So what are the key skills needed for enterprise software development?

Software Developers HK

When going through the process of commissioning bespoke software its crucial to understand who your team are and their key skills. For a project to run smoothly it is important to be confident in the skill and professionalism of the app developers completing the project. While all teams are different there are some skills you should be on the lookout for when evaluating local app development firms.

This will help ensure that you are employing a team who have the necessary knowledge and expertise to produce a product that functions as intended. You will want this team to be as efficient as possible with planning, and to select the best architecture for each given component.

It is important to kick off a project in the right way, setting up a good foundation for the future. Poor planning will typically result in a sub-optimal outcome. A sentiment that is especially true in the software industry. Over at Red Sky Digital Hong Kong we employ many different strategies and tools in order to help us get things right from the outset. Our team typically operates within predefined parameters that serve as the foundations for each app design.

It is important during development that we have a good understanding of our clients existing IT systems, and any hardware that they wish us to work with or integrate. This will help us assess whether these components will result in limitations on a target programs development. At a fairly early stage we will determine the particular framework we will use going forwards for the software and how it is likely to slot in to the wider picture.

It’s one thing knowing how to write code in a specific language, but a separate challenge altogether putting all that code together into a single functional piece of software. Making sure that you have the right senior app developers, with a sharp eye for quality to oversee aspects such as infrastructure and platform choice is key. Our team here at Red Sky Digital will ensure that each, and every aspect of the project is thoroughly considered. We have the experience and talent to capture all the requirements and translate those into a functional and useful end program. We are familiar and experienced with use of API’s and middleware and able to safely integrate new systems, with legacy platforms.

A great software design should incorporate all the key elements described above, as well as include these core attributes:

  • High Performance
  • Modular Architecture
  • High Security
  • Optimal UX Design

All of this Red Sky Digital can bring to your project and it is what makes us a successful software development company.

Development languages used for bespoke software projects

As the software development sector in Hong Kong expands year on year, the number of languages and frameworks in which an application can be developed also grows. Many languages are developed to be used for a specific role or task, with others to be used more liberally. Our project managers will evaluate the options available and select the most suitable language and framework based on your individual software requirements.

The, majority of projects that we take on involve the use of more than one single language. They can often require more than one platform. Websites are a very good example, as often the coding for the page may be in a particular language, but the page may also host interactive elements, like JavaScript. There may also be additional plugins and other software running in the back end that provide extra features.

Development of enterprise software involves a broad knowledge of many different coding languages and understanding how to best use them. Even senior developers frequently come up against languages they have little experience of, due to the large number in existence. Typically, software developers here in Hong Kong will learn a single language, from which they can branch out and learn others.

Most software that we develop is written using an “event driven” language. Event driven languages rely on decision statements and loops to perform a specific function within the software. Essentially these contain a catalogue of instructions that the code can reference from a set of master code. This makes smaller and more common tasks easy to execute and very fast. These elements are used to carry out functions inside a wider software application, like create lists of orders or query databases. These kind of event driven programs are generally written in languages such as C# or Java.

This is just a brief summary of how we can use different languages and frameworks to deliver an application or product.
