  • Among the first social Network for Minors
  • Live in 2007


Saywire is one of the first social networks for minors complying in large part with COPPA. In fact, it was started even before the term social network came into common use. My company was hired to provide remote web application development services, both front and back ends. We set up and maintained the code repository and automated deployment into staging and production environments, including the ability to roll back if needed. We provided PHP and corresponding MySQL, HTML, and JavaScript for large portions of early versions of the web site and provided input on how best to use the Fusebox web application framework.


Early versions of were based on Fusebox in a LAMP environment. We used Subversion as our code repository and incorporated a variety of client-side technologies (CSS2 and JavaScript).
