After building 350+ successful products-this is our winning process.

We are not only technology experts but also product experts. We’ve won many awards and our customers have been featured on ProductHunt, TechCrunch, Discovery Channel, Cosmopolitan Magazine, Inc.com and have had successful exits. Our client’s have received millions of dollars in funding from marquee investors like Chan Zuckerberg initiative, Simons Foundation, The Carson family charitable trust, and many more.

Product Development Cycle

For the last 12 years, we have continually tweaked our development process. The core of our process is “Bringing Predictability to delivery and value scalability.” With CI/CD pipelines and automated code reviews, our customers enjoy faster feedback cycles and quicker reviews.

Here is our product development cycle at a glance

The complete process is built on strong project management and process fundamentals as defined below.

Design Sprint

Backed with Design Sprint practice, we help our customers evolve their products and plans. A Design Sprint is a series of meticulously designed steps, conceptualized by Google to build better user experience and design thinking into the products.

Design Sprint is part of a complete idea transformation process that helps you conceptualize your idea and create a blueprint that the development team can follow. While we use the Design Sprint best practices, we do not stop at just providing recommendations. Our Design Sprint leads to a complete mockup version of your idea that can then act as a blueprint that the development team can follow.

Here is typical series of activities that we do while working with our customers during a Design Sprint

 

Agile Methodology

Once the project plan is outlined, we utilize scrum practices for development. management. Using agile methodology for project management  we deliver new components every 2-4 weeks to our clients. Within a Sprint, a planned amount of work is completed by our team and made ready for review.

Every Sprint comprises daily Scrum meetings, Sprint Retro, Demo days, UAT, and Code Review. This means that every sprint solidifies your product and does not leave anything for chance.

Faster Speed and Predictability Achieved With Automation and CI/CD

CI/CD pipeline implementation at Mindbowser allows merging working copies of code from different developers together in a shared mainline several times throughout the day. These pipelines form the backbone of DevOps automation. Additionally, quality assurance and security checks are automated with tools like CodeGrip.

The process shortens the code-change-result cycle, making the code easier to fix and update as the turnaround is much quicker and cheaper. The goal is for developers to receive immediate feedback on issues found within their most recent code revisions. Fixes can be made at the earliest opportunity (and lowest cost). This helps ensure the delivery of high-quality, reliable, and competitive software products on time.

Since there is no human intervention in the process, there is no risk of falling off the process.

Ship Daily

To bring predictability, we use the best DevOps practices to enable proper project environments, daily commits, and performance dashboards. As a result, teams can quickly validate the idea and make adjustments in response to user feedback, which helps to ensure that the final product is high quality and meets the needs of its users.

We define the most important features or changes to the product and prioritize them based on their impact, effort and risk. The components can be broken down into smaller tasks, and create a plan for completing them within a day. Changes are deployed in a staging environment for further testing and getting feedback from stakeholders and users.

The process gets repeated daily, continuously delivering small changes to the product and incorporating user feedback to iterate on their ideas. The agile approach also helps minimize the risk of introducing bugs or other issues, as changes are small and incremental.

Rapid Prototyping

The prototype’s goal is to take the storyboard and make it more realistic. Prototypes will give you a better idea of what the final product will look like and how it will work. Our experts work towards making all your ideas come to life and prototype those to your vision. Through rapid prototyping, designers can test their ideas with users and implement early changes.

With Mindbowser, we create multiple versions of components for testing and evaluation. With turnkey technologies, we create mockups quickly and efficiently.

Clean Code

Clean code is a software development approach that focuses on writing code that is easy to read, understand, and maintain. We prioritize simplicity, clarity and consistency, making it easier for developers to maintain and update the codebase over time.

Our clean code approach helps businesses achieve expert guidance and best practices on how to write clean and maintainable code. The scalable process ensures the codebase remains relevant even as an organization’s needs change over time.

Zero-Trust Security

The zero-trust security approach is a security model that assumes that all users, systems and devices are untrusted until proven otherwise. This approach protects organizations from cyber attacks by requiring strict access controls and continuous authentication of identity and context.

Our zero-trust security approach is designed to help organizations implement this approach by providing expert guidance, tools and best practices to help organizations secure their networks and systems. You can proactively manage risk by requiring continuous identity and context verification, making detecting and responding to potential threats easier.

By working with experts in the field, organizations can use the latest best practices and methodologies to implement zero-trust security and help them achieve their security goals.

Launch and Support

At Mindbowser, we help you with your vision by not just developing software applications for you but going beyond it to help you get your product in the hands of the users far and wide.

Throughout the engagement, we share with you the best practices and recommendations on marketing and launch plans. We introduce you to mentors and other useful connections as well as industry peers. Product journeys with Mindbowser are a complete holistic plan for success.

KPIs Based Project Approach

At Mindbowser, we design KPIs for every engagement. These KPIs are defined mutually between the team and the customers and determine the success of the project. The KPIs set up a predictable path for the project and stakeholders to follow and help prioritize key areas.

KPIs then help us generate reports that are shared with customers on a weekly basis sharing the health of the project.

Three Reasons Why We are Not Just Another Development Agency

Mindbowser believes three things really are different in the context of the software industry between agencies. 

Our Thought Process

How Our End-to-end Approach Can Help Your Business

Following a systematic approach to our craft has allowed us to avoid pitfalls that many others may succumb to. The whole process ensures that the applications we develop do not end up having spaghetti code. This makes future revisions a breeze. 

Our rigorous testing and best practices ensure that the product can endure huge amounts of load without crashing and failing. We make it a priority to have a well-defined system architecture and have a clear vision of what we’re building. We utilize industry-standard coding conventions and best practices to ensure readability and understandability. 

Our meticulous planning, thinking, and fine control lead to predictable, surprise-free software. This helps us avoid the issues that come with scaling up and also helps us manage our technical debt to be as low as possible.
