It is quite often believed that the web development process starts with the design and development but the fact is these stages arrive quite later. The first step and indeed the most crucial one (and often ignored) is understanding the client’s needs. Identifying and understanding what exactly the clients want helps in providing the perfect solution they are looking for. In some cases, when the clients have a technical background, it’s a lot easier to understand the needs and technicality they want in the projects. However, when the clients are entirely unknown to the web and programming world, we ask questions and further clarification that helps to serve them better.
Each and every app is different from one another. So at this stage, our team researches and gathers as much relevant information as possible for the project. An e-commerce web app selling men’s apparel will differ from an online job marketplace. Thus, a deep research and analysis about the industry, target audience, competitors, the motto of the project, the outcomes, etc. provide insights and knowledge required to develop an impeccable web app. For instance, one of our project Getlitt is an online book reading platform with a huge archive of books curated for children. Thus to make an impact, we performed deep research and analysis to create an app that would encourage the children to read the books online.
Did we say understanding the client’s need is the most crucial stage? Here add another to the list – Planning. A solid plan backed by the deep research and analysis is a roadmap towards the destination. At this stage, we define deliverables, sprints and Gantt charts with projected timeline and resources to accomplish it. Varied other major decisions such as formulating the sitemap, wireframing, planning the layout, UI/UX, selecting the right technology stack, etc. are made at this stage. One of the important parts of the planning stage is deciding the sitemap. It is an organized structure of your web app that connects different pages as per the hierarchy and importance of the pages. It helps the users to easily navigate through the website. Here check the figure below.
And now let’s come down to the nitty-gritty of the web application, i.e. the development. This is the stage where the designs approved by the client are transformed into a working model.
The development process can be divided into two parts, i.e. frontend and backend.
Frontend, as per the name refers, is the development of the client side app that is seen by the users. All the designs made during the previous stage are converted to HTML pages with necessary animations and effects
Backend refers to the development of the server side app that is the soul of the frontend and makes the user interface into a working web app. The backend developers create the server-side application, database, integrates business logic and everything that works under the hood.
After the web app is developed and before deploying it to the server, it goes through several meticulous tests to ensure that there are no bugs or issues. The quality team performs tests such as functionality test, usability test, compatibility test, performance test, etc. that ensures the web application is ready for the users and launch. The web development process doesn’t end after deployment. There are several post-deployment tasks to be carried out by the web development company such as providing the clients with the source code and project documents, working on their feedbacks and the post-deployment support and maintenance.
