The designs are done and you know exactly what you want (or at least to this point you do). Now it is time to find a developer that will bring your prototype to life. From my experience people usually go one of four ways:
- Learn to code themselves
- Find a technical co-founder
- Hires an overseas team because of the low price tag
- Hires DeveloperX
I love it when entrepreneurs find a true passion for software development and they dive deep into learning how to code and applying what they learn in real time. The drawback is development takes time and especially for someone new to coding, it will take a lot longer to complete even the smallest tasks.
If you are lucky enough to partner with a technical co-founder make sure your co-founder can actually get the job done. We have been approached by many startups because they just didn’t have the technical expertise to get through some of the issues you face when developing an application and releasing it to production. I believe experience is crucial in developing applications from scratch.
In my honest opinion, I would never recommend working with an overseas team. I am not just saying that because I want you to work with DeveloperX but because I have never experienced working with a good overseas team. I’ve worked with Fortune 500 companies and well-known startups and every piece of code we have ever received from an overseas team were horrible. The code usually introduces 10932 new bugs, makes 234 API requests, and isn’t optimized but solves the 1 issue on a ticket. I am not saying every overseas team is horrible but in my 10+years of experience, I haven’t run into any scalable solutions.
Hiring DeveloperX is the best choice for your startup, especially if you don’t have a CTO or technical co-founder. We have over a decade of experience in building highly scalable enterprise software. Our technical expertise and experience will accelerate any startup to getting a prototype created and a minimum viable product in-front of your users. Learn more about how we work.
