STX NEXT DELIVERED
Verve (StreetTeam) came to us with an original product built in PHP and a long list of reasons why they wanted to switch to Python going forward, referring to it as a more modern solution. Their current development team is well-versed in PHP but not Python, so they were looking for a provider to manage development in the midterm while their own developers got up to speed on using Python.
STX Next programmers joined the high-performing Verve developers as peers to offer their Python expertise. Together, the teams are working on delivering a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) that will function as the springboard and platform for the future of the company. The application is based on a micro-services architecture. STX Next also organized Python Has Power workshops for Verve to help educate their developers.
STX Next have been working really well with my engineering team. They’re demonstrating great skill, craft, and agile thinking in the way they go about their work, and they’re great people to boot.
The most challenging part of this project was integrating multiple microservices with a front-end application without any unnecessary data fetching. We’ve accomplished this by using a Gateway API pattern and with the help of the latest technologies such as GraphQL and Relay.
