By following agile and CI principles our cross-functional full-stack development team created a fully-functional MVP version of the platform in just 8 weeks. We also ensured the project quality by using various QA and testing techniques.
The team started with a discovery phase. They determined the project objectives, target audience, key features and main requirements and based on that created a roadmap for delivery.
To ensure a rapid feedback loop we deployed the first version of the product for beta-testing in 4 weeks after the start. Based on feedback we improved the solution with suggested enhancements and advanced functionality.
Here is an example of how we improve productivity and maximize efficiency while maintaining a high standard.
Using the Tailwind CSS library spared us from writing plenty of custom CSS code. Since the library follows a mobile-first approach, we were able to focus on business logic rather than the UI part at the same time ensuring a seamless user’s experience across all devices.
