Congress of Military History - the challenge was to create a website for the congress event organized by CIM and The Bulgarian Commission of Military History.
Main line in the design is connected the with the congress main theme “Technology and Warfare” and the symbol of the wooden artillery of our country is the logo of the congress. I created the hills and mountain tops and placed The Cherry Tree Gun in such places as they have historical meaning for our country under Ottomans in 1876.
I stared a prototype using Ruby, Sinatra, SASS and HAML. This was my first commercial Ruby project or at least it was on it’s was to be. This was about to be small scale website and after finishing the second language I started looking for good place for deploy. Unfortunately I did not find any in Bulgarian space supporting all GEMS that I need and easily installing new ones. For one night the project was re-written in php.
Before the Christmas 2011 the site was released in English and French and the client is really happy - you can check the feedback on the right.
