application development

Avoid Technical Debt

When more users come online will your application manage the new load or will your app crash? If it doesn't scale, do you need to rebuild the app? Be wary of poorly written code, outdated tech stacks, low unit test coverage, a difficult to work on or maintain codebase and a lack of documentation.


Own the code

If you are paying for the development, make sure you own the source code and that there are no IP restrictions that are restrictive. Additionally, investigate if any licensed software has been bundled into your development which requires annual fees, regular updates and maintenance.


Clear Communication

Consider communication, language and cultural differences that can lead to a gap in expectations and a lack of transparency in the development process.
