The challenge

Back in 2016 the client approached us with an idea for a product with great vision and a mission: to help teachers succeed as private education professionals. It was pointed out that there is a huge community of teachers who are working two jobs just to make ends meet. By offering them a possibility to earn more in their own field, Tutor.id is definitely helping to solve the very concerning problem.

The goal was to create powerful tool for the teachers for scheduling appointments, accepting payments and automating the marketing process. The tool needed to be fast, reliable and easy to use, both for the teachers and their students.

This was our chance to make the world a better place!

The process

Together with a back-end developer and a product owner on the client side we started to work on the front-end side of the product.

We analyzed the needs and worked on figuring out the best technology stack for the situation. Although we had some previous experiences building Angular applications, we decided to go with Aurelia – blazing rendering speed and great memory efficiency with rich core capabilities. It offered us something new to learn from, too!

4 months later we had the initial version of the product completed, but it didn’t see much active use by teachers. However, this was something that the client was able to use to gather real feedback from end-users and come up with new features for upcoming releases.

The work continued for the next 9 months until it had the essentials for everyday use. From there the bird was ready to leave the nest. Today, the client has a bigger team and they are fine-tuning the product week after week.

Feedback from the client

It has been an absolute pleasure to work with gotoAndPlay. They are everything we were looking for in a collaboration: friendly, professional and fast. We are very happy with the quality of their front-end implementation, not to mention they were also willing to adopt new technologies specially for our project! We are positively impressed – totally recommend!
