The Solution

After a few workshops and detailed business analysis with the TechSoup team, we decided to build a platform oriented around user’s easy access to various types of content: articles, events’ descriptions, tutorials and products.

In simple words, we built a web portal with an advanced search engine (based on Elasticsearch) equiped with numerous options, that gives users precise and detailed search results, from blog posts, tutorials, products and other content related to the phrase or keyword they are looking for.

From the technological side, the entire project is found on AngularJS and Python-based Django server framework (with Django REST framework). For the deployment and testing needs, we used Docker. This choices gave us the opportunity to build, ship and test the TechSoup platform without worrying about environmental inconsistence.

Our main goal is to support NGOs and social institutions in the effective use of innovative technology to raise NGOs efficiency to the next level. We all need to work better and faster to build a clear and consistent social community of NGOs, social activists, and IT specialists to create a good, self-supporting environment.

Because of our technological focus, we decided to partner up with TEONITE to build a reliable and user-friendly platform. Thanks to mutual respect and good teamwork, our goals and ideas were molded into the TechSoup.pl platform.
