Our CLIENT – A trend setter with the REQUIREMENTS

Our client with wants to bring a revolution in the gizmos and gadgets industry.

The website is developed to provide the latest news, trends, and reviews of newly launched and future technologies related to gadgets & gizmos plus with an upcoming e-commerce web portal.

It is a fully functional website with a sophisticated but refreshing look providing you the most updated information about technology, which always keeps you ahead in your social circle.

Our client wanted a hybrid platform of a news site and eCommerce site with an appealing look that has the essence and sophistication of a news site, but it should also retain the interest of the user with its fresh and attractive appearance. Following were the requirements for this pioneering site:

  • Interesting and informative user interface.
  • Addition of other platforms, e.g., eCommerce, social networking sites (Facebook, Twitter).
  • An updated database of technology and gadgets.
  • Efficient writing and editing team for web content.


Challenges – Conquered with confidence

And like other projects, while accomplishing the above requirements and make this website a reality, we came across many challenges.

Few of them were:

  1. To come up with a sleek design that inherits the news site look with the flexibility to add many different platforms such as e-commerce sites, social networking sites, etc. in the long term.
  2. Content management and optimization of the website were difficult due to enormous articles and images.
  3. Handling ever-increasing data and its maintenance in the database and ensuring the unhindered flow of information from website to backend and vice-versa.
  4. Automatic resizing of images so that they can fit in galleries and slide shows.
  5. Development of an efficient backend for authors and editors without compromising on the authenticity of news and articles.


Complexities and solutions – no fun in doing simple things

All the challenges were tackled by appropriate solutions, but there were technical complexities like responsive design, reducing the site loading time and handling the duplicity of the news, etc.

These complexities were efficiently handled with the following solutions:

  1. Responsive design: We chose a pre-defined design for this and customized it according to the requirements.
  2. Site load time: Due to lots of images, sliders, and galleries, site load time was unexceptionally high, Drupal Memcache and Drupal standard coding were applied to keep load time under 6 sec.
  3. Removing Duplicity of news: As many different authors are adding story into the site, we need to keep checking the duplicity issues. Hence we made an application that removes all those duplicate news and gives the website users only genuine news.


The new trend –

The outcome is an attractive website providing the latest, hot, and popular news of newly launched technology and future technology by popular gadgets brands.

This information can be shared by the user by using social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Besides, users can get all news and information related to their brand of his choice with a simple click from the home page only.

It’s a complete package for the sophisticated and experienced user as well as for the novice and fun-loving younger generation. The most beautiful, unique, and interesting part of this website is its innovative name Nerdeky which is derived by bumping ‘Nerd’ and ‘Geeky’ with each other.

The client accepted this web portal with great applauds.
