DBDC is the leading Bollywood school in Finland. Daniel Paul, the CEO and founder of DBDC has succeeded in making Bollywood popular in Finland and he’s just getting started. DBDC produces spectacular shows for various events, festivals and competitions – the energy and colour of Bollywood is a sight to be seen.
For DBDC I had to build a website with specific features like:
- Google Calendar Integration
- Existing Booking System Integration
- Photo and Video Gallery
- Google Maps Integration
When I started working on this project, one of the most exciting things was to create a website for such a colourful client. I wanted the website to represent the amazing atmosphere of Bollywood and DBDC – happiness, colour, raw energy, positivity!
The biggest challenge of this project was integrating Google Calendar with the website. The client uses Google Calendar exclusively for creating and managing their weekly schedule. It was necessary that the website was able to talk to the calendar, retrieve data and link the data with the corresponding class description.
From the beginning I was very keen on showcasing the energy and skills of the dance school and its dancers on the website. DBDC has a diverse collection of good quality videos making it easy to insert a video background to the homepage. The saying goes “ A picture is worth a thousand words”, in this case “ A video is worth a thousand pictures”.
An interesting detail of the website was a customised administration panel. The different features of the website made the administration more complicated than usual and the person from DBDC in charge of updates of the website needed a simple, easy way to publish on the website. I simplified the administration panel to get rid of the unnecessary menus that were not useful for the client. DBDC was very happy with this solution.
This was absolutely a very fun project to work with!
