    Overview   Process  

    [The work is in the museum]

    Task: to create a website for a citizen journalism agency.

    Ridus is both a mass medium with editorial staff and a platform for citizen journalism. The content for the website is provided by people from around the world. Anyone can write an article that can get to the front page.

    The website is managed using Imprimatur I (Java) proprietory technology

    The Ridus website receives a huge volume of information from various sources. To manage it, an internal editorial task management and monitoring system was created. The system is based on Imprimatur proprietory technology and is integrated in the website. The architecture of the solution allows to balance the load across multiple servers.
