Have you ever wanted to learn how to invest in stocks? If yes, you’ll need to learn chinese 🙂

So a couple months ago, a former work colleague and friend asked me to start the development of a website for him. He’s taken a successful English-based website and created a website for Chinese-speaking investors. His website is now live at www.5168options.com

His website is basically a free and paid membership-based content management system. Users who pay for the membership are given access to highly informative and frequently updated content. He needed a quick, yet working mock-up of the site to present to his inner circle.

I created his website using Dreamweaver as the developer environment. I included the Facebook login integration into the site for a more user-friendly experience. The paid transactions are done with Paypal’s e-commerce Merchant Services. The language translation between Chinese Simplified to Chinese Traditional was done with Google’s Website Translator. ASP and Access database stores the user login data and memberships. And the stock ticker is simply a javascript snippet.

update: due to time contraints I have relieved myself from the day-to-day maintenance of the site.

This is a test

My first e-Commerce site! Buy your Metabolife now!

my first e-Commerce and ASP site!

A high school buddy and I decided to dabble in eCommerce. He is somewhat a medical expert and I am somewhat a technical expert so I took on the task of creating an eCommerce website for us. Our website allows consumers to buy Metabolife and other supplements through an online store.

This was my first time using ASP to create an entire website. With ASP I was able to construct a shopping cart feature and use SQL to store our orders in a database. The orders are processed through a 3rd party merchant. 

We launched the website a couple weeks after my college graduation and called it SynergyCommerce.

*update: SynergyCommerce was short-lived but was great for my continuing self-education.
