Every two weeks the Frontend Team at Fueled partake in a development challenge: a loose brief is given to the team on a Friday (with the briefs being decided by any of the team with a suitable idea), between Monday and Wednesday we build our solutions, and then on our weekly team call we each present our submission providing rationale and opening up a discussion – typically people talk about the bits they enjoyed, found tricky, and areas they’d have further elaborated on if they’d had the time.

This week we had some guest submissions from two members of the excellent Operations team at Fueled!
My goal was to create something clean and simple, yet dynamic with slight accents that would make the design a bit more fun. My favorite feature is the color transition/animation I added to the comment box. In general, I played around with different fonts and background colors and tried to find a scheme that didn’t distract from the content. I had trouble in the end with formatting and aligning the comment box, and ran out of time before I could fix it. I also had to hide the bullets/listing feature because I couldn’t figure out how to align it to the center without ruining the entire comment box. It was challenging to create something more complex without being able to modify and add to the html.
As a non-technical team member at Fueled, I was so grateful to be given a chance to be a part of this challenge and interact with the web team. This opportunity gave me a better understanding of the technical scope and challenges that our web engineers face on a daily basis. With this experience, I am more confident in vetting our technical candidates during the hiring process!
Huge thanks to the web team for letting me participate in this challenge! I had a blast a really learned a lot. Happy Pride Month! 🏳️🌈
This is a fortnightly endeavour, so stay tuned!
