Why investing in code refactoring is crucial for app success?

It consists of software development of the project, creating its technical specification, designing the user experience of end-users, and the product’s visual layer. Besides, IT development also includes testing, reacting, and fixing errors in the code and ensuring that the software products fulfill all the tasks set for them. Therefore, IT development contains not only writing the software but also maintaining the source code and the final product. In the vast majority of cases, apart from the technical layer of the project, we also deal with such elements as market analysis, workshop process, or in-depth analysis of future users’ needs.
Every effective IT development process should be systematized, thoroughly tested, and well known by the whole team participating in the project. Only in this way, it is possible to get an in-depth understanding of future users’ needs of a given software product’s assumptions and business goals. In some details, in each digital agency, the process may look a bit different, but its purpose should always be the same. In Applover, this process is divided into the following five steps:
Step 1: Brief – a document that contains questions about the goals, assumptions, expectations, and requirements related to the project. This is the first step to start cooperation and IT development, without which the team will not be able to get to know the vision of the originators of the product, its essential functionalities, or general assumptions.
Step 2: Initial valuation – created based on the brief is nothing binding. It allows getting an initial idea of the project’s budget or how much time the team needs to complete it.
Step 3: First workshop – this stage aims to get the necessary information and materials to create an initial technical specification, perform a technical analysis of the product, and design mockups. This is the stage where the software product’s originators can directly influence its final appearance and, what is more, understand how further cooperation will proceed.
Step 4: Second workshop – the next stage aims to create the project’s final technical specification and wireframes. At this point, the QA team is involved in the project, whose task is to inform the client which elements and functionality of the product may be problematic. During the second workshop, the client can get acquainted with all the tools and applications used, e.g., for contact, to constantly participate in the IT development process.
Step 5: Kickoff – the second workshop’s result are wireframes and the final technical specification of the project accepted by the client. Thanks to them, we can be sure that the whole team understood the project. After completing all the necessary formalities project manager, designers and programmers can start the IT development process.
