Otreva teamed up with Shillster & APPEK to help create their technology platform from the ground up. We started with Zend Framework 2 (PHP) for the web frontend, marketer management backend, and API for the iOS applications. The web frontend and backend is fully responsive and was created with the help of the Foundation 4 Framework.
The main source for our API design thinking for Shillster was REST. Because it is an architectural style and not a strict standard, it allowed for tons of flexibility. Lastly the API was connected to the iOS application which receives all of its data from the same Zend 2 backend. We designed the Shillster platform to be completely stateless. It will scale up or down to follow the demand curve on Amazon Web Service's cloud computing platform.
