TUIJune 2016 - November 2016

Creating web based components for Specialist Holidays, Citalia and Hayes & Jarvis brands. Hands on development within Hybris CMS(5.7) store and web based files i.e impex templates and use of hmc/hac web based application. Basic JSP, SASS and jQuery was used on a daily basis to add new features and bug fixing. JSP was used to create model views (tags) along with the dynamic elements that linked to data-sources, along with SASS functions and mixins to maintain a level of reusable clean code. Debugging of Hybris via intelliJIDEA, console logs and local server outputs to terminal window.To keep up with my knowledge base of Hybris platform and architecture I also registered with https://wiki.hybris.com/dashboard.action and regularly visited http://stackoverflow.com/ for further issues encountered. A peer review process was in place prior to GIT merge-requests into development branch, prior to testing and live release.
