website by ReefNet

MyGaelic was part of an initiative to create a strong brand for the future of the Scots Gaelic language. The site was built around an innovative system for having three levels of Gaelic available to visitors to the site, and all site supplied content was available in these three levels. This makes it suitable for everyone from fluent speakers through to absolute beginners. The application is built around a core of social networking tools, including groups, messaging, news, discussion and events. A comprehensive backend allows administration of all aspects of the site. The application was custom built from the ground up on a combination of CakePHP and Zend frameworks and used a test driven approach for much of the development ensuring that this large and powerful application was also robust and flexible from day one.
