Mark from Bude Tourist Information Centre approached me to develop a bespoke business system to automate the booking process for the Canal Suite meeting room.
My starting point was to document a clear understanding of this projects requirements, which included a visual solution for the application’s branding and the user interface. This was then reviewed by Mark, with subsequent adjustments made based on his feedback.
It was then simply a matter of breaking the project down into weekly sprints, with the purpose of focusing on features that would benefit the users of the system. As soon as each new system feature was developed it was deployed to the live system, allowing users to benefit from the latest features as soon as possible
Overall the project involved setting up the system’s infrastructure, which consisted of:
- Code repositories
- A Development Environment
- The Development of an API Backend built using Laravel and VueJS for the Frontend Development
- Production Server Configuration – using a redis database for the queue system and a mysql database for the data storage
- Clear deployment processes with version control
