Taking Over an Existing Codebase
Our broad experience working in projects from a wide range of areas gives us the skills to undertake an existing codebase and extend it as if it had been written by us.
As a first step, we need to fully assess your current product and the technology behind it. Together with your team we will gather as much information as possible about the product you already have and we’ll guide you in the process of setting new short and long-term goals for your project.
Once the roadmap is in place, we can start working on an initial estimate. We also know how important it is to protect your information nowadays. That’s why we’re open to signing any NDAs you might find necessary from the very beginning of our business relationship.
With all the technical and non-technical specifications in place, we’re ready to estimate how long it will take to scale your project. We work incrementally, which means that we split the work into smaller parts that can be more easily estimated. For this purpose, we use the Planning Poker technique which has proven to be very precise within experienced, cross-functional teams like ours.
And up to this point you haven’t spent a penny yet!
At this point, we can proceed to formalize our business relationship through a very simple contract. In case of fixed price projects, it will state the hours of work required to complete the project as well as the total cost and a previously agreed payment schedule. In case of hourly projects, it will state the agreed hourly rate.
Once the agreement is digitally signed by both parts, we’re ready to move on to the next step and select the developers that best fit the product technical requirements.
Our highly versatile team is our best resource and has proven to adapt to many different projects. Since Transparency is one of our pillars, you will be free to access our developer’s profiles and résumés at any time. We are constantly working on making things crystal clear for you and your team!
Now we’re ready to start building your product! We usually run a Scrum development process. All of our programmers have a comprhensive experience working with Scrum and we’d love to introduce your product team to this agile methodology.
Our work will be iterative and incremental, meaning that we’ll build the new features gradually and focusing on specific tasks at a time.
With this methodology, working software parts will be made available for your team to test early on.
Once all the requested features are implemented, we can move on to a maintenance phase which involves making any needed changes to improve the product’s performance and correct problems. We don’t settle for anything else than the best and we will constantly fine-tune your features, ensuring your product continues to gain user traction.
