Project Description

Kaplan International, wanted a mobile-enabled English language proficiency assessment system. After initial scoping of the project it was determined that 2 senior back-end developers (Jedrzej and Piotr), 2 senior front-end developers (Wojtek and Slawek), 1 designer (Carlos), and 1 QA (Anna) would be needed and would integrate with their in-­house team. The Kaplan team consisted of the Product Owner (Danielle), Lead Developer (Wathsi) , 1 front-end developer (Jody), and 1 DevOps Engineer (Byron). X­-Team and the Kaplan team worked remotely utilizing Slack and Skype as the main modes of communication. Jira and Scrum methodology were used to manage the workflow and sprints.
