Challenge

The project proved to be interesting first and foremost in terms of its external and internal dependencies. We had to integrate with BigBlueButton, a tool for online video courses.

Another integration was with PayPal payment system in order to support organization of paid courses - namely, secure payments processed by SyncMinds rather than directly by a given “trainer”.

SyncMinds data had to be additionally reprocessed through QuickSync mechanism, a forum-like tool that unlike standard fora, dynamically “disseminates” a question so that it can be associated with and then answered by users related to a given area. The same mechanism was also to be used to filter out a relevant knowledge base already present in the system. Optimization of this search mechanism was a significant part of the project.

Story

The client contacted us with an idea to create a platform which would easily connect people interested in improving their knowledge in similar disciplines. This in turn would make it possible to create relations between persons/organizations offering and searching for courses on given topics.

We received an introductory specification. Working along with the client in a design sprint, we prepared initial plan guidelines, mockups, as well as more detailed specification and backlog.

Implementation was handled by a team of two developers.
