What a day in the office might look like.
The morning starts with a nice cup of tea or coffee before starting the day. You’re working on a project for the frontend of a webshop, it is your task to improve the user experience on the product search page. The RESTfull search API returns all kind of data, in the meta data you see some facet filters. “That looks interesting. If I could design a page were we can use these facet search filters customers can narrow their search result by clicking on the filters.” You look up the template and start to change some HTML/CSS. Then the phone rings, it’s the warehouse, they want to fulfil an order from a partner but are getting errors. The backlog of orders is piling up and they cannot ship the orders. It’s your job to investigate why the code stopped working. Did we change some code? Did the partner change something? After some investigation you find the bug, changed the code and run the unittest to see if everything still works. Great everything works!! Now push the code to GitHub, after a deployment you can call the warehouse they can restart the shipping. Let’s see, where were we with de frontend design. Oh!! Right on time for the presentation on Friday, I wonder what my colleagues think of the new design !
