North American Concrete App

A project management web app created for North American Concrete to help organize work flow and communication within the company.

One of the challenges faced was selecting the best database access layer for the real time chat service.

This approach made a fast, reliable, and reactive chat service.

A framework created with the purpose of being able to quickly build multiple custom apps on a platform that shares data and structure for an organization so they are specific to their needs.

The apps created on this Framework include; Automated Inventory Tracker, Vacation Tracker, CRM, and a Shop Scheduler.

One of the biggest challenges I had to overcome while designing and implementing Thermite was working with an immature framework's (.Net Core 1 & ASP.NET Core 1) with limited documentation and few working examples. To overcome this, I learnt how ASP.NET Core worked, and how to implement features by looking over its source code and following execution paths.
