Refactoring for WeSC

Earlier this year I made some adjustments on the server code of the website of WeSC, the Swedish apparel company.

Joint with Uli Schöberl, the Site experienced a renovation. Here’s a short list of what I did:

  • A caching-mechanism of the CakePHP Frameworks in use was supplemented by a new approach. Finer control of the cache-invalidation has been established. The automatic clearing of the caches is considerably improved.
  • Some Functions were taken together and implemented centrally. All in the spirit of DRY.
  • The import of product data was simplified. A process running in the background is launched after uploading the data. The progress can be tracked via AJAX.
  • More maintenance work was accomplished and more new features were implemented.
