DEVgrad2020: E-Commerce Site

E-commerce Site | FDS Distributors | Case Study

Trex Fencing - FDS Fence Distributors has a vision for his own business to try to develop a new way to sell and promote their products. For the same reason, they decided to hire two developers that can handle this project. One of the developers of this site was me.

To start working on this project, I started to analyze their business and all the projects that they have in every single department to start looking into different rules and tools that I can use. Also, I needed to understand what type of tools will be ok for me to use since they will be managing their side by themselves.

For this reason, I decided to start working with the programming language called PHP, then I decided to use Wordpress to allow people to make changes internally. Plus, I decided to mix these tools with woocommerce to be able to use the API’s from Wordpress and Woocomercce and to be able to add, edit, delete any products from the store. At the same time, I used Plugins that currently have Open API to make sure we can run scripts to adjust materials and to make sure we can change any data like the Front-End from the main pages.

Style Guides will be here:

Link to the Website:

How I built it (what's the stack? did I run into issues or discover something new along the way?)

HTML, CSS, Javascript, SQL, PHP, Woocommerce, WordPress.

Additional Thoughts / Feelings / Stories

This project was really fun to make and I was able to learn a new programming language (PHP) and I found out that an E-commerce site is not an easy thing to do.

Congratulations to every 2020 Graduate!
