Web development process by Syndicode
The processes for website development and web app development are quite similar. The difference lies in the relative complication of web applications compared to websites.
Summing up, we can describe the web development process as the following:
- Requirements are gathered during the discovery session
At this stage, we understand the niche, business values and plans of our client. With the information received during the discovery session, and proper research, we define a tech stack and product’s features to be implemented.
A wireframe is a layout of a web page that demonstrates interface elements on key pages. While wireframing we design a web service at a structural level. This is the best way to establish the basic structure of a page before visual design and content is added.
After the basic elements are created and the client’s opinion is taken into account, we will include in our design all the necessary elements that are specified in the requirements. Ruby on Rails UI prototyping allows us to test the product intuitively and find bugs that might affect the user experience. Finally, we will make sure that the mockups reflect your company, your product, and the services that you are offering in the best way.
Here come backend and frontend web development.
Here we provide software testing along with QA. Software testing is the process of checking developed software for any mistakes or bugs. This helps to validate and eventually verify the product as to whether it is ready for the market. QA (quality assurance) enhances the quality via improvement of the development process and testing enhances it via finding bugs.
This is a continuation of the collaboration with the client to improve, modify and update web product after delivery to correct faults and to improve performance.

Web development cost by Syndicode. What is the price of web development in Ukraine?
First of all, in Ukraine you can save up to 50% of your budget on software development simply because hiring software developers in Ukraine will cost you much cheaper than hiring a specialist from the UK, the US or Australia. Why? Taxes, regulations and local level of expenses. Living in Ukraine will cost your developers less than living in western or central Europe. But the living conditions, food, infrastructure, and banking system are very good.
Getting down to business, Syndicode works in two engagement models:
Syndicode will provide you with a dedicated team of skilled engineers or even with a single developer with proper expertise and level in website development. Specialists working under an outsourcing contract have a flexible schedule and work on their territory. By performing work under the outstaffing contract, employees are subject to the customer’s employment schedule, usually, have their jobs on the customer’s premises and have job descriptions.
In this case, the cost of working on your project will have the price is as simple as salary + taxation + profit margin + office overhead.
Team extension has two models to sign a contract about – explore the differences between IT outsourcing and IT outstaffing models.
In this engagement model, Syndicode will take full responsibility for developing your product. Our engineers, designers, and managers will go through all of the custom software development lifecycles and provide you with clear specifications, timely implementation, caring support and 24/7 maintenance.
In this case, the cost of custom web development will depend on a project’s complexity and can be estimated with our hourly rates.
