Introducing Project KnowAmmo
KnowAmmo is a purpose-built crowdsourced network that embraces individual members who wish to know about geographically proximate opportunities to purchase rifle and pistol ammunition. The platform allows users to post listings for ammunition they have for sale, as well as to search for listings in their area.
The Challenge / Requirement
The client, a firearms enthusiast, was facing issues while finding the best ammo. He wanted to have an app where he could sell and purchase ammo, and also find out about ammo that was available in his area.
Intelligenes developed a custom software solution for the client that met his specific needs. The solution comprises a React J front-end application that integrates with an Asp .Net Core application at the backend. The solution also comprises an SQL database for storing relevant data.
The platform architecture was designed to support additional features in the future. The database design was designed to maintain records of all ammo listings, as well as user activity. The API specifications were designed to standardize data exchange between web services.
DevOps-related activities were performed to maintain the smooth delivery of product increments at the end of each sprint. DevOps activities included source control management, continuous deployment, and continuous integration.
The KnowAmmo platform was successfully launched and has been well-received by users. The platform has helped users to find ammo that they need, and it has also helped sellers to connect with buyers.
