Due to the compressed timeframe and that I was handling all the design and front-end development myself I decided to utilize the exisiting Bootstrap 4 framework. I wrote a new theme based on my design in SASS and styled the front-end components within a responsive grid layout. The Skills Matrix was the first responsive app to come out of our department.
WebEx Design Reviews
Working remotely in one week sprints, I knew it was important to design an interface that would be easy to comprehend visually over a WebEx call. I created a component library in Sketch for myself, and designed high fidelity mockups instead of wireframes to gather feedback on the final design.
Invision came in handy, allowing me to demo the different ways to interact with the UI and communicate the process for completing tasks. During design reviews I captured feedback with comments in Invision, and followed up with stakeholders over email to gather additional feedback on my revisions.
This project helped me learn to use Visual Studio as my text editor and for version control of my code. After completing design, I was heavily involved in programming and styling the front-end gaining good experience with VS and Bootstrap v4.
I felt a great sense of accomplishment working on the project from start to finish and knowing we had built a tool that would see good use internally by our fellow teammates at Presidio.
