The challenge

GLP was searching for a tech partner that could deliver an MVP in under two weeks. The main challenge was defining the ideal scope, implementing and releasing the app in such a short time. Even with this time pressure, we started the project with remote workshops to define the user story map and dive deep into the user’s journey. We've gathered everyone involved in the project — from the founder to the development team — so that everyone could bring their viewpoint on board. During that meeting, we've changed the chosen technology and adapted the scope twice to make sure we could deliver on time and the application could be adopted by the Nigerian market. After the workshops, we were sure that everyone was on the same page and we could begin the implementation.

The challenge was to create an app MVP in 14 days aimed at connecting patients with doctors during the coronavirus pandemic. We focused on simple user flow, developing only the most necessary features and releasing the app as fast as possible.

When working on the project we focused on using the most recent technologies.

We had to ensure quick development time. The SocialHealth technology stack is:

    Front-end

  • TypeScript (Superset of JavaScript)
  • React (UI Library)
  • Material UI (UI Framework)
  • Redux + Redux Toolkit (State management)
  • React Hook Form (Forms management)
  • Twillio (Video calls)

    Backend

  • Ruby
  • Ruby on Rails
  • PostgreSQL
  • JWT Tokens
  • Google Cloud Services

Communication is one of our most important values and a habit we support at every stage of our development process. The conversations are executed through digital tooling so the context is never lost. We use Slack for chat, Jira for planning, and Github for code reviews and discussion.
