Startup

I'm building a startup

Thanks to Startups, we have the opportunity to work on new and exciting ideas. We love challenges like any entrepreneur who decides to create a Startup. Thanks to our experience in many projects and the development of our own IT projects, we bring such values as the stabilization and development of the project over a long period of time.

Challenges

What challenge are you facing?

The launch of a new technological solution on the market is always subject to risk and a lot of uncertainty. What challenge do you face?

My application is already on the market. What factors determine that it is developed over a long period of time?

Three key factors determine whether your application is expandable over a long period of time.

First of all, the right application architecture. You should always remember that the application should be testable and that it should be divided into testable components.

Secondly, the application should have detailed documentation that would allow for a quick takeover of the project by another developer who was not involved in the project before.

Thirdly - product development. The key is proper synchronization of work between the developer team and people who are responsible for the long-term development of the product. It is important that each party understands the division into individual versions of the application, knows the dates of delivering the elements and knows how to effectively maintain the project. If you take care of these three elements, you can be sure that your application will be developed over a long period of time.

Modern software development methodologies that we use when implementing projects will be useful:

BDD (Behavior Driven Development) - a methodology that avoids problems related to poor understanding of requirements by individual team members. Thanks to BDD, from the moment of collecting the requirements and documenting them with examples, all the people involved, both on the Leaware side and on the client's side, understand the challenges that we have to face in exactly the same way. It is also important that the collected requirements become also acceptance criteria, which helps in measuring the quality of the delivered project and the degree of its implementation.

DDD (Domain Driven Design) - a methodology that allows you to create a solution architecture in such a way that it is simultaneously related to its implementation. Thanks to this, along with the development of the product, we do not lose control over its architecture, which can be constantly adapted to the changing needs of the client.

TDD (Test Driven Development) - a methodology that, in combination with BDD and DDD, allows for continuous testing of the solution being created and minimizing risks associated with regressions, as well as architectural changes.

My startup needs the most modern technologies. I need experienced developers.

You've come to the right place! We have extensive experience in working with Startups, so far we have implemented over 15 startup projects!

We make sure that even the smallest design that comes out from under the wings of Leaware stands out with the highest possible quality. At work, we focus on the best methodologies and practices that guarantee a constant high level of services we provide. The basis for Leaware's activities are:

We understand the needs of Startups very well because we implement Startup projects ourselves. Our experience allows us to manage projects extremely effectively.

My product is already on the market. I want to develop it and scale it, but I do not have the resources.

We have extensive knowledge in the field of Startup project management. Our team includes many certified specialists with extensive experience in working on such projects. We know how to efficiently develop your budget and systematically develop the project over a long period of time.

What to do, to not have to rewrite the application after one year - which is very common among Startups?

The most common mistake in the case of a startup is the choice of a technology that is not scalable in the long run. This results in the necessity of rewriting the application in a different technology at the moment when it is necessary to introduce modifications or extend the first version of the product with new functionalities. Another reason for the need to rewrite the application from the beginning is the lack of perspective thinking, which results from little experience. The application architecture is the key here - from the very beginning it can be designed so that the project is divided into appropriate components, which later can be easily developed and scaled. Very often, the startup projects forget about it, although it does not affect the price of the work.

At the stage of gathering requirements and creating the architecture of the solution, we use modern software development methodologies, thanks to which you will not have to rewrite the application from scratch:

BDD (Behavior Driven Development) - a methodology that avoids problems related to poor understanding of requirements by individual team members. Thanks to BDD, from the moment of collecting the requirements and documenting them with examples, all the people involved, both on the Leaware side and on the client's side, understand the challenges that we have to face in exactly the same way.

We have extensive experience in creating and developing startup projects. We are happy to share our knowledge and experience with you.

I need technical support to develop my product. I do not know whether to choose a software house or hire a freelancer.

It all depends on the resources you currently own and the size of your product needs. If you have adequate business knowledge and technological facilities and you lack work hands, you can choose an experienced freelance who will fill this emptiness. If, however, you lack the knowledge and resources, it is worth using a software house in which many experienced specialists work. This choice guarantees you the support of a whole team of professionals with experience in working with the client and the knowledge and skills you need. Thanks to this, you can count on comprehensive support and service in the event of various difficulties that you will encounter by developing your product. In addition, the software house will ensure that the project will be long-term development and will also take care of the relevant documentation. In a situation when one of the developers leaves the project, it is much easier to replace him with another specialist representing the softwarehouse than to find a freelancer who will take over the project after his predecessor.
