How we work
With the project having tight deadlines, it was important that Brainspin and Forbytes used an approach that included efficient information sharing, regular feedback sessions and demonstrable progress in delivering outputs. All of this needed to be incorporated into the overall structure of the project as well as ensuring that Brainspin’s, client’s business objectives were fulfilled. Brainspin’s project manager and Forbytes’ COO quickly established processes for working successfully with a dedicated offshore development team.
Tools we use in our collaboration
Slack for team-wide messaging and new feature deployment notifications
Skype for daily internal team meetings and catch ups
Zeplin as a collaboration tool between the designer and the frontend developer
Jira for requirements management, project tracking and time estimates
What we do
Based on the designs and website vision developed by the creative team at Brainspin, Forbytes implemented responsive pages using the SMACSS methodology (Scalable and Modular Architecture for CSS).
The use of SMACSS enabled the development team to structure the CSS style sheets in such a way as to make life easier for future development and maintenance.
Project Manager at BrainSpin
“We found Forbytes’ code to be uniform throughout the website’s structure. They maintained regular communications and meetings to make sure everything was going well. The team was easy to work with. They took the time to get to know us at Brainspin and understand our business”.
