  • I think a blend of both is the way to go.
    You need to save costs ofcourse, but you also need someone available to be there, right beside you for discussions, suggestions etc.

    If you can find an overseas dev whose work hours overlap with yours at least for sometime in the day and is proactive with discussions, nothing can beat that.
    Taking a trip to visit your overseas developer halfway in the project can be a good plan as well. It helps to have discussions sitting across each other at some point.

    A team nearby is often helpful, but it is pretty costly. A luxury you cannot enjoy, while you bootstrap.

    Infact, with any developer, you have to work alongside and provide them the comfort so that they like you as well as respect you a client. This can lead to more fruitful discussions and openness from the developer.

    Invest time in choosing and then be confident on your choice.
    I can go on writing on this but truth is, eventually it comes down to 2 or 3 top developers and at that time, you have to take a call.

    If you would like to discuss further, I will be happy to help.

  • While planning a mobile application, is outsourcing overseas a better option than to find a team nearby where discussions can be held easily by meeting?

  • MindBowser ThoughtWorks Got Killer Idea? What next- from an idea to the market place
  • MindBowser ThoughtWorks Ideate Team Plan Milestones Launch Write a document • • • • • • What is your app trying to achieve Who are the target audience What are the features you want What is the elevator pitch Brief description of screens Any reference from existing apps
  • MindBowser ThoughtWorks Ideate Team Plan Milestones Launch Go through your document after 2 days again • • Add/Delete content Do a market research on what similar type of apps exist in the appstore. Take down, what feature from them you would like to be include in your app
  • MindBowser ThoughtWorks Ideate Team Plan Find a team • • • • Milestones Launch • Don’t wait until the last minute to find a developer. Start early and take your time to find the right person or firm. Otherwise it will cost you. Figuratively and literally. Check the team experience. Check out with references of the team. A good and experienced developer is going to command a premium. If you find someone willing to work for the same wages as a fast food employee then you might as well donate the funds to a worthy cause. Software development requires an odd mix of attention to detail, creativity and tenacity. It is mentally challenging and an experienced developer is worth paying an honest rate. After you have narrowed down with the team, and you feel satisfied, give them the document you had created.
  • MindBowser ThoughtWorks Ideate Team Plan Start working with your team • • • Milestones Launch Now that you have chosen your team. Feel confident to work with it. Don’t expect to get very far with a good developer without letting loose a few details to give them an idea of project scope. We’ve all signed NDA’s. and most developers respect that. So give as much details as you can. Remember, when you’re talking about your project the developer will be mentally tallying it’s feasibility, pain points, cool technical aspects and the like.
  • MindBowser ThoughtWork Ideate Team Plan Milestones Launch Create Mockups • • • Design screen wireframes collaboratively. Make sure that complete project or at least the version one is developed in mock-ups first before you get into development. Decide a theme/design for the screens Don’t overload with features at the first go. Keep it simple and allow your app to grow
  • MindBowser ThoughtWorks Ideate Team Plan Plan Milestones • • • • • Milestones Launch Once mockup and design are finalized, make a project plan with the team Divide the project into milestones Keep some cushion time at completion of each milestone Have a check point scheduled after a group of milestones are achieved, where you discuss the app again with the team Have timely calls and discussion. Understand your development team concerns. Some times things are technically challenging. Allow your development team to conquer those challenges
  • MindBowser ThoughtWorks Ideate Team Plan Milestones Launch Set up a launch date • Keep a cushion time between last milestone and your launch date. Thoroughly test the app and report any issue with development team. • Make a marketing strategy for your app. If possible, take help from professionals • Create a Apple developer account well in advance.
