Many projects run into long-term problems because communication about the requirements was not conducted effectively, and this can be the fault of the person giving directions or the person receiving directions.


Let’s say you see potential in giving your business an online presence or you have an idea for an app that can add value to you and the online community – the professional you need to contract or hire to achieve such a goal is a web developer. Your web application will be made up of 2 parts – your part, and the part of the developer you will contract or hire. As you can see, although the second part will be the responsibility of the developer you choose – choosing the wrong developer for your job is going to be a mistake on your part as well. That said, this article is going to discuss your roles and the roles of your developer before, during, and after the implementation of your idea.

[b]Before The Implementation[/b]

This is the phase where you tell your web developer about your idea and it is very essential that your web developer understands all the details clearly. Many projects run into long-term problems because communication about the requirements was not conducted effectively, and this can be the fault of the person giving directions or the person receiving directions. Once assured that you and your developer are clearly on board with your project requirements and details – the next step is to punctually provide the developer with all the material and information needed from your part in the construction of your web application. By material and information from your part, I mean images/videos and information that will be displayed to people using your application once it is developed by your developer. Although developers can use dummy text also known as lorem ipsum to design the layout of your web application and use dummy images to achieve similar goals, having your actual content available leads to better UX (user-experience) and is highly recommended.

[b]During The Implementation[/b]

This is the phase where your developer applies his/her technical expertise to turn your idea into a functional and secure web application. During this phase, a professional developer will keep you updated and involved to make sure the web application is unfolding according to plan and is also aligned to the needs of the people who will be using your web application on various browsers and devices. This part is largely the web developer’s responsibility and should run smoothly if you chose a qualified developer for this part.

[b]After The Implementation[/b]

Finally, you and your developer have both played your parts reliably and now your web application is launched by your developer for the online community to use. This is the phase where your web developer should take you on a tour around your web application with tutorials on how to manage your web application as the admin for example and other related orientation to place total control of your web application in your hands. This is also the phase where any maintenance issues should be addressed and long-term support discussed especially if the web application is heavily an online business such as an e-commerce site.

[b]Conclusion[/b]

Turning your idea into an online reality is a great opportunity, but it also comes with challenges that you need to be in control of by understanding that it takes your part and that of the developer you choose to implement your idea.
