Complex, robust, and custom web development based in the heart of Chicago gives businesses the opportunity for a versatile, consistent experience for users across various platforms. Grasping new approaches to Web Development which include progressive Web Applications. Adeocode brings front-end, back-end, and architectural ability inclusive’s to deliver upon your business’s needs and desires as well as maximizing delivery speeds.
The first and honestly the most important step before a single project goes into its Web Development phase is the User Experience & User Interaction. This is the holy grail of where an idea turns into a concept. It’s like you being the architect for the skyscrapers in Chicago. You can’t just focus on Michigan Avenue without working on State Street as well! Same with design, you can’t simply dive into immediate design phases within a web development project. An understanding of who your target audience is, what they look for, and what they expect from you are just some of many characteristics that are a necessity to discuss with you, the client, before diving into a more in-depth phase of work within the entirety of the project. Spending adequate and necessary time on this part of the process allows you to be certain you are understanding what is being needed at hand for the concepts to turn into an actual web design.
Ah voila. The beautiful UX/UI design has successfully been created and approved by you. Now it’s time to relay this wonderful information that we’ve compiled of web design to our actual web developer. To our, Front End Developers to be more exact. Our front end developer works hand in hand with our designer in a transition phase of taking the prototype, wireframes as well as the overall web design and actually transforming it into code within the web development process. Being the best web development team in Chicago, we can assure you that you’re apart of the process just as the entirety of our team is too. You are greeted with daily updates, conference calls with the live status of the development phase, as well as any additional input needed from you to relay to our team. The Front End Developer outlines to you the exact framework and steps we are taking for your specific project in order for you to be aware of and fully understand our decisions and reasoning behind our selection.
Now we transition onwards to the technical phase. The Back End Development is just as important as the Front End Development, to say the least. For clients who aren’t the most tech-savvy, this portion of Web Development is basically where the functionality of your entire project’s features are implemented. Anything from database integrations to third-party software usage. A solid example would be when we have Chicago workers pave a new road, this would mimic the front-end portion, but those roads always have potholes! The back end assures those holes get filled with the materials they need to guarantee they never have to worry about going bad again and staying fully functional for what they were made for in the first place. Another prime example would be let’s say you own a restaurant, and all your website has is images of your menu, food, and team members. All of this would’ve been taken care of on the Front End Web Development portion. But your website and business is naturally extremely important to you, and you need things such as a booking system for reservations, a payment processor for orders made for pick-up, this is all done with Back End Web development!
Going back to the example of the crappy roads every person in Chicago knows about, the Quality Assurance phase of the project is the testing phase where we all become in control. Who tests these roads in Chicago no other than it’s own people! In this case for the Web Development that’s being worked on your website, we have to test it for problems, bugs, or any type of errors in between. Whenever a task is marked as completed, it indeed becomes completed, but that’s just for the Web Development Phase. You have to put yourself in the shoes of all the consumers, clients, and customers that will be using your website as soon as it’s live. What’s worse than hopping onto a nice looking site that ends up basically being worthless because you can’t navigate to a single webpage since your entire screen is jumping all over the place from one click to another! Adeocode doesn’t have OCD but we do have MVP, which stands for Minimal Viable Product that’s exactly what becomes the next phase after Quality Assurance Testing. Once every single bad boy bug is found and resolved and you’re essentially ready for the minimalistic version of your website to launch live on the web.
Phew. One of the biggest satisfactions come at this very moment of the project’s phase which is when you arrive at the completion of the MVP – Minimal Viable Product. Getting to this stage of the project essentially means we’re proud to present you with a standalone production of your website that is fully functioning, entirely responsive across various devices, as well as ready to use if needed at that very moment. (We’ve had clients from Chicago in the past that needed to launch with their MVP version of their website in the past.) However, this was usually for emergency reasons. Going back to the very original planning phase at the beginning of the project as discussed earlier on this page, this should rarely ever be a consideration since we work together to accurately and accordingly plan and estimate a proper timeframe that you’re well aware of ahead of time for there’s no margin for error. We suggest that this phase of the website development and project is the best time to showcase and display to your investors, coworkers, family or anyone in between that you think should deserve to be aware of what has been developed this far up to date.
Checkmate. Just like that, your website is ready to go! Upon launch we, of course, touch base with you to notify you in regards to your website development being entirely done and upon double-checking to assure everything is good to go, we still wait upon your thumbs up for approval as well as doing a thorough overview of what was agreed upon in terms of the agreement of deliverables promised as well as plans for post-launch maintenance and updates.
