www.netploy.com is here!!!

That's it!!!

My last ASP.NET 2.0 project is finally completed. After 6 months of hard work we finally have something up and running and it works like a breeze.

For those of you you can speak French, here is the future of employment:
http://www.netploy.com

For those who can't, an English version is probably going to be out soon. Otherwise, it's always good to learn a new language, especially one as beautiful as French! :)

netploy is a site where you can find work or people who can do a job and make sure that you can work with them remotely with the tools offered :

  • Microsoft SharePoint Services was integrated to the site in Active Directory creation mode as well as host header mode. That basically means that you can create sites with your own URL like "myurl.share.netploy.com"! This provides the freelancer with a "Virtual Desk" accessible from anywhere in the world.
  • On the other hand we also have integrated a fantastic web conferencing tool called GatherPlace and this provides the employer or employee with online meeting facility. Again the url would be the one you have picked (similar to WebOffice) and like "myvirtualconf.meet.netploy.com"
The future is to be able to work from the comfort of your own home!
I have been doing this for the past 6 months and this site is the result, I have never been that productive in my entire life and I am extremely proud of this achievement as I have done it on my own (no development team whatsoever)!

For those of you who are technical, subscribe to www.netploy.com and have a look at the amazing functionalities in place, for those of you who are interested in working from home, enter you CV and wait for the right project!

There is more to come in the near future as we are already looking at improving some functionalities using ATLAS.

Cheers!
Etienne

www.netploy.com is a cool concept. I wish my French were a little better. I'd like to be able to read your site a little more readily.

Best wishes!

Hi Rick,

thank you very much for your feedback!

You are absolutely right and one of the next big tasks for us is to localize the site to English. I have already started to do some work on it.

We had to start with a language and we are more present in France than elsewhere, however I strongly believe that the US and UK are more ready for this big change in work mentality...

We hope that we will have an English site very soon! If you want I can keep you posted when we do

Best regards!

I want to suggest you try http://www.showdocument.com - its an alternative tool for gatherplace that allows document sharing and Free Web meeting in real-time. all the participants in the session see each others' drawing, highlights, etc. It is free and requires no installation.
