The Return of Halalan

After many months of stagnant activity, Halalan will be revived. This time the project proponents are dedicated than ever in finishing the project.

Halalan will be written from scratch. PHP, HypWorks and PostgresSQL are still the main technologies for the project.

I, Diwa del Mundo, will still act as the Project Leader and Manager for the project. Waldemar Bautista will take the position of Lead Developer.

We are actually looking for more people in developing the project. We are in need of:

  • developers (PHP, Postgres, etc)
  • graphic artists
  • content developers (for advocacy, documentation, etc)
  • testers
