March 2019 - MVP Design Finalised & Infrastructure / Platform Work

March updates:

  • Formed a technical advisory group with developers in industry

  • Decided to build the core platform on a MERN Stack (MongoDB, Express.js, React.js, Node.js)

  • Successfully gotten the platform backend onto AWS and serving content up. We’re now in the process of building out the UI and the rest of the functionality so that we can begin trials.

  • First volunteer contributor commit

  • Onboarded new volunteers to the platform

  • User interviews with volunteers and teachers to see what blocks them from volunteering

  • Usability testing on most of the onboarding and setup processes - these tests inform how to improve voluntarily going forward and how to make the service better for users.
