  • 5. WebGeekDevCup taghuddle.com/WebGeekDevCupDeveloping Bukas Paladhttp://webpilipinas.github.com/bukaspaladStep 2: Brand- Thought about a good name to use- Once I had a name (“Bukas Palad”), Ideveloped a logo. - You can purchase design/logo elements on GraphicRiver (http://graphicriver.net) for a very cheap price (e.g. Bukas Palad logo template is $4 USD)
  • 6. WebGeekDevCup taghuddle.com/WebGeekDevCupDeveloping Bukas Paladhttp://webpilipinas.github.com/bukaspaladStep 3: Minimum Viable Product- Wrote down all the features I wanted, orderedby priority- Erase bottom 50%- From the remaining, I determined which featuresare ABSOLUTELY and UNEQUIVOCALLY required.- Implement those features
  • 7. WebGeekDevCup taghuddle.com/WebGeekDevCupDeveloping Bukas Paladhttp://webpilipinas.github.com/bukaspaladStep 4: Schedule- Determined a deadline for each feature on mylist (e.g. Feature #1 should be done by 11:30AM,Feature #2 should be done by 12:00NN- WORK!
  • 8. WebGeekDevCup taghuddle.com/WebGeekDevCupDeveloping Bukas Paladhttp://webpilipinas.github.com/bukaspaladStep 5: WORK- By 3PM, I was finished with Step 1 to Step 3-WORK- WORK- Finished MVP by 6PM
  • 9. WebGeekDevCup taghuddle.com/WebGeekDevCupDeveloping Bukas Paladhttp://webpilipinas.github.com/bukaspaladStep 6: Improvements- Picked improvements from my list of featuresthat did not make the second feature cut. - “Transportation” feature - “Update Feed” feature- Implement in a separate Git branch- Launch each feature one at a time
  • 10. WebGeekDevCup taghuddle.com/WebGeekDevCupDeveloping Bukas Paladhttp://webpilipinas.github.com/bukaspaladStep 1: Idea- Always choose to do something that you are veryfamiliar with or have experienced yourself. Thisway, you are knowledgeable with the problem youare trying to solve. This cuts out a lot of researchtime.
  • 11. WebGeekDevCup taghuddle.com/WebGeekDevCupDeveloping Bukas Paladhttp://webpilipinas.github.com/bukaspaladStep 2: Brand- The Brand should be something quite easy toremember and related to your idea. Your branddistinguishes your app from the otherapplications, so make sure you have a good one.
  • 12. WebGeekDevCup taghuddle.com/WebGeekDevCupDeveloping Bukas Paladhttp://webpilipinas.github.com/bukaspaladStep 3: Minimum Viable Product- If your time is limited, always go for the MVP, butmake sure to keep a list of all the features youwant to implement. This gives you a clearroadmap on where your application is going.
  • 13. WebGeekDevCup taghuddle.com/WebGeekDevCupDeveloping Bukas Paladhttp://webpilipinas.github.com/bukaspaladStep 4: Schedule- Scheduling is critical in a situation where time islimited. DO NOT FORCE YOURSELF TO FOLLOWAN UNREALISTIC SCHEDULE. Create one that suitsyour skills and stick to it as best as you can.- The schedule is there to be your guide; it is notthere to be your master.
  • 14. WebGeekDevCup taghuddle.com/WebGeekDevCupDeveloping Bukas Paladhttp://webpilipinas.github.com/bukaspaladStep 5: WORK- Be smart about working. If you find yourselfdoing something for more time than it’s worth,find a faster way to do it or drop it.- Stay Focused and Keep Shipping
  • 15. WebGeekDevCup taghuddle.com/WebGeekDevCupDeveloping Bukas Paladhttp://webpilipinas.github.com/bukaspaladStep 6: Improvements- If you can, always use a VCS – it makes it easy tocreate a stable and a improvements branch.- If there is not enough time for theimprovements branch, then just switch to thestable branch
