Satellite Collaboration

Rather than maintaining a staff of developers in this company, our approach has been to create a network of developers around the country with a broad set of skills. As projects come up, the person in charge of the project reviews the network to find the right set of members to make up the team to work on the project.

Each of the team members are either individual contractors, or companies of developers, that are used and paid for only the duration of the project and for the time spent. This simultaneously reduces each company's/contractor's costs while increasing the types of projects that can be taken on.

Any resource in the network can bring a project to the group — there is no hierarchy of resources — and a resource owning and managing one project can also be a team member on another project.

Project Resource Matrix

Large organizations have used project/resource matrices to allocate their resources across a set of projects. We have adopted that approach and applied it to satellite collaboration. For any given project, resources (developers) are chosen based on their availability and matching skill set forming a project team.

Each resource determines how many projects to which they can be applied, and the result is a matrix like the one seen on the right. The black outlined circles indicate which resource is managing the project, and the other red circles indicate assignment of a resource to a project.

How do we do it?

Our Process

1. Planning

2. Design

3. Develop

4. Launch

Obviously the icons above describe a vast over-simplification of code development, so let's think of them as just decoration. In practice, developing solutions, both large and small, requires an arsenal of skills and approaches that are applied as is appropriate for each solution. That is, one size does not fit all. Two of the more common, and opposing, approaches are Agile and Waterfall.

Taking the Best from Agile and Waterfall

Waterfall is a seqential design process that rigidly goes through a series of steps to develop a design that cannot change during the process. If a design needs to change, the entire process must be restarted, discarding any products of the original work. Agile came about as a way to embrace the inevitability of changes, following an incremental approach by always having a complete solution at any point in the process — starting with the simplest one, and continuously adding more until the final solution is done.

We embrace the Agile approach, but start with as much of a design of the final solution as makes sense before writing any code. This ensures that many of the issues will have been foreseen before starting, while not spending too much time on a design that will ultimately change. The Agile employment of daily testing — unit, functional and integration — keeps us on our path, but we also know that only final user testing will ensure we don't "crash into Mars" because, while each component may test successfully, the ultimate system, without final testing, may have a flaw only seen by viewing the big picture, which means end-to-end hands-on user testing.

We believe our process will provide you with the greatest quality software.
