The one dollar website

The one dollar website

– theonedollarwebsite.com –   The one dollar project born as a practical example of an article of this website. The idea explores the limits of the costs reduction in technology. It based on the fact that the kind of websites proposed require less storage space than a photo taken by an iPhone. So, if you can share easily a picture since your phone, you can store for free this kind of simple websites. In addition, you also need a domain, a name on internet, in order have a serious website. However, thanks to competence, you can get them for a price as low as one dollar. Of course is just an idea and definitely is more practical to pay an extra price for an upper service. Like for example, a WordPress site with an elegant theme. However, the tendency is clear, Scaleway for example, allows you to have an independent server for 3 euros per month, and Amazon Web Services prices are getting more and more attractive with time. We already know what this means for individuals. If you can see opportunities, the barriers are getting lower. But for organizations is just another reminder of the fact which push this drop on prices. The hybrid cloud is here to stay. Other companies can store better and cheaper your data.

At the beginning of 2014 I realize that by mixing some new technologies, I could make one mobile app. I do not know programming and by that time there wasn’t app templates available on codecanyon. Therefore, limited by technology, I decided to make something simple to help my hometown: ¨Barco a Vigo¨, an app that informs about the ferry schedule between Vigo, the biggest city of Galicia, and the two most important towns in the area. Other secondary but necessary tasks where: Raise the money to cover the expenses required to publish a mobile app. Create a promotional video. Build a homepage for the project. Design posters and other marketing material. In conclusion, an interesting project that allowed me to learn about many different technologies. In addition, I could prove that things, in theory unachievable, like create apps if you don’t know programming, can be done if you are a fast learner and can find and manage key information. Technical details of the project and code. Video of the app in use (soon). Official website. Google play.  ...
