Think Yachts came to us for an entirely bespoke and custom website project. They had an existing website which wasn’t looking particularly good, but it was lacking a few essential features to enable easy admin updates, especially for images, and customisable searches. Our approach to the project was 2 fold. We created the back-end of the website first, and then the front end website.
The back-end, or admin area, was created entirely in Microsoft Silverlight with the emphasis on ease of use. Using silverlight enabled us to produce a fast, lightweight, desktop installable application. The application is secured using .NET memberships and roles, and the database is driven by Microsoft SQL Server.
At the front end, we created the website in .NET with C#. We also utilised some GUI components by Telerik. Specifically, ASP.NET AJAX Controls.
The site is also heavily search engine optimised to achieve the best possible search results, and utilises search engine friendly URL’s (SEFU) where possible.
Below is a video presentation showing the admin system we created in Silverlight:
