Ministry of Sound

Ministry of Sound Group is a multimedia entertainment business based in London with a nightclub, worldwide events operation, music publishing business. The website allows users to find all the latest news, videos and music direct from Ministry of Sound HQ as well as to buy the tickets for the different music events.
The purpose of the project was to create the eCommerce part of this website. We have integrated a Satchmo Django plugin into the existing platform. The project itself was built without any kind of eCommerce functionality, so that was quite challenging.

Requirements

  • Legacy code. The project is old and many developers worked on it.
  • Custom requirements. The Satchmo framework we used didn't fit perfectly to the project requirements and we had to customize it. It was quite difficult and required a deep understanding of the framework.
  • Timing. Our team had limited resources and time-frames to fulfill the requirements.
  • Communication. The client location was Australia which is 7 hours ahead of Ukraine (where our team is located). However, we were able to manage the time zone difference by scheduling regular meetings.

Technologies

Here is the main technologies we used on the project.

  • Python
  • Django
  • Celery
  • Satchmo Framework
  • PostgreSQL
  • RabbitMQ
