After CSFB dropped off this volunteer project last year, Boyle Software stepped up to help develop the backend (in addition to the frontend) of the new web site for the Manhattan Island Foundation (MIF). MIF is a non-profit group that puts on a series of swims around the city to encourage the ongoing recovery of the city’s rivers and help underwrite the city’s Learn to Swim program.
The new web site http://www.nycswim.org/ launched this past Winter with online user profiles, allowing swimmers to view all of their past open water swim results in one place, upload photos, etc. Not only does the site track MIF events, it also ties into other open water events around the world. The new web site will continue to launch new features through out the Spring, including online registrations for the 2005 series of events around Manhattan.
In addition to the visible frontend enhancements, the new web site will also provide several backend administration improvements, including credit card payments, better content management, streamlined applicant approval functionality and better integration with race timers.
Technologies for this account include Microsoft’s IIS, ASP.NET, VB.NET, SQL Server, Windows 2000 Server, CSS, SSL, php, merchant account services and others.
