Thomas Multimedia is participating in the Mashup Australia competition which invites professionals from around Australia to create new and interesting web applications utilizing data made available by Federal and State Governments.
After only finding out about the competition a week before the deadline (3 weeks after the competition commenced) the pressure was on to create something unique and most importantly functional in a very short time frame on top of normal business.
Where to Live (www.WheretoLive.com.au) is a search engine that enables Australians to select the criteria that is most important to them in finding the perfect place to live.
In keeping things interesting and challenging, I opted to experiment with a layout that has no submit buttons and no page refreshes. This layout is reminiscent of Mac OSX which typically does not require pressing any form of “save” button when changing system / application settings.
Overall I am very pleased with the result and the learning experience, it is definitely a formidable starting point for a wider ranging site.
