Vernum GmbH - www.vernum.com
founder and developer
January, 2000 - February, 2004 / Germany

Two friends of mine are in the egg business and we had the idea of starting a marketplace for eggs on the Internet with the ability to trade eggs in different forms of auctions (normal, reverse), we delivered market news and offered a place to exchange information.

As the developer, I used Perl, PHP and mySQL to create a dynamic and flexible system to trade the same product in German, English and Dutch. In a later version, access via mobile phones was also integrated.

We closed the auction in February 2004 due to other priorities.
