Brief & Problem Statement
Implement a modern, usable web store using a Representational state transfer (REST) Application Programming Interface (API), a constant integration, constant development (CICD) pipeline, and a persistence layer. Then make the website accessible to anyone with the web address using a Platform as a Service (PaaS) such as Heroku or Google App Engine.
In a short amount of time our team was able to implement a lot of the features we had hoped for. We divided and conquered, focussing on what our individual expertise was, but this also hindered us because the developer tasked with setting up the database did not reach out for help soon enough, which left us with a lot of design work up front and then a scramble to connect the front-end to the back-end. Although we were happy with the results of the project, better communication could have allowed us to do even more with the project and add features like accessibility and language translation, which most modern web stores include.
