Serviço Educativo

In the past two and a half months I've been in charge of a new solution called Serviço Educativo. It's main goal is to organize and make readily available information regarding education activities hosted by museums, theaters, gardens, companies, and any other entity providing these kinds of services, in Portugal.

On the 1st of September, the solution went live. We made a backoffice for those entities to add their own information and events, an android app and a windows phone app to browse the available data. In development are still the iOS app and the web page which will be ready before year-end. The solution is free in all app stores, and entities must only contact us to get their credentials, again, for free. More information can be found at http://servicoeducativo.pt. I would like to state again, that this solution is, for now, just available in Portugal.

This project has been a wonderful experience and I would like to thank all those involved. I would like to thank +Filipa Lopes with whom the idea for this project was created, +Eduardo Vieitas , IT People Consulting CEO that made the bet and is funding the whole project and +Nuno Silva who has been in charge of all project communication. I would also like to thank my father, +Alvaro Milagaia, and again +Filipa Lopes and +Nuno Silva who all have been adding the first batch of entities into the system. We're closing in on 200 entities in Continental Portugal, Azores and Madeira. Thank you all very much.

We're now in production and I couldn't be happier. We've had very good feedback in this first month and have great hopes for the future. If you're in Portugal and want to check out which education activities are available near you, go to the app store of your device, search for "Serviço Educativo" and check it out. Oh, and don't forget to leave feedback.
