Openjobs is a very cool project where I had the opportunity to work in partnership with my brother. It’s basically a job board target for the Brazilian Market, inspired by Krop, 37signals GigBoard and Authentic Jobs.

One of the coolest things about this project was the freedom I had to create the design and the CSS. We used a web framework called Wicket, which really makes designing and developing web apps very easy and straightforward. Besides that we are creating widgets so everybody can publish them on their blogs, and in the near future we will be releasing an Open Social widget as well for the Orkut mainly.

With proper mark-up/logic separation, a POJO data model, and a refreshing lack of XML, Apache Wicket makes developing web-apps simple and enjoyable again. Swap the boilerplate, complex debugging and brittle code for powerful, reusable components written with plain Java and HTML.
