The AFL trade week and resulting national player draft are two of the biggest and most hyped events of the off-season calendar.
For the 2010 NAB AFL Draft a ground-up redeveloped live event tracking web application was successfully developed and deployed for the AFL by Magnetikonline.
Providing full statistics and video highlight packages per player, view by club/round display options and a page design in keeping with the rest of the AFL.com.au website and NAB sponsorship branding.
In addition, full hosting of the application was handled by Magnetikonline, providing viewers with sub 10 second updates and delivered over 10.2 million player selection requests during the three hour peak period window.
In a move away from their traditional print catalogues produced at the commencement of each fashion season, Country Road decided it was time to provide their loyal customer base with a richer and interactive digital catalogue viewing experience.
The series of catalogue editions provided viewers with high quality imagery, full screen product previews, roll-over and touch gesture "hot spots" displaying popup product details, regional pricing and the ability to share individual product spreads on Facebook.
To give an app like feel, catalogue pages were intelligently "lazy loaded" only as required and support was provided for left/right swipe gestures available on tablet browsing devices.
To help build fan engagement with clubs the AFL commissioned the creation of the "Best 22" web application for the 2011 season, giving users the opportunity to make predicted starting player selections for their club at each game and have those selections ranked against other users in real time.
The application was themed for each club with background/header graphics and distinctive colour schemes, provided full details for each player on the clubs roster (including current injury status) and allowed users to share their final selections via Facebook and Twitter.
Hosting for the system was successfully managed by Magnetikonline throughout the entire AFL season.

A selection of projects and utilities I have created which I'm sharing with the world at large.
@gnome I take that back - user error! (file permissions!).
Argh @gnome - the behaviour of meld with version 3.12.x and symlinks is really bad now - rather unworkable when using it as a Git difftool.
