TRAITS Of Our Development Team, What you should look for in Any Developer
Consistent and constant communication is essential in any type of project. Especially once you engage into an outsourcing project where you work with developers in different time zones. We are very focused on being "Available" with an offices in Las Vegas, NV and Barcelona, Spain we are readily available to help you with your project becoming a reality.
Great programmers never accept things “as is”; they need to poke deep inside something, even when it appears to be working fine, to learn more. This is how many problems are solved before they are problems, and it’s usually the quickest way to fix acute issues. A programmer without this mentality will usually end up lacking the knowledge underlying why they are doing what they are doing, which means they’re working with blinders on.
★CLEAR THINKING SKILLS★
Adding up 2+2 = 4 is very easy to do. However finding programmers that are strong in math so they can figure out difficult math equations and problems like this simple example “2 + x = 4″ and figure out that “x” is equal to 2 are much less common. We hire and train programmers with strong math or science backgrounds.
★TOP FLIGHT READING AND COMPREHENSION★
Programmers must be able to thoroughly read and understand documentation and case types in building of a project. This may seem like a no brainer. Surprisingly a lot off issues and problems could be avoided by understanding the requirements and more important communicating when they are not clear.
★ATTENTION TO DETAIL★
Difference between good apps and great apps is this simple rule. The same is true with the difference between good programmers and great programmers. Attention to detail quickly separates the Great from the good!
★QUICK LEARNER OUTSIDE OF PROGRAMMING★
While a lot of programming know is done if object oriented languages. Understanding and comprehending real world examples and applying that to code becomes essential in programming a project with the right purpose in mind!
★SELF LEARNING SKILLS★
While we have great teams with Senior programmers being able to mentor Jr Programmers when issues arise. The ability to have self learning skills is extremely important. There is many times when programming will need special code or work around for it to work. The ability to learn new skills becomes extremely important.
Anyone that has every programmed know that you have to have a stomach and mind for it, but even more important is you have to have a heart to want to program. This kind of Passion is a “make or break” during difficult projects as well as giving the programmers passion to finish a project. Just like a home builder can have great satisfaction in seeing a finished project, a developer can have the same fulfillment and passion in seeing a project finished!
We have not worked on a single project that had a least some minor changes. The ability to adapt for a project becomes crucial for its success.
★GOOD COMMUNICATION SKILLS★
While we covered "Availability" as one of the most important communication skills. The ability to easily understand ideas and return mock-ups and flow documents that both parties can understand is essential!
★WHOS THE BOSS? ★
Developers are independent by nature, which makes it easier to give them the reigns to drive the wagon. However there is many times when nontechnical issues arise and developers must modify their approach on the project because of other issues (secrecy, politics, budget, etc)
We encourage educating our clients as a programmer and from a technical perspective of why it may be a bad decision. However at the end of the day its not our wagon and we must bring it to the "Bosses" destination!
