Project Challenges:

  • While number of merchants is limited, it is hard for us to gather more feedback to improve on usability of the merchant side
  • Since DingGo is a start up company, the requirements can change along time. We need to react fast to adapt the changes.

Team Reflection

Working as a team requires everyone's efforts and responsibility. Team makes every member stronger than one individual, and at the same time, each individual contributes the team and bring a team to a new level. All for one. One for all.

Individual Reflection

Xia Xueying
Project Manager & Quality Assurance Analyst

As a project manager, I learnt the importance of good time management and resource planning. through out the project, I also learnt how to manage our stakeholders effectively and to be adaptable and realistic to changes that were presented to our team. It has also help to hone my communication skills which will be helpful for future projects. It has enabled me to approach the project from a larger perspective and to truly empathize with our sponsor's problems.
Wang Yiyi
UI Developer & Business Analyst

As a UI designer, I learned how to design and develop UI using CSS, Java Script and so on. I also learned to work closely with real users to improve usability and aesthetics of the application. Many feedbacks from users and merchants during UAT can help me develop a better UI design. Also I learned to work with team mates closely to make sure the continuity and unity of codes and UI. As the business analyst, I learned to better gather and analyse requirements from sponsor to help the team understand the sponsor’s business model and requirements.

Gao Yiming

Between midterm and final, I have learned a lot about the technologies such as javascript and Jquery. Besides the technologies, I've also leaned a lot about stakeholder management, the importance of efficient communication, and the importance of user testing, as the users usually think more than us.

Cao Xinge

From the acceptance till now, as my role changed from Back-end Developer & PM Assistant to Back-end Developer and Front-end Developer, I learnt a lot about the UI design and developing. I am more familiar with CSS and JavaScript now. As I focus more on the mobile optimization, I learn more about the how to make our web application response effectively for different kinds of devices. Moreover, as we are using the bootstrap framework, I explored on how to use different elements. In addition, the feedback from the real users gave me ideas about how to make our application more user friendly.
