A software development plan describes the development process step by step — It covers planning, ideation, development, documentation, deployment, launch, and sometimes maintenance

What’s a software development plan?

Software development project plans allow product owners, stakeholders, and developers to optimize development. The goal of a software development plan is to provide clear answers to the following questions:

  • Which functionality is chosen to solve this problem?
  • Which tasks need to be formed to develop the described functionality?
  • What is the order of the feature development?
  • Who is involved in the project?
  • How is responsibility divided among the team members?
  • What are the expected dependencies in the product?
  • What quality metrics will define the efficiency of the project and the quality of the product?

Development frameworks are used to organize the development progress. Developers get the ready structure for their code base, can apply reusable elements, and increase product speed. Using web frameworks for the front end is common — developers use frameworks to work with JavaScript.

Using frameworks for backend is slightly less common, but it is just as helpful. When we work on web development projects, we apply frameworks to a client- and server-side alike — because it’s highly efficient and convenient.

How to choose the best Node.js framework?

When we choose the best Node JS framework for our projects, we always pay attention to determining factors. Normally…

User Experience became a separate field in development and design relatively recently, when Donald Norman , a cognitive psychologist, joined Apple in 1990. He coined the term because it seemed to capture Apple’s goals of delivering intuitive functionality and smooth interface, centered on users’ needs.

From that point on, UX design became a must for software development companies and startups that want to create a comfortable and attractive product.

Today, each company should aim to be a design-driven one, which means delivering the most functional version of its products or services in a way that’s convenient for end-users. A potential…

Objective-C was introduced in 1984 and used to be the main programming language for iOS and Apple OS X. Objective-C is basically a superset of C and C++. When it comes to operating with both of these, the code works smoothly.

Objective-C Pros:

  • Famous and reputed language
  • Stable language
  • Easy use of private APIs
  • Compatible with C++
  • Less skilled developers
  • Complex to learn
  • Limited functionality
  • Not much secure

In broad terms, SaaS can be defined as access to the software when you don’t actually need to install it on your PC. Usually, it is a cloud solution used by modern businesses. With SaaS products, you can manage your workloads just by upgrading the subscription. Thus, the business flexibility and scalability rise a lot.

Modern marketing is highly data-driven, so identifying your brand’s key metrics is an essential step toward fueling growth.

SaaS metrics can be split according to their purpose:

Success metrics

  • MRR, Monthly recurring revenue
  • Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR)
  • Churn rates
  • Gross margin, COGS, EBITDA SM, Rule of 40
  • Total Contract Value (TCV)…


Our current generation of millennials craves instant gratification, which is evident in our fast-paced society and how we use the Internet today. It’s a known fact that 55% of web users spend less than 15 seconds on a web page before losing focus. This clearly states why interactive and intuitive web designs have become more critical than ever.

And with only 15 seconds to make a great impression and deliver value to web users, developers will certainly have their work cut out for them. …

Firebase is a backend-as-a-service (BaaS) platform that is built on Google infrastructure. The traditional app development process requires writing both frontend and backend software. Firebase service came up with many tools and features for backend solutions and allowed you to focus on the front-end UI and functionality. Firebase consists of software development kits (SDKs), which allow mobile and web developers to access cloud functionality securely, and reliably. It helps to build better apps and grow successful businesses in the short term.

The Pros of Firebase

  • Database options.
  • Free start.
  • Accessible UIs and smooth integration.
  • Efficient and secure hosting.
  • Wide variety…

Node.js and Python both are great languages. Choosing which language for back-end development depends on the developer experience and use cases. Node.js is faster than Python, but JavaScript is more complicated to work in the backend. Nevertheless, Node.js has a serious advantage over Python because it allows you to code in JavaScript on both the client and the server side. Let’s go shortly through the main advantages and disadvantages of both compared languages:

Advantages of Python

  • Fast Development and Deployment
  • Simple Syntax
  • Large Ecosystem
  • Large Community
  • Lower Performance Speed
  • Low Performance Quality in Mobile Versions
