How web-app are built? In reality, start with a bright idea, build a prototype, build the real thing, conduct internal developer testing, QAT(quality assurance test)/limited beta –> really works in production. Webpage is slow because the size of the webpage is too huge.

However, I would think that it is not that ethical, so I guess it’ll be a little secret shared between my group mates and I. Still, there is a bigger sense of satisfaction if we had built our own website from scratch.
