Mastercard: Her Ideas

I was lead developer on this 2 developer project.  It was problematic from start to finish.

  • Two weeks to get it done
  • Ever changing design specs delivered by the client almost daily.
  • The designer had never worked on websites before, and it showed.
  • Assets where not in usable formats and had to be modified in-house due to time constrants.
  • Changing functionality specs.
  • Had to run on the client's Rackspace server
  • The security login to access the server stoped working 2 days to delivery.  To regain access, a jury riggged solution involving another, non developer, machine and a USB drive was devised.
  • The client's secuirity testing, never told us what they did to cause an error, just that there was one on a specific page.

Nights and weekends where worked.  Multilingual ability was asked for, built into the system, then never used.  Despite all that, in the end, we delivered it on-time and to spec.

After the site launched, we then hooked it into Mastercard's GDPR compliance API.

Also, when the site first launched, there was an another page where a user could nominate someone to appear in the list of lightbulbs.  That has since been turned off.
