STRATEGY

As per the client requirement, the developers mainly looked at priority tasks assigned by the client and later implement those according to the analysis and objectives. This was the main strategy put forward. Client meetings and feedback sessions were conducted on regular basis for corrections if any.

WHAT WE DID ?

According to the project plan, we developed a Donation app for NGOs which is available for all Android devices.

Users login to this application via Facebook, Gmail and mobile numbers. The data like name, gender, etc were collected from Facebook/Gmail and stored on our database.

Almost 26 categories were added to the home screen and implemented secured payment gateways for donation as well as purchase.

Our adroit developers and designers worked for 3 months completely on this project to fulfill the client’s requirement.

A very strong Admin panel was created who had the eligibility to add/ remove events, products, and information of NGO etc.

APP FLOW

DESIGN

The design for this app was very simple and elegant as per the client suggestion. Alterations were made till the client approval.

SCOPE

Sahrdaya is an Android Donation App. Django REST Framework was used to build WebAPIs.

The languages used to develop Sahrdaya app are:

  • Android: Java
  • Backend: PHP
  • Database: MySql

 

DEVELOPMENT

Completion of the project was made in 3 months where 2 Developers and two backend Developers worked with their full effort. During this period, the project was divided into 5 milestones.

At this time, most of the communication was done through skype and over phone. At the final stage, the client was invited and a demo was performed.

As per client suggestion, several alterations were made till the client satisfaction and a final version of Sahrdaya was successfully launched on both web and on mobile.

Agile model was followed throughout the process.

TESTING

Manual Testing was performed to test the efficiency of the app. Manual testing requires more effort than the automation, it successfully checks for bugs, if any, in the software system

Selenuim is the tool used for testing this app. The methodologies used for manual testing are

  • Black Box testing
  • White Box testing
  • Grey Box testing

Black Box Testing is a software testing method in which testers evaluate the functionality of the software under test without looking at the internal code structure.

White Box Testing is based on applications internal code structure. In white-box testing, an internal perspective of the system, as well as programming skills, is used to design test cases.

Grey box is the combination of both White Box and Black Box Testing. The tester who works on this type of testing needs to have access to design documents.

INVESTMENT IN PERSON

The power which made this project successful consists of a dedicated Project Manager, 4 Developers (2 Developer+2 Backend Developer), Quality Analyst, Tester and a Designer who were responsible to convert client requirements into reality. Completion of this app required tenure of three months.

OUR ACHIEVEMENT

Knowing that the client is fully satisfied and happy with the app we created and getting the feedback as this was the one they had in mind, is the greatest achievement that the Team Redbytes could receive.
