Tech Stack Breakdown


Google Cloud






At Northern Devs, we built a robust system for the Stormflow Surfacing project using a carefully selected tech stack. The foundation of our development was built upon React.js, a versatile JavaScript framework. We harnessed the power of React.js to create a visually stunning and highly responsive user interface, leveraging TypeScript, CSS, and styled components. This combination allowed us to deliver an intuitive web app experience for installers. Additionally, we seamlessly integrated Outgrow, using its capabilities to implement custom calculators for accurate material estimation and cost calculation.

On the backend, we used Node.js serverless functions to handle dynamic server-side logic efficiently. This approach ensured optimal scalability and performance while maintaining seamless functionality. To manage data effectively, we implemented a NoSQL database, optimizing data storage and retrieval for enhanced reliability and speed.

To prioritize security and user management, we developed a robust user authentication and user permissions system. This system provided authorized installers with secure access to the web app, granting appropriate permissions based on their roles and responsibilities within the Stormflow Surfacing ecosystem. By carefully selecting and combining these technologies, we created a powerful and cohesive tech stack that delivered a seamless user experience, enhanced functionality, and ensured the highest standards of security

Our Strategy

Our strategy at Northern Devs was centered around a comprehensive approach to successfully deliver the Stormflow Surfacing web app. We began by conducting a thorough feasibility analysis to ensure that a web app solution was the best fit for the project. This allowed us to provide valuable guidance to Stormflow Surfacing on the possibilities and benefits of a web app in addressing their needs. With a clear scope outlined, we proceeded with the development phase, collaborating closely with the client to gather feedback and make any necessary changes along the way. Our emphasis on clear communication and transparency ensured that the project progressed smoothly and aligned with Stormflow Surfacing's vision.

Throughout the development process, we used Basecamp as our project management tool, enabling effective organization and tracking of deliverables and milestones. By leveraging this platform, we fostered seamless collaboration between our team and Stormflow Surfacing, ensuring clear communication and efficient progress updates. We followed an iterative approach, presenting suggested mockups and designs to gather valuable feedback from the client. This allowed us to refine the web app's user interface and functionalities, creating an optimal user experience for Stormflow Surfacing's installers. Through careful planning, open communication, and a commitment to excellence, we successfully pulled the project together, delivering a high-quality web app that met and exceeded Stormflow Surfacing's expectations.
