Blue Rocket – Online Garage

Team: Ben Buie | 1/30/17

I had a great time working on this site. I was on the project for about 4 months and I helped the team by not only delivering solid code but also as by sharing my expertise with a team that was a bit on the junior side.

In addition, I also learned a ton about working with a large team on a large scale project.

One project highlight was some functionality that only showed the first time a user logged in. I had to track the login using a cookie as well as data returned by the backend. Fun stuff.

Also, this was one of the first few projects I setup to run locally using Docker. It worked out great, although I got a bit of pushback from the team because they didn’t understand it and were very hesitant to support it.

I had to stop working on the project because my team lead work became too much to handle, but I heard later that they started using docker more internally.
