In parallel with the wide spreading of the Internet, more and more users access it through their various appliances. Thus, an enterprise that fails to keep up with the development of the digital world, and does not utilize the opportunities created by the spreading of the Internet, may lose potential customers. An ergonomic web application, that provides the user with access to certain services of the enterprise through their mobile appliances, could largely increase the company’s income.
The application described in my thesis attempts to offer solutions for my parents’ small enterprise, keeping in mind the current trends from the technology and design aspects. The application was developed within the framework of the ASP.NET Core 2.0, which, due to its flexibility, I could complement with several other technologies. Such is for example Bootstrap, which provided a responsive, unified appearance, or FullCalendar, which I used to create calendar functions needed specifically for the rent service of the company, as well as to design the Calendar itself.
My thesis introduces this program in three main chapters. In the first chapter, the technologies used for this web application are explained. In the second chapter, the planning phase is described, and the required specifications are finalized. In the third chapter I introduce the web application that I developed.
The final product has been piloted in a testing environment, where it met expectations. However, it was not tested in live as it does not yet meet the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements. However, through this exercise I have acquired a basic web developer knowledge that will help me decide if I may want to work in this area after graduation.
