Many app developers waste time trying to code their way out of integration problems when they could be spending this energy creating better app features. Hiring a specialized developer to clean up code and take care of the integration creates immediate and long-term good ROI.
Here’s my case study on building a Shopify platform for ShopStorm, a Shopify app company. This platform serves as the foundation for their existing apps as well as any new apps they create.
After all of the changes and upgrades, the new and improved app was 54% smaller than the original size with a 590% increase in the test suite size
The Jilt cart abandonment app had a pretty big fan club when ShopStorm acquired it. While it was still functional, it was ready for a huge upgrade on several levels. Here’s what I did to make sure it reached its useful, income-producing, heavyweight potential.
Here’s my case study on re-building Jilt from the ground up for ShopStorm, a Shopify app company.
Jilt has recovered over $12,000,000 in lost revenue in its few years of existence.
Shopify manages your e-commerce sales like a champ. Drip makes email campaigns a breeze. Merging the two for seamless sales funnels can create some pretty ugly hacks, so I built a custom app to smooth out a few rough spots.
Here’s my case study on building a Shopify app called Dripify from scratch in only a week that makes integrating two services just a matter of clicking a few buttons. No hunting for code, and no burning time trying to make your sales process fit an unforgiving template.
A/B testing is a major part of conversion optimization. But not every system supports it so A/B test data has to be collected and checked manually. This A/B split test calculator was developed for that.
Conversion optimization relies heavily on A/B tests. The faster A/B tests can run, the faster the optimizations, and the more benefit to the organization. This leads to running multiple A/B tests across different platforms.
Unfortunately not every platform includes A/B testing support so they need to be run and calculated manually. The existing A/B split testing calculators suffer from usability problems which made the confidence calculations slow.
This tool fixes many of those usability problems and makes checking A/B results a breeze.
Clear labels for the Control and Experiment
Raw values used instead of conversion rates, which are commonly rounded
Live calculations that happen as the values are entered, providing super fast results
kindle.rb is a collection of classes and scripts that can be used to manage a kindle notes file.
Highlighting and taking notes on a Kindle is very easy but it can be difficult to review the notes later. All Kindles store highlights and notes in a specially formatted file. kindle.rb is designed to read that file and convert the notes into other formats.
Redmine Moonshine is a plugin for Moonshine to configure and setup Redmine on a bare bones server.
Setting up Ruby on Rails and Redmine on a server can be complex and difficult to maintain without experience and documentation. This plugin enhances Moonshine to automate the process of setting up, configuring, and maintaining a server for Redmine. It also supports ChiliProject.
The Questions plugin will improve the workflow of Redmine by allowing users to ask questions directly to other users in issue notes. Questions will be highlighted so they can be found easily and prevent communications from failing.
On larger projects it was easy to miss questions from team members, which would contribute to blocking other people’s work and ultimately stalling the project. The Questions plugin resolves this by allowing a team member to flag an issue update as a question for a specific person. This makes the question more visible to the team and lets someone search for all open questions on a project.
