Idea

We respect the ideas of young entrepreneurs. We assist them to transform these raw ideas into reality. Come with an idea and we will build a robust product around it. From coding to application development to payment integration to setting up of the whole backend IT infrastructure, we provide all type of services keeping in mind the challenges of startups and keeping our prices competitive. We have team of in house young and energetic developers who work with passion and share the same goal as that of entrepreneurs to build a enterprise product.

The Roadmap

For the code, our team assembles a clear roadmap. we include a set of schematics, each fulfilling a separate purpose. For individual applications, these schematics are different. Application architecture diagram, user-interface mockup, and business process model are common. Technical expertise allows us to better assess our team’s architecture and we make sure they’re on the correct path using these schematics. These schematics will be crucial even despite technical skill. When it comes to product completion, we take their help to steer productive conversations. This way we do not have to best-guess at the “percent complete” from the development team. To figure out how close the product is to completion, we track the status of each item on the diagram. And based on how quickly the team completed prior components, we project future velocity.

Meticulous Documentation

Documentation of processes is a method of scripting our team’s behavior in a way. Also, there is a wrong amount of pre-development documentation, none, but there is no right amount. We figure out what makes up a workable roadmap with our team before they sit down to code. In our development process, the first checkpoint will be to review this documentation and we make sure they’ve met this agreement.

We don’t reinvent the wheel

We make sure our team is focused on what they actually need to build. Begin by defining the key differentiators from products that already exist. Most of our team’s effort and time goes in supporting this differentiation. The schematics come in handy here. Does your application include a signup and login process? A logging component? The point is for our team to use what already exists wherever possible. Then quickly get all the scaffolding in place so we can test the product. Then iterate through and without worrying about delaying production-readiness, change anything that helps differentiate the product further.

DevOps

Now the next checkpoint is to find out what part we are planning to build from scratch once we’ve reviewed the planned architecture. Then identify the pre-built technologies we will work with and go through these with the production support group. Operations readiness will be the next checkpoint. A huge part of the secret sauce noted as DevOps is making sure the production support team is in the loop early on. DevOps is a belief wherein production operations teams and software development works together on common goals. The advantages include reliable code, quicker releases, and more time in developing because of automation. These are a result of a strong communication process. Automation is a collaborative effort.

Implementation and Testing

We work with our implementation team to come up with a process for dividing work among themselves. We use our best and young developers who want to work on all the interesting and RND work. We use our expierenced developer stick to the same kind of work they’ve done before. An equitable distribution of work is what you should strive to lead our team into. We push everyone to grow appropriately and to collaborate and share.

Iterative delivery

Typically, in an agile development process, we will divide the implementation process into several checkpoints rather than a single deadline. They are called iterations. We refer to the roadmap defined already. And ensure what we have started is at least dev-complete, before starting new components. This reduces risk and gives us an accurate picture of the speed of development. We push the code to an environment for acceptance testing as we complete the iterations. This involves test or pilot users who interact with the partial product. They test to make sure it meets design expectations and give feedback on how it could be better. But acceptance testing is not a substitute for unit testing. And we are ready to begin the release management process, once we accumulate enough tested code to make for a sufficient product release.

Code Review

So now our team is convinced the code is done and acceptance testers are sure the product is working the way it should. The next checkpoint is to validate the belief that our code is ready to become a product. Our process makes sure of this. We work with our team to come up with a process for code review which works for them. We establish a peer code review program by working across team boundaries. Using our schematics as a reference point ask them to explain how the code accomplishes the goals laid out in the schematic. By the end of the code review process, the reviewers and the developer must feel alright with being held accountable for the code. This code review is also the perfect time to review security and documentation. Security review must find a place in any code review. This generally involves looking at the code once more to identify weak areas where a hacker could gain control of the server or use it to disclose private data. Our developer can take care of this if, even if they are just running a security code analysis tool that is automated.

The last checkpoint

The code has passed the review process. It’s ready to be a product. But it still might not be ready for production. we clear the last checkpoint, deployment readiness. Our code is easy to deploy to production. This include as little manual steps as possible. And in case the code doesn’t work, we have a plan to revert to the change as planned or the rollback plan. Our operations team reviews the deployment and rollback documentation and let you know if it’s enough. We do this step ourself. But we make sure the instructions for deploying the product are clear and simple. There are very few manual steps since every manual step introduces a chance for human error. Once we have crossed this checkpoint, we push that code into production.

Post-release

We circle back and review how the process went once we are done, be it a success or failure. The testing rightly model the production scenario. Our team correctly estimate the effort required to release a product. We review how well the team performed by revisiting the implementation and testing checkpoints. We pay a visit to the operations team and gather their feedback. This builds trust between the two teams, leading to more DevOps advantages down the road.
