Developing Applications for Your Online Presence

Application development is a multi-billion dollar industry. Hundreds of millions of applications have been developed ever since the inception of the world’s first computer mainframe, through the invention of the first home PC, the first laptop, the first interactive website, the first smart phone, and the first tablet computer.

Application development is a highly technically skilled field of craftsmanship. Despite all of the media hype portraying application development as being a job that is just being shipped overseas to third world countries at cheaper labor, the fact still remains that it is still one of the most important functions in the information age today, and one that continues to remain strong even domestically within the United States.

But of course, as with any other skill, there are some people who are extremely adept at developing applications. They can code quite literally while “blindfolded”. They can produce flawless, efficient, and functional code And then there are those who struggle with application development. They can get the job done, but the quality of their work output may be somewhat lacking. It may not be coded as efficiently as it could be, and the level of sophistication of their finished product may not be up to par with professional, quality work that you might otherwise expect to find.

So if you are looking to hire a firm to perform some application development for you, then how can you decide which one to go with, as there seem to be so many out there? Here are some strategies to help you narrow down your choices from among the myriad of choices:

  1. Ask to see an application development firm’s portfolio of previous works. They need to be able to showcase their experience, their talent, and also need to be able to provide you with a sense of the quality of their work.
  2. Ask them to demonstrate that they are able to understand your requirements for the project. Can they properly translate your requirements into either a flow chart, a Powerpoint presentation, or even high-level “pseudo-code” that demonstrates that they not only understand your requirements, but that they also know how to translate your requirements into logical bits of programmable code.
  3. The application development firm absolutely must offer both a warranty for its finished product as well as some sort of ongoing support and maintenance agreement. This is for your own protection, in case there are any defects in the code that might surface later on that could negatively impact your business, or any future enhancements or fixes that might need to be made.

Application developmentis, without a doubt, more critical now in this age of smart phones, tablet computers, and mission critical applications being developed almost exclusively in “the cloud”. So the need for developing and supporting new applications is increasing as more and more applications are coming online every day. And that is why you need to ensure that your application development needs are being met by a competent individual or team that keeps up to date with cutting edge development tools and methodologies.
