Benefits of outsourcing backend development with the Boosty Labs team include:
Our company has completed dozens of projects of various sizes using various frameworks. All of our backend developers have the skills they use to build fault-tolerant and high-load server applications. We have been supporting and improving some projects for many years, proving that outsourcing backend development can be effective. Feedback from our clients directly indicates that an experienced remote team can work faster and better than an internal development team.
Key factors affecting outsourcing costs:
Recommendations before ordering:
Designing the system architecture
If you want to ensure that the development of the project goes as smoothly as possible, do not skimp on the design of the system architecture. Determine if a monolithic structure is enough for the system or is it better to choose a microservice structure. The expansion of functionality and an increase in the load with an increase in the number of users depend on this.
Choosing a technology stack
Choose the right technology stack: the programming language and framework determines how easy it is to create a digital product. Engage experts to select development tools. Pay special attention to the database: the development team must design, implement and document it correctly.
Test automation should not be delayed. Finding bugs often takes longer than fixing them, so automated tests will save you hundreds of hours in the future. Remember about data security: during development, most likely, test data will be used, so discuss the information security class with the contractor.
Communication process between front- and back-end developers
Organize the communication process between the front- and back-end developers. Adopt processes for agreeing tasks and milestones. If you synchronize the work of these two areas, the project is more likely to meet the deadline. Of course, this will not be necessary if you hire a full team from an outsource company.
The complex and layered structure of modern web applications requires delineating the areas of responsibility of developers. In programming, it is customary to divide the work of a project into two parts: client and server.
The frontend refers to that part of the web application with which end users interact. The backend is responsible for the server side, where the work with data is implemented. The front-end developer does not need to understand how the server functionality works, and the back-end programmer may not know the details of the client-side implementation. There are programmers who are able to create a complete application, such specialists are called full-stack developers.
The program code that is responsible for user interfaces, as a rule, makes up a smaller part of the site. The backend is responsible for storing, receiving and transmitting data, calculations, as well as business logic and rules by which the site operates. These system components can be powerful and functional without having user interfaces.
For clarity, let's present an application screen where you can view the profile of a registered user. Like, for example, on social networks. The frontend is responsible for the appearance of this screen, which tells the browser where the user's photo will be located, and where the name and status are. But it is the backend that determines which data to take from the database for a specific user and passes it on for display on the site.
When transferring tasks to a frontend performer, it is enough to provide design layouts. Outsourcing the development of the backend component is a more difficult task, it is advisable to take into account the subtleties of the design work.
To get the desired result, it will take an effort to describe the business requirements of the project. On their basis, experienced performers will be able to correctly describe the functional requirements and draw up a technical task.
