MVP isn’t just an acronym for Most Valuable Player. It’s also a term used often in the software world: Minimum Viable Product. What is an MVP? Well, in a nutshell, it’s the bare bones piece of software that fits its essential purpose. For example, for a music player app, a screen with a big fat play button that plays all the songs in your Music folder. It’s a starter software to the bigger picture!
Oh wow, here we go… How long is a piece of string? Apps can cost anywhere from under a hundred dollars/pounds/euros to make to over hundreds of thousands! The size, all the “moving parts”, and graphic design of your app are all important elements that help guide putting a dollar figure on your app.
You have a million dollar app idea. But you don’t have a million dollars to get it off the ground. How can you put together something professional looking to see if others would be interested - if you don’t have any design skills?
It’s time to get serious about your startup. You have a great idea, you have a business plan, and now you need someone on side driving the tech side of things. It’s time to hire your CTO. But how do you do that? Is it just someone who draws up plans for the tech needed? Do they need a head for numbers?
For any business, not for profit, or even for building a personal project or your personal brand, embarking on web and app development can be a tricky time. Without personal experience in the process, it’s hard to figure out timelines: which should go where, and when?
Fixed price contracts can be rather tricky in a Scrum environment. Classic software development and Agile software development are very different from one another, and things that work in one environment don’t necessarily work in another.
