Social network for goods promotion

Challenge

Ch

Our client needs a place for local businesses and individual entrepreneurs, where they can promote and sell their goods with the ability of social interaction - comments, likes, reposts, etc.

Client needs to prepare beta release in 6 months after development started.

We have mockups that explain functionality but they were not very detailed.

We need to provide a scalable system that allows operating with at least 10 000 users online. 

The system must have "Facebook" functionality and the ability to automatically schedule posting.

Ap

Approach

We decided to provide full cloud architecture with Vue.JS and TypeScript on the front end and .Net 6 on the back end. We choose .Net because it has best-in-class performance and allows us to build scalable systems. All not specific task like authentification, notifications, storing images and video, marketing emails and payments was done through integrations with Amazon Cognito, Twillio, Amazon S3, MailChimp, and Stripe.

We setup CI/CD pipelines that allow us to run UnitTests, and build sandboxes for testing after every PR.

All work was done in an Agile way with 2 weeks sprints. The core team has 2 developers on the front end and two on the back end. Since most of our developers are full-stack we have flexibility in choosing particular tasks to implement. The project manager was involved in coordination between PO, key customers ant the team
