bad experiences from its previous platform.
For this case, we designed and developed the website keeping in mind it should be user friendly both for visitors and publishers. In terms of content it has press releases, newsletters, technical magazine issues, feeds from local newspapers plus a system to post ads regarding jobs and opportunities. Every publication goes through a workflow engine. Search is made easier using a live search feature and visitors are allowed to comment on some posts through a moderation step.
