Whimsical: A Time Saver?

Is it Really Whimsical?

Before we started coding — and really before we even had access to the code we were going to be working with — we used a new form of architecture for web development called Whimsical. This website is used by many different developers and other kinds of jobs to draw up ideas before getting down to work. Our team started with the general layout of the languages we would use for frontend and backend. We used text boxes and highlights in order to be able to follow along more easily and so that anyone who opened this page could understand what we were doing.

The New and Improved Merchant Marketplace

To answer the question at the top: is Whimsical a time saver — the answer is yes. I believe that it helped our team to establish what was already included in the current version and what we needed to implement to make our version work. We were able to add to the API, add more design style to the frontend, and even include a search function. Our team worked extremely well together and in the end we were able to ship a product that we can all be proud of.
