A Developer Creates Real-Time Alerts for Reaction Commerce

Upon joining Works, developers embark on a three-month journey of “Simulations” — a department dedicated to replicating real open-source projects. This provides an invaluable opportunity for the Learning team to equip new developers with the necessary technical and soft skills to effectively collaborate with international software development teams.

The Simulation phase of the program has been designed to provide Works Developers with a realistic experience of working in an agile team environment. By replicating actual software projects, the Learning team can create a learning environment that is both authentic and adaptive to meet the needs of the program. This enables Works Developers to build genuine software applications while gaining an understanding of the dynamics of working in a simulated business setting.

Kolawole Alade, a Works Developer, was assigned the task of duplicating a project from Reaction Commerce, a renowned open-source e-commerce platform written in JavaScript and hosted on GitHub. His work was of such an outstanding calibre that his Simulations Facilitator advocated for his code to be incorporated into the primary development branch.

Due to Kolawole’s unwavering commitment to the project, Reaction was able to successfully incorporate pop-up alerts into its admin panel. Now, whenever a customer places an order, both the shop owner and the customer receive a notification on the dashboard. Furthermore, shop owners are provided with the option of sending and customizing SMS alerts.

Kolawole identified that the most challenging aspect of developing the notifications feature was creating a notification system that was flexible enough to enable both store owners and guest users to receive swift responses upon submitting their order.

Reaction recently published a post to express their gratitude for Kolawole, who was instrumental in creating their website. However, it is important to acknowledge that they could not have completed the project without the help of numerous developers, including Joshua Azemoh from Works.

Kolawole was drawn to this initiative due to the well-structured code-base, which made development straightforward, as well as the opportunity to help the 3,000+ consumers who relied on the program. He found the prospect of assisting such a large number of individuals highly appealing.

Kolawole’s work with the Simulations Program at Works has provided a great demonstration of how well-equipped our developers are for roles in real-world teams. He has expressed a desire to further his contributions to Reaction by adding to the digital items section. This statement indicates his enthusiasm for making a lasting impact and I am looking forward to seeing the many more features he will bring to the table.
