GoRaffleIt is the brainchild of young Dublin Tech Entrepreneur Jonnie O’Malley.
He contacted us to discuss his idea of a raffle platform initially for charities and individuals to have a bit of fun using the age old tradition of raffles with a modern digital twist.
The initial steps of this project where to assess the needs of such a platform, how it would look and function.
Goraffleit is essentially a social network platform but with an e-commerce twist, the planning phase was quite indepth as we had to take into consideration a lot of things related to security, user experience, legalities etc.
The site itself is a completely custom job built using Laravel and Angular as well as a whole host of other technologies and has seen some impressive traffic generating €500k+ in one month during COVID-19 lockdown which was a real test of its durability and also the infrastructure necessary to keep it running.
