We have expertise in a myriad of tools and platforms. Here are just a few...
When we talk about a product we include websites, web applications, mobile web applications, IOS applications, and Android applications.
At Get It Built we focus first on getting your MVP off the ground. MVP stands for minimal viable product and it refers to the practice of selecting the most-essential features and launching your product earlier rather than later. MVP is a cost-effective approach to software development. You create a working product that embodies your core idea for testing and user feedback and avoid the drag of unnecessary features.
The biggest cost of building a product comes from the variety of skills needed to put all the pieces together. Typically, you need a designer, product manager, frontend developer, backend developer, devops engineer, and someone in charge of quality assurance. As a founder it can be overwhelming, not to mention expensive, to recruit and manage a technical team if you are new to software development. We are here to help reduce these costs.

This is the guide to the look and feel of your product. It includes colors, fonts, images, themes, in some cases templates, or similar products as inspiration. Learn more here.
This is critical to understanding the functionality and flow of the product. This is an “unstyled" version of the product. This defines pages, features, positioning, etc. Learn more here.
These are other connected services that make your product more useful. Common examples are Google Maps, Facebook Login, PayPal, and so on. Learn more about APIs here.
When the style guide and wireframes< come together we add “transitions” and create a visual representation of the final version of the product. You can click through it and get a feel for how it will work. This enables you to “walk through” the site or application. This step is optional if the goal of the project is creating a demo or proof of concept. Learn more here.
Unlike websites, web applications typically have functionality that allows users to do something useful. Most products include some sort of web application to allow users to work with them on their browser from any location.
This terms refers to mobile-friendly applications that look good and work properly on smaller screens. Sometimes web applications are developed solely for mobile use, but most often they are adapted from their larger versions.
If the plan is to build the product, we combine the style guide and wireframes to make a semi-functional frontend-only product. Frontend development refers to the creation of the visual and interactive aspects of the product and excludes the “brain” and connection to “real data.”
After we have the visual and interactive aspects of the product ready (the frontend), we can add functionality so it works with real data and users are ready to derive value from it. Simply defined, the backend refers to the programmed functionality, data storage, data analytics, APIs, and other types of “thinking” the app has to do.
What we have to do to make the product available for people to use. For web applications this is done through third party services, and for mobile applications it is done by publishing to the IOS App Store or Google Play Store.
Short for development operations, this is often a person or group of people vital to getting a product ready to launch. Some of their responsibilities can include hosting, database management, caching, testing frameworks, monitoring, etc.
