One of our success stories: designing and programming a startup's MVP
Oct 2019
The beginning

Baydir was working on IT projects for ready-to-wear retailers when he decided to found his Fashion Tech startup, Modetika 

Mar 2020 The demo

Baydir needed a demo to present his concept to clients and investors, and got in contact with Blackhill

Apr 2020

The kick-off

We translated the initial mockup into 12 user stories, proposed a stack (MERN: Mongo, Express.js, React, Node.js) and staffed one fullstack developer to code with our CTO

End of Apr 2020

The first delivery

Baydir sees the progress everyday thanks to continuous delivery and after each 2-week sprint, he adapts the roadmap with us

May 2020

Integrating the AI algorithms

We staffed one backend developer to integrate the data coming from the AI algorithms and to prepare the publishing of the website (analytics, SEO and hosting)

The Modetika.com MVP (Minimum Viable Product) is online since October 2020

 

We code step by step, applying an Agile methodology

1

At the beginning of the project

We invest time to understand our client’s vision of the product: identifying main Users and User Stories

2

When starting a new sprint

We prioritize and detail the tickets of the upcoming 2 or 3-week long cycle called sprint

3

During the sprint

We deliver and follow the progress in a daily manner and get regular client feedback

4

At the end of each sprint

We make a sprint demo and update the global vision of the project with the latest progress and lessons learned

Well defined inputs and tools to maintain clear and concise communication
