Long Term Web Development RelationshipAfter many successful web development jobs with Leo Burnett, Stirring Interactive got a good, clean and straight reputation. Proudly say, we have been selected to handle the web development job of Dubai International Film Festival over more than two years.

The web development services we provided for two years was another proof of our professional monitoring and maintenance.

CMS Based Web DevelpmentCMS Based Web Development

For DIFF web development, there were a lot of special needs which required special skills from our side. DIFF asked for an advanced and user friendly CMS, a smooth CMS to help them accomplish their online updates quickly with minimum technical knowledge. The CMS was required to host and maintain multiple websites with the ability to share content between them. We built out our web development solution on ExpressionEngin content management system. Our choice for ExpressionEngin was due to its well known features in performance, the high security measures and the multiple websites support it has.

Simplified Data MigrationSimplified Data Migration

When DIFF decided to renew their website, they wanted to keep all data published on the old website for previous edition of the festival. In order to migrate data to the new CMS platform, Stirring Interactive fixed this through its experience in web development with minimum amount of errors. We had to dig into the old website database and create back-end scripts that syndicate the data in XML formats. Then, on the other side we built another recipient script on new CMS platform to read the old data migrated and put it in the right place in new database. We managed to accomplish this in a record time considering the amount of text and visual content we migrated.

More and more challenges faced within the web development mission. DIFF wanted to use a third party customized solution in order to keep a centralized database for films. Our team of developers built a customized CMS module with user friendly interface in which website administrators can initiate films database import process on demand. Through time distributed update and cron job, we made the huge film database update happened without affecting the website performance specially during the festival days when the website traffic peak.

Working for DIFF was more than just the web development. It was a total discover of the unlimited skills our web developers have. For over 2 years, we provided full monitoring and prompt respond for amendments and modifications or any bugs interfere.
