Website type: Daily News Website
Development language: php
Framework: Yii 2
This project consists in developing a custom news website that will empower daily news publishing.
I hate Content Management System (CMS).
They're inflexible, hard to use, and rarely meet all of an organization's needs. So rather than being fenced in by an off-the-shelf system, why not create your own?
The purpose of using a custom development approach rather than go with existing CMS such as joomla / wordpress is motivated by the fact that CMS usually have more details that needed, and as a result cannot always be fully optimized and simplified as needed. We do not want to have in the code things we do not need or depend on third party plugin that will require constant updates. Furthermore, at a high of traffic, CMS tent to generate more requests that saturate or cluster the server. We want to focus our software on fast page loading and less server resource usage as the website grow into a more visited website. Write a clean code with beautiful design, keeping things simple and allowing users to have a friendly experience. We expect over 10.000 daily visitors with a pick of 2.000 visitors simultaneously.
