Fırat Kodaz, who is a full-stack developer, has been my stakeholder in the project. I have worked with him on many projects before. Fırat has worked under my supervision on developing the front-end, integrating them into Ecwid and developing additional services of the project. Since we had to work remotely, we used Trello to keep track of the workflow and Slack to communicate during the project.
The project took longer than we planned. One of the main reasons for this was that Ecwid Rest API could not exactly meet
the specific needs of the project and the additional functions that emerged upon the company’s requests. Throughout the whole process, we tried to find solutions to the problems by contacting with Ecwid Development Team. We made extra effort to solve the problems that couldn’t be solved by Ecwid, by changing the interface design or doing some additional developments. I strived to adapt to the project the solutions that I and Mr Fırat produced to the technical issues that were encountered, by considering the user experience.
We designed and developed a separate dashboard to manage the features, like a blog, slider etc, that were not included in the API service and integrated it into Ecwid. We wanted to add an extra value to the work by optimizing the website for the search engines after completing all the developing and integration process of the project.
