The agile development cycle prescribes specific meetings that help coordinate and add a system to the development process. By structuring the meetings in the following way, the whole team has complete transparency into the development cycle at any given time. We have found, as the industry has, that the agile development cycle is much more effective at delivering on time, on budget, and on specification. As has been already covered in this series, waterfall fails to deliver what agile can.Read More
It can be daunting to undertake development as a business that doesn’t have or know any coders and other development experts. A common mistake made is to get a bunch of quotes and get the app they want developed. This makes sense, but according to Gartner, it is going to fail because “agile development is essential for mobile app development”.Read More
You're watching television one night and you see a commercial.

Users have many request for features, so do your team members and there are always those pesky bugs that pop up from time to time due to 3rd parties updating their requirements. This leads to a long list of requirements that need to be implemented, but to do that in code, you’d end up with an ever elongating list of features that are taking longer and longer to complete. This will obviously frustrate users that already have very short attention spans.Read More
All of the Agile ceremonies, or their equivalents, are indispensable to getting a release out the door. But if someone forced me to choose which ceremony is the most magical, I would have to pick the Sprint Commitment.Read More
There are different methods to actually code every given piece of functionality, which leads to great variability in app quotes you may have seen.
We utilize Feature-Driven Development.
In practice, this means we start with the Visual Prototype stage of development and then code the backend – the larger portion of work – once those visuals are confirmed. This leads to less chance of mismatch in expectations.Read More
