Do you really know your end-user?

By Ildikó Tuck,

It’s an all-too common scenario in meeting rooms: “our users like this…”, “typically our users do that…”, “the average user this and that…” But do you really know who’s behind that screen?

Back in the 1940s, gynaecologist Robert Dickinson and sculptor Abram Belksie created two figures - Norma, and Normman - depicting the average white American man and woman of that time. Their study was quite impressive! They measured 15,000 people between 21 and 25 and, based on that, they created the two sculptures. In 1945, the Cleveland Health Museum sponsored a contest to find a real life woman whose measurements matched Norma. Out of the 4000-ish applicants, not a single one matched!

How to craft a feature the right way

There are two key processes that developers often struggle with when implementing project features: Planning and Deliverables.

Before touching the codebase, it is important to create a development plan since this will be our guide to developing the feature. This plan should contain any notes as well as an approach for solving each feature section.

Working on inherited code bases

If you are a freelance developer or working for a project / consultancy company like us here at reinteractive, there is a good chance you'll be working on inherited codebases that were created by other developers/agencies. Unlike greenfield projects, existing codebases come with uncertainty and a lack of background knowledge that you normally get from a project created by you or your own company.

To make this situation even more challenging, these projects usually come with tight deadlines so there is limited time for you to fully understand the codebase.
