BTR Direct: DVD eCommerce site

In April 2009 I began working on a new eCommerce site for BTR Direct, working freelance for White Hat Media.

This site does a lot of very clever things behinds the scenes which required me to write some custom Drupal modules. Each night we transfer an XML archive containing all the new and updated content for the site. We import and update around 3,000 products in this XML feed.

Then we run the Apache Solr search indexer on all this new content.

Each year the Methodist Church of New Zealand hold a huge annual conference. The logistics of organising this event puts a large strain on the admin team each year. Whilst I was living in New Zealand I was called in to help them automate the registration with a web based form.
