My recommended next steps would be:
Design for mobile and tablet breakpoints and make sure site is fully responsive. We only had time to design for desktop prior to submission deadline.
Implement SEO and improve strategic keyword placement.
Throughout our involvement in the hackathon, our newly assembled team, brought together specifically for this event, encountered a significant challenge. Despite having a designated Project Manager (PM) in place, it became increasingly apparent that team members were frequently taking on roles that extended beyond their initial assignments. This led to a notable degree of frustration, confusion, and instances of duplicated effort. Consequently, as the project progressed, only the PM and I remained committed until its successful completion.
This experience served as a poignant reminder of the critical significance associated with defining clear roles and establishing firm boundaries within a team. By doing so, we can effectively mitigate unintentional overlaps and conflicts, ensuring that team members work together harmoniously and efficiently towards shared objectives.
