Project idea

The main idea of the project is to build a truthful community of the restaurants, cafes, supermarkets and other public caters that have a “halal food” status. In other words, it is the marketplace of businesses that provide food, permissible in traditional Islamic law.


Software development company: Case study


Our client turned to us with the need to update, optimize and extend the functionality of an existing food marketplace platform. Refactoring is an important and effective activity to optimize the source code in a well manner. It makes a code easier to understand and improves the quality and app’s architecture. The complexity of this project has been reduced after applying the refactoring and improving the quality of the food service marketplace product. By means of optimization we reduced the maintenance cost because the complexity of software has been decreased, though the core functionality has been significantly extended.
