Definity First nearshore teams use an Agile working methodology to deliver the flexibility and efficiency your project needs. We begin by documenting your full project requirements. Then we establish a roadmap that includes a timeline, deliverables, and an outline of features.
Your nearshore team of engineers moves quickly toward producing a minimum viable product (MVP), which they iterate over until your entire feature set is realized.
Throughout this process, Definity First team conducts regular scrums and production sprints in collaboration with your local US team. With each sprint, your nearshore team adds new features while testing recently completed features until your final product is ready for release.
Our Agile development architecture is pragmatic, helps to deliver business value, manages changes & complexity
Agile is all about flexible and efficient product delivery & can dynamically accommodate changes to requirements. Weekly scrum meetings include your development team, a scrum master, and a product owner. Once the product owner divides up the requirements into individual tasks for the developers, regular scrum meetings ensure steady progress toward your product’s release. These meetings include the development team’s updates to the scrum master, a kind of coach always on the lookout for ways to increase productivity.
Definity First nearshore teams use leading project management and communication tools. We have experience with Jira, Asana, Basecamp and Trello. But we’re happy to adapt to whatever project management solution you prefer. Our developers and designers are also proficient in commonly used communication tools such as Microsoft Teams, Slack, Google Hangouts, Skype, Zoom, and of course email. Rest assured knowing that our teams adapt to your communication preferences and management style.
Continuous deployment means that as your development team pushes new updates to production, users get immediate updates on their end on a continuous and rolling basis. They include all the features and issue fixes completed during the most recent sprint cycle. Importantly, your nearshore team also includes DevOps specialists who monitor and execute continuous deployment systems to ensure that your public-facing product is always up to date.
Our developers are also experienced with test-driven development or TDD. In some instances, short production cycles can be beneficial for working out certain requirements or features. In test-driven development, requirements are converted to very specific test cases & the code is improved until it passes the test. Such an approach can go hand in glove with a general Agile methodology. We're committed to delivering software solutions that add value to your clients.
Overall, Agile development is a type of incremental development technique. Rather than a top-down approach, Agile is iterative and based on production cycles in which learning, and adaptation are key. Together these principles derive from evolutionary architecture, which also uses principles of incremental change and iteration.
