So you covered a lot of topics during the briefing stage with the client, and interviews with the users. Now it's time to organize all this gathered data and make it useful during the workshops.
UJM is a user-centered methodology. No wonder, that you need to research, define and select your users carefully before the workshops. In many cases, we don't have access to real users' data or interviews. That's why we are working with User Personas. A UP is your target group personalized and merged into one persona. A User Persona is a set of characteristics typical for one of your users' types.
User Journey Mapping (UJM) is one of the exercises that really helps to structure the UX design. In UJM we look at the user needs and behaviors from different angles and perspectives. In UJM, you use carefully organized workshops to learn and discover different layers of information about your user & product context. This allows us to find the best user interface solutions that can deliver your value to the customer. Here's how we understand and use UJM in practice.
Choosing the right tech partner may decide about the success of your project. Although the role of development itself tends to be overrated, as we pointed out in this post, skillful planning and excellent execution help you launch a better product.
Darek is a backend software engineer at the Order Group. His leading technology is Python - our favorite programming language. He joined us on December 2017, and since then he has participated in four major projects, each was more interesting than the previous one. Read his story to learn why he's happy he chose Order Group over an international corporation.
Meet Angelika, Head of People at Order Group. Joining our team was an excellent experiment for her, an experienced corporate IT HR MANAGER The move seemed a little bit risky, but after almost two years with us, she has no doubt it was the right choice. As for OG, hiring her turned out to be a real game-changer.
People tend to overestimate the role of product development. That's what I've learned over the years of building software for entrepreneurs and product owners. I guess it's partly because they are easily carried away by the possibilities the new technology brings to the table.
Design thinking has become popular in software development recently. No wonder as it brings in lots of advantages. Analyzing a UX prototype during a few days of the workshop, you can substantially cut the time-to-market, save money, and improve the quality of your end product. Let me tell you how it works.
South by Southwest® (SXSW®) Conference & Festivals celebrate the convergence of the interactive, film, and music industries, and we are exhibiting here!
Development of python language is attributed to Guido Van Rossum. It was first released in 1991 and has since then seen evolutions that have increased its efficiency. On 16th October 2000, Python 2.0 was launched encompassing new features such as a cycle-detecting garbage collector. Python 3.0 was later released on December 2008.
When developing a mobile phone app, developers need to use software to enable them to do it. Often, for an app, the developers will need to use different platforms depending on the different operating systems such as iOS or Android. However, there's now an alternative to using diverse platforms, and this is through cross-platform development.
One of the most important things to consider when developing a new web application is the backend technology it will be based upon.
Businesses that choose the right technology for the job have a much greater chance of getting their projects off the ground and finding long-term success. On the other hand, the wrong backend technology can have a serious negative impact on the performance of the web application, and it may even lead to project failure.
React Native is an excellent framework for hybrid mobile app development. The idea is to write mostly the same code (90 percent or more) for every operating system. It saves time and improves control over the project. However, the devil's in the details, and there are some differences in building a React Native app for iOS and Android. We'll discuss them in this post.
As more and more companies start to move from the desktop environment to the mobile environment more and more programming languages for Android and iOS have been springing up. An ever-growing app development framework is also the cross-platform framework this is much needed especially when you need applications to be able to work on both iOS and Android or for converting either them.
Choosing a technology that will either support a startup or determine the grow of a corporate project is one of the key decisions that need to be taken. Regardless of whose dilemma is it, a startup founder, product owner or a corporate decision-maker, it is of great importance to determine which project should be written in which language. A well-chosen IT solution can ensure speed of operation, scalability, the ability to modernize and respond to customer needs and behaviors quickly.
When you are planning a product development process that includes mobile applications, there's a wealth of information online about which platform is the best to use. It takes a lot of searching through the technical info and jargon to get to the bottom of it.
Should we go with iOS or Android first? Or both? This is the biggest dilemma when planning mobile app development. There's also the third solution - going hybrid. With frameworks such as React Native, you can go for "one code you can use everywhere." Unfortunately, there are no easy answers. It all depends on the product you are planning to build and the direction where the technology, Apple, and Google will go in the next years. In this post, I'll try to make the decision more comfortable for you.
A native application is built to run on a particular operating system - usually Android or iOS, which own respectively 74.5% and 23% of the global mobile OS market share. Both Google and Apple develop their ecosystems. The apps are distributed through their services: Google Play and App Store.
Finding qualified software engineers and digital product designers is a great challenge. That's why startups and corporations often choose partnerships with tech companies, that specialize in building remote dev teams. In this post, I'll explain how to choose the right custom software agency. The right decision can determine the future success of your project - be it web or mobile app development, digital design or advanced backend solution.
Both Ruby on Rails and Django are great choices. When you need to choose the perfect framework for web development of your next project, start with defining the needs and let your dev team speak - they will use the tool that better suits your expectations.
You are making a business decision about what software technologies to adopt for your projects. Both of these languages feature in technical discussions, but low-level coding assessment may not be your forte. So what features, benefits and drawbacks of each should you take into account?
What does “mobile app success” look like? How about these four characteristics for a start?
With the world quickly becoming a hub for online synced activity and mobile devices, it is no surprise that almost all the next big business ideas are related to mobile technology. At the moment, software development is probably the hottest field globally, both as a profession and as an investment opportunity. With the number of dot com billionaires and millionaires growing by the minute, knowing where the potential for investment is can be a big source of financial gain. Here is a curation of the top businesses that we think are worth keeping an eye on in 2019.
Xamarin is a framework which uses a cross-platform implementation of Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) and Common Language Specification. Xamarin makes use of a C# shared codebase that enables developers to use Xamarin tools to write native, Android iOS, and Windows App with the native user interface and also share codes among multiple platforms including Windows and macOS.
With the vast majority of the world owning a smartphone, it’s easy to believe that apps are taking over. You can log your food, bank, record exercise, communicate, play games and so much more through the ease of a mobile application. Given their popularity, you may think that it’s a simple feat to have a successful mobile app. This idea is just not true.
