Super fun project and very stressful! I’m usually the developer on all my projects but a new client had a supper quick timeline, “rocket speed” he said. I had a 4 weeks to locate some developers to help, design several views, and implement them in IOS.
One project highlight is using a noSQL database to work with time-series data. The app is very data heavy, so charts are a big deal. At first glance, noSql doesn’t seem like the best technology for the job, but I found a couple good articles on time series data in MongoDB and it actually worked out quite nicely.
Another project highlight is the amount of time it took to complete the app. Finding help turned out to be a little more complicated than I thought, I also spent some time waiting on stuff from the client. In the end, we got going on the project about a week late and finished the project about a week late. I was supper bummed, this was the first deadline I’ve missed since starting my business. That said, I still think it is a super accomplishment go to from nothing to a fully functioning app in 4 weeks.
I learned a lot in this project and look forward to more apps in the future.
