Symfony Blog:
Nashville Flood Relief Website Built with Symfony
May 17, 2010 @ 14:22:51

On the Symfony blog today there's a new post spotlighting a site, written in Symfony, that was created to help those affected by the flooding in Nashville, Tennessee.

Though the city of Nashville was physically damaged [from the flooding], the spirit of the people was not. The local technology community quickly sprung into action to produce DonateNashville.org, a fully featured symfony 1.4 application to help organize flood relief efforts throughout the city. The project manager, Chip Hayner, took the time to answer some questions about the experience.

The site was built in a matter of days and within twenty-four hours they already had over one thousand visitors and, by the time it was all said and done, the help of 35 other people and around ten different bits of technology to get it all done. And, of course, it's all been open sourced.
