 Challenge

We were tasked with the challenge of establishing a practical design, that included both front-end development, and functionality that would meet the businesses objectives, i.e seamless information browsing, and analysis.

 Solution

The team at HQSoftware decided to give special attention to the design, as the customer required it to present complex, and substantial information that would be user-friendly. This project also included extensive front-end development, such as creating semantic, modular code using HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript. Our team also created a “high performance” page which would generate, and display over 15 meteo parameters, for selected locations, as well as allowing the user to request further analytics. 

Some of the main priorities were: 

  • Creating rich, and interactive content with the help of JavaScript frameworks
  • Integration with server-side code to produce dynamic pages
  • Generating pure client-side javascript charts with the help of jqPlot - jQuery plugin
  • Improving the speed at which the site loaded, by using automatic creation of CSS sprites using Sass and dynamic stylesheet language LESS

 Our front-end development mostly covered:

  • Performance optimisation using YSlow and PageSpeed
  • Revision of designs to improve site user-friendliness
  • Development of cross-browser and cross-platform compatible solutions.
  • Testing and debugging
  • Adherence to SEO best practices (title, description, keywords, etc)
  • W3C code validation

The portal that our team at HQSoftware created is now a global IT solution that improves business efficiency and safety, allowing those interested in meteo data to make better decisions.
