Teenager demonstrates that Formbird development is child’s play

Tom, who is interested in technology decided to spend 3 days of work experience learning and developing in Formbird. His father is an architect and Tom decided to build an app for dad. Tom’s app provides dad with a management tool to record details of his architectual / building projects.

Tom also decides that the basic data was not enough and wanted to provide for the inclusion of 3d rendering of dads projects. Using a 3rd party library he found, Tom adds that feature to Formbird by creating his own component, that was done on the last day 😉

Watch the video to see how Tom does it.
