Pipelinepharma website development on python Django
Stack change form react + nextjs to python Django success story
Pre - history
Being contacted by creators of largest B2B pharmaceuticals marketplace presented with the unique challenge, which was more than happy to take.
As many of fast growing businesses these days, client had lots of challenges. Mos notable ones were:
Switch to python Django
After failed attempts to stabilize and improve situation on existing web stack, decision was made to change stact to python Django.
This took nearly 4 months to release, and first working MVP. Results were quite good - page speed insights reported all metrics 90+.
Stability and transparency
Together with new stack we implemented alerting and monitoring based on loki, prometheus and grafana. This allowed us to know exactly what went wring where, and quickly fix it, allso, measure operation times and assure that 99% of client requests would be processed under 250 ms.
0 downtime automated deployments
With new release we allso conteinerized entire stack, allowing to deploy and scale entire solution. Deployments got automated, so that on merging code changes, workflow would deploy new version of the code with 0 downtime of actual platform in under 3 minutes. Test would be ran, and security checks ensuring that staging testing and tests ran sucsessfuly are in place, ensuring high stability of production environments.
On each release to production, main stake holders receives slack messages on what was changed, allso corespojnding Jira tickets gets updatd, allowing further actions to moneterize newly added features.
12 Releases a day
Having proper stack and good workflows allowed client to have 12 releases a day done on averagre, unlocking new experimenting potential matched with great speed of solutions production.
Thanks to chosen tech and solution architecture, all visual elements became components, and got reused in entire platform, allowing rapid releases, and uniform look and feel all over the workflow
In order to improve user funnels, we implemented cookie-less back end reporting system, allowing 100% precision, full complience to GDPR and still ability to understand exactly how users interact with a system, and which advert chanels works best.
Despite being intense and hard experience, Pipelinepharma was allso most revarding one. +30% of organic trafic increase, new 100% seo scoring platform with A+ security headers stands as a proof of that.
