Visual Studio Team Services is a cloud-based file controlling repository system which provides a platform to plan better, code together and ship faster with a set of modern development services. The objective of the project was to assist users when they are unable to showcase their contributions, expertise and interests to build their social repute by embedding a social profile to aid in discussions, act as an idea board and refer people who can help.
A competitive analysis was done for insights incorporated in the conceptualization phase. A major component of the developer profile was the concept of discussions.For creating mock-ups for the developer profiles, Microsoft Fabric UI Controls guidelines for VSTS was used. A Moderated Usability Testing method was adopted to obtain feedback from live users. Arijit also learnt about experience design, enterprise software, product coordination and design teams to deliver under deadlines, working in a live project and designing for the web.
