How we get things done
Project and website development cycles
Your website or app will look elegant, clean, and effortless. But the process of building it is quite complex. Our polished final products are the culmination of several in-depth stages. That requires precise execution and attention to detail.
Not only do these projects involve intricate programming and artful design, but they also require an open line of communication with our client. Therefore communication is critical to guide the project’s vision and clarify program requirements.
As our client, you’ll be able to add your input through every stage of development, directing the constant improvement of your product.
Find out more about each stage
To craft the perfect site or app for your needs, we begin by learning your business, your goals, and your users inside and out. Together, we’ll determine in detail what is your needs. And how your needs might evolve in the future. So, basically each project starts with Business research&planning. At this stage, our IT House experts can also provide advice and insight into achieving your business goals with innovative solutions. When we’ve set priorities, plans are mapped out – and we get to work.
Once we understand your vision and goals, we move to the next steps: creating an information architecture, after that visual design and theme customization, and finally to programming.
Once we understand your goals, we’ll whip up a functional wireframe for you to review. Think of it as an interactive blueprint for your project.
You’ll get a sense of the aesthetics and usability early on, with the opportunity to comment, critique, and shape the look and feel of your project from the very start.
Now that we’ve got the skeletal frame of your project, we’ll start filling it in with color, character, and intuitive functionality. Your project begins to take on a life of its own, as we work in close collaboration with you. We are ensuring that the project perfectly balances pleasant user experience with your articulated business goals.
With the main design now in place, we’ll start crafting the individual elements of your site or app. We’ll slice our designs from PSD to CSS and HTML, building a beautiful website.
The heavy-duty developing begins here – we comply with the latest and greatest digital standards. So your project works well across all platforms today and for years to come.
Finally, we get to work fine-tuning the backend functionality. We can program in several languages and frameworks, including PHP, C++, Python, Symphony, Drupal, and Microsoft Studio. But for efficiency and flexibility, we specialize in and recommend Ruby on Rails.
We field your input several times throughout the process, and in the end, deliver a polished product ready to launch.
Why Agile Development?
The most important reason why we use Agile development – we believe in agile! It is because it allows us to work closely with you, ensuring the project always aligns with your business goals.
When you’re happy, we’re delighted!
Traditional software development typically features long “sprints” – periods when the programming is still in progress and unstable. This process is somewhat rigid. And making adjustments in mid-sprint can be extremely time-consuming and inefficient. Usually, it also means that clients are not able to check in on the progress until the work is done.
Agile development is fundamentally different. It bases around a series rapid of sprints that provides the client several opportunities to test the product, give feedback, and recommend changes.
And the result of the development process: a fine-tuned final product that achieves your business goals and works as you imagined.
Faster production times, frequent low-risk sprints and responsive flexibility
To provide you with a well-crafted site or app at the best value, the IT House uses agile development methods. Agile development is used to manage our projects and build websites and applications from the ground up.
Taking full advantage of these cutting-edge practices, we employ a blend of two agile methodologies: Scrum and eXtreme Programming.
