National Theatre Live

Website using Geolocation

The Concept

NTLive is a project run by the National Theatre to broadcast live theatre performances taking place in London to cinemas around the world. The key aspect of the website I worked on was the geolocation functionality, allowing users to find cinemas taking part close to their location.

The Technology

NTLive is built using PHP and Zend Framework 2. Based on MongoDB - accessed via Doctrine - I built a number of modules designed to perform geolocation based queries against the database schema that I created.

As part of this project I also created a reusable Zend Framework 2 module designed to access Google's geolocation APIs.
