Platform Design & Development
Website Design & Development
Our approach to design here was simple, trying to make the users fall in love with the platform from their first experience, because like they say "first impressions lasts". So we tried to do a mix between usability, simplicity, and good UI. From the user experience side, we started by creating an interactive prototype representing the user flow from start to finish, the purpose from this was to collect feedback from our early adapters, as we sent them the prototype and observed their reactions using it, this helps us in identifying UX issues and be more empathetic with the users.
To give the user an exceptional experience during his journey in Octus platform, we used modern front-end technologies. The platform is using one of the famous Frameworks like Angular with very secure access, fully responsive platform using HTML5 and SASS as a CSS pre-processor and Bootstrap 4 as a CSS Framework.
Octus backend is a RESTful API built on to of Symfony 4 PHP Framework. The API is designed according to the ADR pattern (http://pmjones.io/adr/). For real-time chat & notifications , Octus uses Mercure (https://github.com/dunglas/mercure) to push data updates to frontend (Angular side). In order to achieve this in a convenient way , SCRUM was used as a Project Management Framework.
