    Front End development
    Published:
The Handbag Rental was handed to me by an agent at an early stage of the business but once most of the coding was actually in place.
See project online: The Handbag Rental
This project was incredibly challenging as I had never worked in CakePHP before, or any other MVC model for that matter. It really took me a while to get my head around the whole thing.
The amount of time I had was really little, and so were the resources. I didn't have access to the developer, the manager was the owner of the business and didn't know anything about digital or web based technologies, and the contact I was given pretended to be the developer, was unable to explain anything to me whatsover. So there I was, between a rock and a hard place, absolutely not knowing what software or framework to use, nor whether I would be capable of delivering, but I was utterly resolved to get it done on time. And so I did :-)
 
After getting familiar with the structure of the project, the basic concelpts of MVC, and the database implementation, I put my hands to it and managed to insert a paypal system, database communication, and restricted login. Plus a delicate crafting of the overall layout in CSS. 
I believe The Handbag Rental is now a successful business and the interface remains the same, but the database has grown much bigger in a year, which I am glad for.
