OuiCrew was truly a full-stack web development project. I did everything from designing the website to developing the API. Coming from a background of front-end development and design, I was comfortable with those parts of the project. Developing the back-end was all new to me, and therefore had its challenges. However, I took it as an opportunity to learn a new skill set to expand my capabilities as a developer.
For the UX/UI, I choose to go with a standard dashboard layout. This would allow users to become familiar with the web app quickly. I also put a lot of emphasis on user feedback to ensure that the users would understand what was happening while using the web app. For the front-end framework, I choose to use Vue, as I am most familiar with it. Even though I choose a standard layout, I wrote all the styles myself to ensure optimal customization.
