Process Followed

Agile methodology was followed using Atlassian tools such as JIRA and Bitbucket for collaboration. Sprint tasks were logged into JIRA, tasks were further explained through requirements that were gathered through collaboration, and estimates were logged into the tool after which the development was taken up.

The challenge was that there was no development server was available to the team and hence the testing was restricted to unit testing and the integrated testing was only done by the customer.
