Google Cloud Messaging using PHP

Google Cloud Messaging

Using PHP to send a message to a Google Cloud Messaging registered device is quite simple. In this example we'll be using curl to create a message request to send to the Google GCM server.

The code shown in this example is just going to demonstrate how to send a message to a registered device ID.

The CMS is a powerful, rebrandable CMS for any XML driven website or web application. It's a flash/php based CMS and provides a very simple and clean interface especially good for gallery and image based websites.

Zoos Victoria Conservation Mashups

Our latest project for Zoos Victoria has gone live. Part of the FUSE (Find, Use, Share, Educate) portal that supports kids to explore and solve complex issues facing our society through the use of digital technology. Designed for school aged children to create a conservation based mashup video from a series of resources from the FUSE portal.

Conservation Mashups Gallery

The site was released yesterday by the Victorian Education Minister, Hon. Bronwyn Pike MP.

Unsustainable palm oil production in SE Asia is pushing orang-utans to extinction through loss of habitat. At the current rate of clearing the Orang-utan could be extinct within ten years. Kids can access a collection of video clips and images and use an online tool to ‘mash up' their own video to support the Zoo's Don't Palm us Off campaign. They can share videos in an online gallery.

Check out one of the user's mashups below:

The site was all built in AS3 using Flash Builder and integrated with a custom build of our content management system (a Flex and PHP-based XMLRPC server). The CMS provided a simple interface for the administrator to preview and approve the submitted mashups. It also included an AIR application build for desktop use, and a standalone version of the mashup player (as used above to show the mashup).

Website for sale

We developed a website for a customer but unfortunate circumstances meant it was never deployed. So we're offering it up cheap.

It's a full xml driven photo gallery website, designed for a photographer. We even linked it into a drupal CMS install with some custom php, to pull the images from the galleries allowing the site to be easily updated by the client.

We are really disappointed this site never went live, so if you have any interest in putting a photo based website up this may be for you.

And if you're interested in the website drop us an email and we'll setup a preview of the site for you.
