Lester Chan's Webpage 3.0
Myself · 2008
This is also known as "GaMerZ HomePage Version 3.0", but I have renamed it to "Lester Chan's Website" as I want my readers to focus more on my real name rather than my alias. It took me about a year of testing and planning to migrate from version 2.0 to 3.0 as it involves a lot of changes. The most significant change is the upgrade of WordPress 1.5.1 to WordPress 2.5.1.
Prior to version 3.0, the site is built independently of WordPress and hence WordPress is integrated into my site framework. But as of version 3.0, the site is built around WordPress and that makes upgrading WordPress and maintaing my content easier.

GaMerZ Expenses Tracking System
Myself · 2005
» Live Demo: http://expenses.lesterchan.net/ (requires registration)
Many friends I knew are using Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet to keep track of their monthly expenses. This method is both time consuming and prone to errors. I created this web application to automate the process of tracking their monthly expenses and added in some nifty features. It is free for everyone, all you need to do is just to register an account and you can keep track of your expenses online.
GaMerZ Army Schedule Calendar
Myself · 2005
I had served my national service and it is based on a shift system (mount, dismount, training, standby). Thus, I created this schedule calendar in order to find out a specific shift on a specific date. It saves me time because I only need 4 steps to get what I want instead of looking through my marked calendar.

GaMerZ HomePage Version 2.0
Myself · 2004
After 2 years, I finally decided to give my homepage a face lift, the colours used are more vibrant and looks much brighter than the previous version. I also updated the blogging system from b2 to WordPress and created a couple of WordPress Hacks like wp-polls, wp-stats, wp-online, wp-members, wp-search, etc to boost the functionality of the site. I have also updated the Gallery Viewer and Image Viewer to version 2.0 which is coded from scratch and thus it is more efficient. The whole site now runs more efficiently because all of the pages are also coded from scratch.
GaMerZ HomePage Version 1.0
Myself · 2002
Technically, this website is an assignment for my WEBP module during my first year in Singapore Polytechnic. It just started out with HTML pages as that is our requirements. After getting my grades for this module which is a distinction (AD), I changed the whole site to make it more dynamic using PHP but still retaining the same layout. When some occasions came like Valentine's Day, Christmas and Chinese New Year, I would change the layout colour and the header to reflect the occasion. The 2 colours that I used are blue and red, as shown in the screenshots.
Counter-Strike City [CS City]
Myself · 2000
In the year 1999 to 2002, Counter-Strike (CS) was the most popular online first person shooter game. At that time, there was no website that is dedicated to Singaporean who played Counter-Strike. CS City was the first and it slowly builds up a small CS community here in Singapore. It started out with just one staff (me) and eventually I recruited 5 more staff to help me manage the website. This is one of my best websites which has gotten the most unique hits (900 unique hits) and it is featured on CS Nation (Biggest Counter-Strike Fan Site) twice. Sad to say, due to some hosting problems, the website is now gone.
All Events Group Pte Ltd · 2007
All Events Group (AEG) is a business-to-business information and media company helping businesses build their competitive edge through industry intelligence, strategic skills and key relationships. We provide conferences, professional training solutions, congresses, exhibitions and trade shows, and industry online communities and publications in a portfolio of industries, including, finance, mining, energy and human resources.
The Content Management System (CMS) is built from scratch and there are a total of 9 modules (Currencies, Users, Categories, Events, News, Jobs, Glossary, Gallery and Forum) built into it. This is my most complicated project to date as my client requires each event to be of a different layout with difference images in its own folder, while maintaining the ease of updating the content through the CMS.
The CMS is also integrated with eNETS to cater for online payment and hence instant approval for registrations once it is paid.
Graphics and layout are given to me by my client and hence I did not do any designing to it.
In addition to the website, I also did a web-based customer database for my client allowing him to add, edit, delete and search his clients through a web browser.
First Food Industries Pte Ltd · 2006

The Content Management System (CMS) is built from scratch and there are a total of 6 modules (Users, News, Products, Products Meta Data, Categories and Gallery) built into it.
My client wants the website to be a online product catalog rather than an e-commerce store and hence no online payment is catered.

Raffles Airline HR Management System
NUS · Information Systems Development Project Module (CS3214) · 2007
We are suppose to develop a HR Management System for Raffles Airline using Java Enterprise Edition (J2EE) with either MYSQL or Derby as the database and strictly following the Model-view-controller (MVC) approach. We chose MYSQL as we are more proficient in it. There are a total of 10 official modules to be developed in this project. We managed to develop all 10 of it and on top of that, we came out with our own modules as well.
I was in charge of planning and developing a framework in order to integrate all the modules developed by my teammates into a single complete site. In addition to that, I also developed the Retirement/Re-employment module, security module, routing module, messaging module as well as converting the layout from PSD to HTML.
This module is worth 8 MCs which is the weight-age of 2 modules in National University of Singapore (NUS). I was the group leader for this project consisting of 6 members (including myself) and hence I got an A- grade for this module. We took about 3 months to complete this complicated project.
SP · Premiere Value Group · 2004
This is my internship project in Singapore Polytechnic. It is the biggest PHP based project that I had done. It is a mini scale CMS created to target education companies. It has users, user groups, forums, polls, categories/subcategories, documents, attachments and database management in the administrative panel. It has 3 level of users, Administrators, Instructors and Students. The templating system of this CMS is smarty, thus administrators can change the front-end look of the CMS very easily.
