Our technical WordPress agency has embraced the agile lifestyle from day one – from our distributed work model up to our daily standups, bi-monthly sprints and ongoing communication in Asana.
While we offer fixed-fee WordPress solutions, our main focus is building long-term business partnerships with our customers. This provides us with the unique opportunity to learn your business process and consult you on development strategies, growth tactics, marketing opportunities and potential revenue plans.
Our team of WordPress developers is used to building WordPress solutions “the agile way”. Our project managers will work closely with you building your business plan in an iterative way.
By planning for agile, you will be able to plan your resources in the long run and be the product owner for your WordPress-driven solution. We will invite you to our Asana project and plan the upcoming iterations based on our backlog.
Our progress would be available for you to review and comment on – being hosted on a staging server with limited access. only accessible by you and our development team.
Based on our backlog, your feedback and tickets from beta users testing the platform, we will allocate a monthly number of hours and assign the right team members based on your needs.
We have creative, development and systems experts in our team (in addition to our management and marketing staff). Iterations could be mixed – requiring both creative or development work at the same time, or niche – focusing purely on development, business planning or marketing.
Our manager will plan each iteration with you and assign skillful team members who will be in charge of each iteration, building the features on the roadmap and deploying a version for you to review before the next iteration.
Reliable WordPress Setup
Due to the nature of the ongoing development plan, we will propose different options for each new feature. If you want to test a specific concept first before investing in a flexible and scalable custom platform, we will install a plugin that provides the functionality first. Your beta testers can interact with your solution and comment on its usability and efficiency.
Based on the feedback we will decide whether it’s better to fine tune the existing product, or build a custom solution from scratch that is more flexible and scales with time.
Additionally, we will build automated tests for your solutions. As it grows over time, we will intercept a large number of internal code calls and build test reports after each sprint. If a regression occurs, this would make it possible to catch it in an automated manner. Our team of WordPress engineers can build an extensive suite of tests – unit, functional, UI, integration ones that would ensure that the product is stable and the main features are still functional after introducing a new layer in the platform.
We can integrate these tests with our Continuous Integration server and combine them with other code quality testing tools which would drastically improve the stability of your platform.
Scalable Server Infrastructure
Since your project will grow with time, we can provide a server setup that is affordable, yet stable at first, and monitor it with our automated server analyzers. Instead of building a monstrous server infrastructure, we will start small, monitor closely and upgrade your server resources as needed.
Our server monitors can track all of your server resources – CPU usage, RAM, hard drive space, and internal interactions with the database and other services. Depending on your traffic plans, we could implement a solid technical layer at first, or provide the backbone, focus on development and integrate the caching and performance layers as the project grows.
