Virtual Samui – The only guide you need!

Unique Flash Website

MySQL Database + Adobe Flash Technology

The Virtual Samui website was one of its kind. Complete with a Flash animated front-end & seamlessly integrated with a complex MySQL database. This Flash / Database hybrid website pushed me to learn a whole new level of code.

The click & drag map (with zoom in/out) worked much like the todays Google Maps™ user experience. Yet this, developed back in 2002, was before Google had even launched anything like it.

What’s more, there were hardly any Flash websites integrated with dynamic database content back then. The Virtual Samui online directory was a truly unique user experience.

Big Database – Fast & Easy to Update!

As an online tourism directory & advertising platform, managing the sponsors and content was a daily task. I developed a custom Content Management System that took care of most things. The organisation, categorisation and daily autonomous tasks were all made super fast & easy. This allowed more time for marketing to drive traffic to the website.

It was a great online business that taught me lots about managing an online advertising portal. I developed some pretty good database engineering experience, and pushed my level of Flash technology no end.
