The Community Center GmbH pursues the goals with newspoint.cc which they set with their "made by yourself"-beginning with schueler.cc. The users are animated not just to consume the current events but also to gather and discuss them. The combination of news portal and community with functions that are especially matched with the target group makes a special impulsive and exciting platform of newspoint.cc.
The business management of the LOTUM-Group confronted us with the first idea for newspoint.cc in November 2008. The concept for the portal was still developed in February 2009. That's why we could start with the development of the software short spell later. We finished our tasks after three months development time at the end of May 2009.
The basis is a PHP-framework that we developed. It's characterized by a slight template engine and it gives the necessary expansion space for individuality and creativity during the development. The tight connection with schueler.cc which was realized through a SOAP interface can be seen at a lot of places of the portal.
Moreover, we transfered the xHTML and CSS implementation of the whole design. The tight cooperation between us and the design partition of the LOTUM-Group made it possible that all elements could be almost identic copied from the outlines.
