Netclub with Tomas Kapalin

Thursday, 23 April 2009

The monthly event Netclub hosted Tomas Kapalin on 8th of April 2009. The meeting place was the same as last time – Café Louvre in Prague.

Tomas Kapalin is a former Sales department director at Seznam.cz. After the cooperation with Seznam.cz broke, he entered the world of investors. He is strategic partner at Libimseti.cz and other web companies. Nowadays he invests in “emerging” markets – Romania – in a flight ticket order service. You can find the transcripts of the meeting on Lupa.cz and Netclub blog.

This event was fresh, full with info and entertaining. Mr. Kapalin is a great speaker with good information about the market. Interesting are his opinions on the new markets – the new European countries like Romania (Ukraine was mentioned by one of the attendees). The economy is booming and there seems to be opportunities for the same e-business projects like in Czech Republic five years backwards.

Dideua.cz

Thursday, 9 April 2009

We are proud to host and help with web site of African dance group Dideua. This group has been established in late 2008 by Elaine Christina and group of enthusiastic people located in Kdyne. The web site features blog, static pages and photo gallery. 

We used the WordPress blog system as a base, added the Czech translation provided by Czech WordPress portal. The installation was pretty straight forwarding, but lacks of Czech templates. That was not a problem after all as we agreed to create own templates with graphics. Basic Czech template for the WordPress can be found here.

Photo gallery was enabled using NextGen Gallery plug-in by Alex Rabe. The plug-in lacks Czech translation so we had to make the translations and integrate them.

Graphics were delivered by Katka Kadanikova. The conversion from design editor to the templates was very easy and very little programming experience is required. We had some trouble to place the absolute pictures of Elaine left, at the bottom and the placement of eagle.
