Quick questions Rick Zed

Hi Rick Zed, tell us about you self!

I´m the developer of Myjoom, 35y old, I begun my career as a draftman in an electricity company. Later on i specialized in CAD. Thereafter I developed a powerful electrical CAD application (in Lisp) for Autocad and followed programming school. Subsequently I became C++ developer for Autodesk softwares.

During this period, I have gained experience in managing technical support, and writing users manuals. Since years, I have completely changed direction in fulfilling a childhood dream by becoming a train driver in the Swiss Alps. This job gives me many time to practice his main hobby: developping php/joomla applications, by using my C++ skills.

How do Geocode work?

The main purpose of the Geocode Factory component is the display of profiles and/or entries on a map.
After the user has created a map then the map can receive markers. Geocode Factory can create an unlimited number of maps with many customizable settings.

Each map can have their own parameters like :

  • map type
  • zoom limitation
  • template (with differents preconfigured controls),
  • radius
  • clustering

What kind of geolocation features do you think we will see in the future?

I think the main geolocalisation feauture in the future will be a mix of Geocode factory (map of users), a phone application that interact with the user. Take this sample : you are alone in a train, and, in seconds you can see that you have 1 friend 3 place forward you...

What will we see from Myjoom during this year?

This a strategic secret, but I have earth from my little finger that we want see more interaction with frontend on Geocode factory, a new joomla component (compatible with gecodoe factory) to interact with mobile phones, and some other news. We want already offert more service, like 'installation package' and 'geocode service' (we install tools, geocode some data, and uninstall tools) for less money.
