Unit 7 - API Ideas

  • Public
By Hassan Jasim in the group COMP 266 August 25, 2022 - 4:54pm

In this document I have focused on quality of the code over quantity, I have only implemented features that are useful to the personas I created in unit 1 and haven’t implemented gimmicky features that don’t serve the personas any use.

 

SendGrid API

This will be the service that I use to send an email to myself and the persona who submits the form on the contact us page. I will attempt to send 2 emails, one to me and a confirmation email to the user who submits the form. This will give them a sense of security that their request was received, and we are reviewing it.

Google Maps API

            This feature is key when the user is on the contact us page. It will give all the personas a sense of where we are located in the world. This will help them understand what it will look like to go into business with us if they live in a different time zone.
