Hello. Welcome to Red Sky Engineering. I wanted to talk to you about what to expect when you start a new project here at RedSky. Over the years, we've worked on several projects and have learned several things along the way. This has shaped our process to give our customers or more feature rich products in a shorter timeline to start things off.

Let's hop in our first meeting with the client and what to expect Here at Red Sky, we view all projects we take as a partnership. This means we strive to understand the ultimate vision or goal of the project before starting when we first meet with the client. We want to understand the high level purpose of the project. We'll want to go over any existing designs, key business requirements, processes and flows We'll also want to explore ideal roadmaps milestones and the ideal timeline of the project.

Our experiences tell us that when we start planning with the end in mind, the project is more efficient and much more likely to meet the project timeline and budget. Right after the initial meeting with the client, we dive into our notes and enter the design and planning phase of the project. Here our designer and project manager will work together to create an initial wireframe and design these initial wireframes and designs act as a foundation for the project.

And gives us a place where we can iterate with the customer to ensure we're meeting all the business requirements and needs throughout the process of the design and planning phase. We hold a daily stand up to go over completed tasks, current tasks, and any blockers we're experiencing. This meeting ceremony will continue until we reach the end of the project.

Once the design has been approved, we will begin tasking out each of the features and create user stories to organize the sections of the project. Each individual task will have detail in the feature covers and in time estimated to complete the task. This gives us an idea of how long each feature or flow will take to complete allowing us to accurately create a project roadmap and project a launch date.

From here, we will start our development process and start your project. Hope this was helpful. If you have any questions, you can contact us at
