  3. Achieve Cross-Browser Compatibility: The website should function flawlessly and look consistent in all major web browsers.

  4. Optimize for Performance: Aim for quick loading times by optimizing images, minimizing script and stylesheet usage, and following other performance best practices.

  5. Maintain High Code Quality: Your code should be clean, well-commented, and follow industry standards for maintainability and scalability.

  6. Conduct Comprehensive Testing: You're responsible for extensive testing and addressing any issues discovered.

  7. Stay in Constant Communication: Keep us updated on your progress via Slack regularly.
