It is important to develop a program in such a way that it is up to requirements and works well because costs associated with fixing a buggy program or software are huge. Reworking faulty software makes up almost 40% of the final expenses and every year around 312 Billion Dollars are spent fixing messy software after they have been delivered to the client. So a good developer is the one that can shape and plan your software from start to the end and this makes the selection so important.
You can consider the following tips to hire a great Java developer:
The first step is to outline and define the problem that the new software will address or solve. This could be as simple as a line or could be as detailed as a full page memo. A rough outline of the project will help throughout the hiring process because when you will know what you require, you will be able to decide what you want from the developer. Important factors to consider here are Skills set, Preliminary budget and project staff management.
Short listing Developers:
Carry out a detailed search on which developers do the type of work you require and prepare a list of them. Networking Groups and Business bureaus are good places to start but you should carry out an internet search as well. Almost all of the Software Development Companies outline their services on their websites. Once you have a number of developers being searched, shortlist them picking the most suitable of them, Read reviews, go through any press releases, check their blogs to see if they are keeping up with the latest technologies and advancements etc.
Setting up Meetings:
Conducting personal meetings are a good way to consider whether the Software developing firm in question would fit with your company’s corporate culture, this can also be done through Skype in case of an overseas developer. This assessment should be focused on what the developer in question can offer for your project, Discuss their standards, assess what “Good Enough” means for them and what are their working procedures? Also consider factors like Security, IP Protection and Testing.
Now is the time to finalize the candidate from the short list you created. Check through Social media profiles or complaints filed by previous clients on websites like Better Business Bureau. You can also talk to their previous customers and inquire about them or look up for reviews by users of their previous software. After ruling out companies you don’t want to work with rank the finalists on the basis of expertise, the body of work and team composition in order to get to a decision.
Reconsider your Choices:
The Newly Selected Developer should have open lines of communication through a dedicated point of contact or at least provide you with one when you ask for it. There should be a thorough and professional discussion before getting to a final estimated price or a formal contract if you feel rushed at this stage discuss this with your point of contact.
These steps should help you when making a decision about hiring a Java Program developer for your software needs.
