Maxime is at the idea stage. He has extensive experience as a manager and is deeply interested in nature, more specifically the benefits of being in touch with nature, that’s why he’s undertaking a project to bring more plants into people’s lives. While he is testing his hypothesis and interviewing future customers, he is wondering how to get started with his product without having to invest in personalized development.
Marie already has a custom-built product. While she has a growing ecosystem, she’s wondering how to deliver a brand new application with more functionalities. She already knows how much it costs to develop a custom application, and for this second one, she would prefer a more economic approach.
Matthieu already has a development team specialized in virtual reality. He needs to centralize certain information on a backend solution, but he is struggling to find a developer able to provide a cost-effective solution.
Daniele has already outsourced the development of her first Web platform. She is wondering if she can really sell and grow this platform with an external development team.
Peter has already started the development of the first version of his app, but he is wondering if his developer is really suitable for the project. His developer doesn’t like sharing a lot of the details of his work.
Like many other startup founders, this student is about to invest in his first product. Hopefully, a Web agency is going to provide him a fair price and develop his application. But what happens if a competitor asks them to develop a similar app? Can the Web agency use my source code for other projects?
Benjamin has already developed the first version of his product with some freelancers. But because it requires a higher level of expertise which the freelancers have underestimated, the development of his solution went wrong.
Aurelien was first working as a freelancer for the CEO and is now becoming an associate and taking on the CTO role. Currently closing their second round of funding, they are hiring two developers to accelerate product development.
Vincent has already developed a Web platform where users subscribe and share their experiences with professionals. While some users love his concept, others struggle understanding it. Vincent would like to improve the customer experience to get more clients onboard and reduce the churn rate or the number of paying customers that the company loses per month.
Joel and his cofounder have already developed the first version of their product. They are now tackling Version 2, and are considering outsourcing some of the development to a Web agency.
Tatiana already has a first version of her solution. She is now conducting meetings with large companies in order to sell high-ticket access.
Joel and his cofounder already developed the first version of their product. They are now developing their Version 2, and are considering outsourcing the graphic design to improve the user experience of their app. The question they ask themselves is, how should they organize the development so that the designer and the developer could work effectively together?
Jerome and his cofounder already developed the first version of their product. They are now accelerating the business side of things and are wondering if they should consider getting their external CTO—the director of the Web agency that developed their solution.
In the previous video, we talked about the advantage of cloud solutions versus server hosting. But life is not that easy, especially when it comes to software development. To take full advantage of a cloud solution, an application needs to be tweaked for a bit. And that is where I would like to introduce the concept of a stateful and a stateless application.
Sacha and his cofounder already developed the first version of their product. They are now undertaking the Version 2 of their development and are considering moving to Amazon Web Services (AWS) as their cloud hosting solution.
