Questions to Ask Before Any Web Development Project
Do you want to start a new web development project but don’t know how? Here we prepared for you the top 5 W-questions that you, as a business owner, should ask yourself before choosing an executor for your web project.
What is this project aimed at?
Frequently clients can’t predict what will be better for their business. As for Exposit, we start the project only with deeper understanding of client’s motivations. We know how to help their business grow as we provide software that is not only good-looking but functions properly. Firstly, you must ask yourself such questions:
- What devices do my clients use?
- Is my software project intended for a corporate use?
- Can the mobile app run without a web version?
- Do I need data management for things like e-commerce or content development?
- Is it necessary to customize chosen web app?
Who is our Target Audience?
When we talk about Project development from scratch, it is crucial to understand target audience of our customer. We must gather all the necessary information from our clients and then give them feedback, concerning technical project’s feasibility and the necessity to develop the requested functionality.
For example, there was a case when the client wanted both a web app and mobile app. But we analyzed all requirements and target audience and understood that it would be enough to develop a web app with adaptation for mobile devices. Thus we saved two things: time and money.
When do I need Backend or Frontend developers for my project?
The kind of web developer to seek out depends on part of functionality you need to implement within your web app.
- Backend development is a necessity for any server improvements, designing application architecture, manipulating data, implementing API, blockchain technology or whatever to make frontend work.
- Frontend Development wins, when you need to make client-side of your web app. This may include creating user interface for web apps according to designers' mockups, development of adaptive and responsive layout, organizing of cross-browser and cross-platform compatibility.
- A middle ground is Full Stack Developers offering the full package. Our team also has engineers working on both the server and client side, for example, developing plugins for Atlassian products like JIRA.
