world of web development is still
very misunderstood. We've even heard people refer to it as the "dark
art". So when you need help turning your ideas and designs into a
high-quality website or web application, how do you know who you can trust to
get it done?
The purpose of this post is to provide some important points on how to make a good web development company and will help you understand the questions asked from development companies. There are an enormous number of web development companies available all over the world; however, not all the companies offer you outstanding service.
As a result, Website Designing is going to provide you with some tips & Characteristics of Great Web Development Companies such as:
Excellent development skills: When you are looking for a web development company, look for a company that has a team of highly skilled developers. Everyone should be a remarkable specialist, not a jack-of-all-trades. You can also approach a company and ask about the team's capabilities, what types of projects they've worked on before, and what skills they have and are best at. You should always have a highly skilled team working on the project, devoting all the necessary energy to meet all the quality requirements and providing training to the employees about state-of-the-art technologies. Developers must have worked extensively on multiple high-quality products and have a proven track record of successful projects.
Time range: Every project has a deadline or a time limit within which it has to be completed. Strategies, strategies and tools for controlling delivery processes are key features of effective project management. The development company needs the ability to create a time frame that meets the needs and expectations of the client once the project is delivered and in use. The team of developers should be able to make changes to the product being developed, even relatively late in development, without being too disruptive. Project managers successfully initiate, plan, execute, and control the development process to achieve goals and meet project success criteria.
Able to do both front-end and back-end development: We do not subscribe to the idea of developers who do front-end development and developers who do back-end development. This is the equivalent of having a plumber who only fits pipes and leaves the fitting of baths, showers, sinks and toilets to someone else.
We agree that there is a separation between web developers and web designers, there is a completely different thought process going on, but the separation between front-end and back-end is absolutely wrong. To be a good web developer, you need to be able to understand the full development cycle and be involved in a project from start to finish. There's also a lot to be learned from working with different technologies, but we'll come to that.
Don't specialize in one back-end technology: There are many good back-end technologies that are well suited for web development, including Ruby on Rails, ASP.Net, and PHP (and others). They all have their own strengths and weaknesses and none are perfect. A good web development company should be flexible in the technologies they use so that they can use the one best suited to the needs of their clients.
The main reason we've spent time learning the many techniques is so we can pick and choose the bits we like. Over the years the developers involved in the league have been able to take the good parts of each technology and craft several best practices and use them across all platforms.
Understanding of advertising strategies surrounding the projects: We've heard the complaint many times that web developers don't meditate about the marketing strategy of a venture. It's generally because the developers don't care. Well they should. How can they advise clients and go about helping clients find the right solution if they aren't thinking about the "big picture" (sorry, we know that's a terrible phrase), shall we wash our mouths now)? If a developer works blindly, they are not providing a service to the customer; they are just being a puppet.
The most important question a developer can ask is "Why?” Take the time to fully understand the client's requirements, and advise them, after all, the client doesn't understand the specifics of web development, you understand. Make the development cycle a two-way dialogue.
Invests time in research and development: As everyone knows that the web industry is a very fast growing industry. Possessions come and go in the flicker of an eye. A good web development company gives its developers an allotted amount of time each week to keep up with new trends and technologies. Granted, some of these trends and technologies are dead-ends, but you won't know until you look at them.
If you want to know if a web development business knows their stuff, just ask them what their developers have been looking at recently. You don't need to realize everything they're told, however, make note of them and look them up on the Internet to see if the firm is seeing new trends.
R&D is probably the most important time every week for a developer. If developers don't evolve, the solutions they build will become stagnant and out of date very quickly. As a client do you want a legacy solution before you even start?
Flexible to change: We've all heard developers complaining about how their clients change project requirements in the middle of a project. Developers need to stop complaining about it, it happens to all of us and it's never going to change. A good web development company should have processes in place to deal with change. If you're a customer, ask how change requests will be handled.
Web developers must work on tiny release cycles, sooner 1 - 2 weeks. The worst thing that can happen to a project is that the developers get the brief, work starts, and then 2 months later they announce that it's finished, only for the client to say "it's over". That's not what I asked for!” By working on short release cycles, customers can be involved at all stages. At the finale of each release, the customer should review the project so far and submit any change requests.
Use source control: Our final recommendation is pretty obvious and simple for most people, but we still talk to developers who don't use any kind of source control. This seems to be more prevalent with freelancers as they don't see the need as they are only working on code. If they look at it that way, they're missing the point.
There are many reasons why all code should be source controlled. We are going to mention only a few key points here. First of all it is a great way to keep a log of changes made to the code. (as long as the developers comment in the commit). Secondly and most importantly, it allows developers to change the code without the fear of losing the work they have already done. This is exclusively useful when trying out other possible coding solutions to a delinquent.
