Want to live anywhere in the world? Want lifestyle automation?
Private Box provides an online mail service with a New Zealand permanent address.
We've built Private Box web application over the last 10 years on open source tech such as PHP and Mysql.
The main problem has been moving from legacy PHP code into a more test driven development enviroment with automated testing / continuous integration.
The public, members only and admin area are completely built as web applications - there is no bespoke software need windows machines (except the scanner driver - although we are working to remove this as well).
Integration with other cloud providers like Evernote and Amazone Web Services is a way to offer new features quickly and easily.
