There are lots of reasons for why we have chosen the Flickr API as our preferred image supplier. For one I love the easy to use API and we are particularly interested in the geo coding and places methods that could really benefit our community.
There is also lots of pre-exisiting PHP lib files such as ZEND and various Codeigniter libraries that will be able to interact well with flickr. We are also interested in using the swfuploader for a simple uploader to the flickr API.
Overall we found Flickr to meet all our current Beta needs and a great partner to use for future proofing. Expect to see full flickr integration at launch. Our new account will be http://www.flickr.com/photos/whaddado/, there will be lots of testing on this account over the coming months but eventually you will see user photos start to appear in here.

Team Whaddado has expanded and is currently being developed in 3 countries. The UK is still handling the core development however there are developers in both Czech Republic and Romania. Currently we are seeking more developers that specialize in advance PHP OOP and Codeigniter development. Along with backend development we will begin to expand the front end development team to complete new designs coming out of the London office.

It has been confirmed that Whaddado will continue to use the PHP framework Codeigniter for its Beta build. This was succesfully used for the whaddado Alpha site and has been an excellent RAD tool. We will be planning on pushing the framework to its limits and are confident it will allow the flexibility and the lightweight benifits it provides over other frameworks such as PHP Cake and Symfony.
Additionally we will be integrating the Zend Library files where possible and extending these to complete our 3rd party API integrations.
Currently we are looking for experts in Codeigniter php that can work within virtual teams to help deliver the Beta for Q1 2010.
