Creating Software applications can cost a lot of time and money. Most people don’t realize that the aftermath of the application can be expensive as well (sometimes). If you aren’t familiar with the process of building an application, then you’ll most likely be surprised that even the “smallest” of changes to your application can take quite a bit of time. So have you ever wondered why? Why does it take so much time to update an application? Below we’ve outlined some reasons that might help solve your question.
Website Design Is Non-Responsive or No Mobile-first Approach
It’s 2018, how in the world is there not a statistic that 100% of applications are responsive? Although it is rare, there are still applications that aren’t responsive in nature. When it comes to building a website, or an application using Node.Js or React.Js, we prefer the mobile-first approach. Simply, when we are in the design phase — mobile is designed first, then tablet, then desktop. Why? In 2017, 52.64% of online traffic came from mobile devices with a projected increase to 79% by the end of 2018. Additionally, the amount of time to introduce a great mobile design after the application or website has shipped isn’t the easiest of things to do.
Quality of Code = Poor
Quality of Code is one of the most important factors we look at when taking on new Software Development Projects. Once we take a look at the code, we can quickly assess how great the project is. One of the main things we look for it’s the structure of the code. Can it be identified easily? Is the code consistent with how the past development team uses semicolons or indents? For a non-programming, these inconsistencies might not sound like a big deal but it enhances the development process. When TPrimmz Digital works on a React.Js or Node.Js project, we build it so you can toss it to your in-house development team and there won’t be issues on setting up. We believe that code quality should be taken seriously and we shouldn’t ever try to build a software project fast, but with quality.
No ReadMe File
Aahhh, the ReadMe file is one of the most vital files to your project. This is something that you will need every time a new developer joins the team. In a good Readme file, you should have things like how to use the application, how to continue building it, and then hopefully deploy it. The requirements of the application should be clear. Finally, there should be a place of a RoadMap (Upcoming Features of The Application).
