GPCIC project done!!

8 Aug
table_back.gif Wow!! Finally I am done.

GPCIC stands for Grameen Phone Community Information Center.

This will be a big information bank for Bangladesh. The project is Organize by Grameen Phone, Katalist and Grameen Telecom. Information collected based on than in 26 categories. Basically Organizational Structure, Agriculture, Local communication, women activates, bank, local business, NGO activities and so on.

I choose CakePhp as Frame Work for this project. And the project is totaly Bangla Based. I use Uni-Bijoy layout witch is similar to Bijoy keyboard layout and Bangla.ttf as font.

Oh. I had to pass some difficulties. I feel strange after finishing the project. Some time I found myself under deep shit. First of all had to make a common module for my admin panel. Really a panic time I pass then because I cold not show the depth of my work to my senior as it was just row coding. After one week when I complete the module and my senior was smiling. Because we can do all stuff like Add, Edit, Delete, View of my 26 Database tables and I can add all those operation in a new Database table with in 5 minute.

Oh no. Then a new challenge arises. In these days I was using Bnagla by installing a software in my pc call Uni-Bijoy. But the site needs an independent Bangla typing system and my tension started. This shit makes my life hell. After five days with my hard work I found it done. User can type and view Bangla font there. I choose JavaScript do full feel it and EOT to supply font to clients machine.Then I made some other stuff like dynamic menu of Division-District-Thana, Dynamic menu for content download and page creation, Thick box display, Bread curb etc.I though I passed my tuff time.
Then a bull shit arises. I got 100 CIC’s information which already typed in an Excel file in Sutonny MJ. Now any how I have to insert those shit in my Database. How and what I have to do? Really I find myself in a toxic period. Finally I could make a Parser. This module convert a Sutonny MJ typed Excel(.csv) file in to Unicode Typed Excel file(.csv) and finally I populate the DB.

And the final task was making a simple manual. It was just typing a long Bangla sheet about the feature, usages.

But I was fall in a frustration when we demonstrate our first Beta version. Truely it was full of errors.

Finally it was done after hard working of more couple of week!!! Oh it’s done.

    you marketing guys are so dumb !! Mr.Shakil u got angry cuz rubel didn’t mention your name. so you think u were a part of this project. if it is so, then shouldn’t you also be cooperate to arrange a dinner party ? why only rubel?? Mr.Mahady ! where were you before man ? why you started writing when you saw shakil was talking about buffet?? you guys are proving that marketing ppl are always dumb. they ask for buffet to someone who deserve a huge party from US. they make somebody a body guard when they cant make that type relation between them ! oh my jealous frnds…forget it !
    come to the point ….lets ask our boss to organize a party for the GPCIC ! MR.CUZZIN you should lead us to meet our boss. by the way this is a great chance for you to prove that you are not that Dumbbuss !!

    Oh my Frnd Junal:

    I knw why you are in the developer side. If we guys are dumb than u are a asshole. You knw why, coz u are also a part of the project but ur boss didnt mention ur name. Im fighting not for me butg for all of u.

  16. Rubel November 22, 2007 at 7:20 pm #

    Hi Montaquim,
    This is a project about the rural structure of Bangladesh. I am sorry I could not refer the website URL when I wrote the post. Recently the website hosted in You can collect you necessary information from there.


  17. remi June 9, 2008 at 8:46 am #

    The site you have stated is not working AT ALL.

  18. Rubel June 9, 2008 at 11:48 am #

    I noticed that.
    I am extremely sorry. May be the administrators (Grameen Phone & Grameen Telecom) are not taking care of the website. In deed this was a worth full resources and we are losing it.

    Thanks for your comments.
