I am back!
It’s been a busy couple of months Spree.co.za merged into Superbalist.com SO I have not had much free time to write.
The merger was intense to say the least, but it was great fun working closely with my colleagues over those weeks.
We migrated tons of users and addresses and products (sorry cannot be specific private data) into Superbalist systems and warehouse. Every team and department had their work cut out for them. It could seem overwhelming at times if you let it be.
I was responsible for building out the front-ends of new iteration of the login flows. This included the login modal and the sign up walls. The new designs and layouts look amazing. The designers did an awesome job.
Many of us pulled weekends and late nights to get the job done on time. I loved this time. I really enjoyed the comradely that came out of the teams when the going got tough, leadership hung back with us while we coded late into the night or over a weekend.
I have never been through anything like this before, It was an amazing learning experience, one that I will cherish for sure.
