MOST COMMON QUESTIONS

How long does it take for a pice of software to be developed?

As every piece of software is different, the short answer is: It depends on your requirements. We strongly recommend you to work with UX Experts and Software Architects to get Functional and Non Functional requirements very clear before going into the Development Phase.

What are the risks?

Instead of talking about the risks, here are some factors for successful outsourcing:

  • Working according to the plan – Must have a Scrum Master
  • Demand management – Get the sales & marketing guys involved and keep going with the MVP mentality
  • Strong communication between outsourcing and outsourcer – Slack, MS Teams, Google Meetings, etc; make use of good coominication tools
  • Long term projects are more likely to succeed than small ones – that is right, 1 month projects are more likely to be over budget than long term ones

How much will my piece of software cost?

Once you have the requirements clear, we can then talk about costs. We can assist you with a time-boxed Discovery Phase, Prototyping and MVP definition.

Does Techifide provide hosting?

We work in partnership with Cloud Services such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud to deploy our applications. So, we do not directly host web applications.

What timezone are Techifide's developers working at?

We work with Brazil. Brasilia’s time varies from -2 to -4 hours during the year. This allows a healthy minimum of 4hs daily overlap from 12 pm onwards.

What is the technology stack?

We don’t like to talk about a single technology stack but about our skills. The technology stack will depend on the software requirements.

Below is a list of what we are good at:

  • React
  • Vue.js
  • Angular.js
  • Node.js
  • HTML
  • CSS, SCSS
  • Bootstrap
  • JavaScript
  • jQuery
  • AJAX
  • Web API
  • C#
  • SQL Server (database)
  • ASP.NET ( Ado.Net + Stack Management Techniques)
  • MVC / Asp.Net Core
  • MariaDB
  • MySQL
  • ElasticSearch
  • MongoDB
  • Cassandra
  • Postgres DB
  • GraphQL
  • Python
  • TensorFlow
  • Natural Language Processing
  • Docker
  • Linux
  • iOS
  • Android

Where are Software Developers located?

Our developers are located in Brazil. It is almost impossible to have a neighbourhood full of outstanding developers. Brazil is not a small country, so although some of them live close by, they are spread around the country and work from home.

How does Techifide make sure developers know what they need to do?

We recommend our clients to have a Solution Architect, a Scrum Master and a Product Owner based in the UK. This small team ensures Stories and Tasks are written accordingly. Through Agile Boards, the Scrum Master ensures that tasks are allocated to our developers.

Is software fully tested by Techifide?

The entire team is responsible for quality. Our Software Developers need to make sure their code is fully tested. Our QA team makes sure everything is as per the script, but we try to involve our clients as much as possible in testing. No one is better than you to know how your application should work.
