We have used Remote Programmer for last 13 years (as on Jan 2020) and have always been impressed by the quality of the service they provide. We have a fairly complex website with more than 500 MySQL tables which requires a lot of work on an ongoing basis so we opted to use dedicated resources from them. It is a great value for money.
Stack means piles of objects. In web development it is piles of layers. Modern large web applications are developed in layers. Front end, backend, database and so on. One layer of code is managed totally separate from others. In a large application development, many developers are assigned to write code specific to a layer. For most web applications it is divided into main two layers only, frontend and backend. Database layer code is written in backend only.
In a web application, the front end means the user interface and the backend constitutes the APIs. An user interacts with the software through an interface and requests for information. The interface collects the user request, processes it internally and sends it (usually via JSON format) to the backend via an API call. The backend API connects different parts of the system as required (say database server, mail server etc), processes it and sends it back to the front end interface via the same API.
The job of a front end developer is to do all the work associated with building interfaces that makes the API call. On the other hand a backend developer is the person who does all the work associated with developing the APIs that takes the call, interacts with other parts of the system and returns the data to the frontend.
A Full Stack Developer is the person who can work on both frontend and backend.
When you hire a different frontend and backend developer, your team size must be 3 or more. You always need a 3rd person who will bridge the gap between frontend and backend.
But if your project is small or it is a maintenance project you do not have a budget for hiring 3 separate people you need a full stack developer. The pros of hiring a full stack developer are
However cons are there too. A fullstack developer may not be efficient as a stack specific developer.
There are two popular options
Option 1 - PHP Stack
Option 2 (MERN Stack )
Dedicated hiring starts at $1200 only. Hourly rates start with $10 only. However cost is likely to change with experience, skillset and past track record
You can hire dedicated, part dedicated or usage based. However we suggest dedicated if your budget allows because the same developer is likely to work for years. He will be just like your own employee.
The single biggest reason is the cost. You can get the same project done at much lower price in India.
Toyota became world leader in car manufacturing by practicing Lean. Leading businesses today do DevOps (the successor of Lean) automation to minimize the waste. We too can help you in this regard.
Quality not defined is quality denied. There are some core qualities those must be introduced in the design phase, can never be added after QC process. We add these built-in-quality through TDD checkpoints.
Most of the project management software takes care of the project life cycle only. Our project cum product management system automates the CMMI processes in agile perspective throughout the product life cycle (PLC).
Our system includes a built in agile requirement development and management system. It helps both you and the developer to extract the software requirements easily in the format that a developer actually needs.
Change is a must to stay in business. A change can be a bug, an missed out requirement, an improvement or simply a new addition. To report, manage and document a change is important. Our system process takes care of it.
Without a proper testing (verification and validation), there is a little chance that all the funtional and non funtional requirements will be there in the delivery. We have a built-in system and process to take care of it.
Project execution is one time job, but the delivered product requires future maintenance. It can be too painful if the system logics, flow diagrams, use cases, changes are not documented. We do it in the background.
The fact is, most software projects run in late. There can be many reasons but only one solution. Know the reasons at earliest and act accordingly. We provide anytime estimate change report to act before it surprises you.
We have sevearl 15+ years experienced experts who guide the developers in defining the product, processes and design the architecture as required. You get the standards set by the experts but implemented by developers.
This has been possible because of the availiblity of high quality skills at India price together with agile practices, process automation, integrated test managment with TDD checklists, 5S verification and finally ethical practices.
We provide future support. Even if you come back with a small change. Client stay with for years. Most of our clients are with us for more than 5 years. The main reason we would like to grow with our clients.
