Bootstrapping software projects is hard
don't take unnecessary risks
hire an expert!
This is my process for getting a software project from idea to production!
An estimate should help you adjust your expectations, your budget, and help you decide whether to go ahead with the project or not.
This step consists of defining the scope of the project and defining an initial execution plan. After reviewing the requirements and arranging some meetings, a first cost estimate is produced.
An effort is made to reduce the cost as much as possible by choosing the most suitable technologies and cost effective deployment providers.
Software ideas are best prototyped in order to visualize the end product, narrow the project scope, get a final estimate, and prodcue a pragmatic execution plan.
Depending on the project, some initial requirements might be dropped or adjusted in order to accomodate for time, cost, or technology limitations.
A prototype will help you advertise and promote your idea to potential investors.
Seeing is believing!
Once an execution plan is defined, it's time to start implementing it by writing state of the art code.
A big enphasis is put on writing secure code, automating tests, and iterating until all the planned features are ready within the set deadlines.
By the end of this step you should have your idea ready for deployment!
Your brand new software is deployed for initial end-user testing. Once every rough edges are smoothed out we can proceed to production deployment.
Operating a solution in production means that all software components are running correctly, and that best practices for data security and privacy are applied.
The story doesn't end here, you need to use your MVP and improve it in order to gain more insights about the direction of your project.
Choosing the right technology stack is paramount to the success of a project
These are my core values when working on a project!
