Go Oil Web Site Refresh

June 8, 2019

Project Term: Winter 2019

Go Oil, a local startup that provides 24/7 on-the-spot oil changes, wanted to recreate their website as their current one was not optimized for multiple cities. BIT and BTM students worked with Go Oil to create a customer database to support their new franchising model. The students assisted in moving the current web site to an updated back-end database and updated the front end design to enable a user experience supporting multiple cities.

What our students are saying

“We went about this by creating a database that stores cities, and the regions in/around the cities on top of what they’d already have (customer information mostly). By doing this, we learned how to connect a database to the frontend using a third party (Apollo) and how to modify that database from the frontend.” – Tristan Smith
