Overall I am very happy with our web-app as we ended up having time to add features that we hadn’t planned to add. As the first time I had made a fully functioning website and having to code in PHP (which I had never done before) I was pleased that by the end of the project I was able to fix errors, add code such as queries and functions and understand the code we had written.
Teamwork played a vital role in being able to finish our web-app. We spent a lot of time outside tutorials trying to fix the code we had written and making sure we had made it to our initial aims of a functioning database connected site with the elements we had set out to incorporate into the site.
Kyle helped us fix the complicated errors and took us through the code that we may not have understood fully, meaning we had a good knowledge of the code we had written. Bootstrap was a very helpful tool in this project and gave us a great CSS basis to work from so we had more time to work out the PHP. We even used a little bit of jQuery to enhance our site and give it some aesthetically pleasing elements like the scrolling down of the log in and sign up forms.
If I was to do this project again I may choose to maybe be a bit more adventurous with the site and do more research on PHP to find some other functions we had not thought of in this project. Design wasn’t our main priority for this project but I would have liked to spend more time on the branding and colours to make a website that would potentially be ready for full use. However I feel that I would be a lot more competent in writing my PHP as I know fully understand its capabilities and how to structure the code to make a fully functioning site.
