We are a small team that is about to start developing a localized version of a successful US web app in Korea, using RoR.
Our question is: What process would you recommend we use to go about developing the app?
Should we start with the data models? The views in HTML and then code them? Take a single feature, develop it and then add additional features as necessary?
A few more details about the project:
- it is a web app for small business owners
- it includes the usual crm-reporting-dashboard-user admin-document mgmtfeatures that most small biz apps tend to have
- team size is initially 2 people: a programmer and a designer/CSS guru (just one coder)
- experience level is medium. good knowledge of Git, Ruby, Rails and XHTML/CSS, less experienced with deployment issues. this is the first project of its kind that we are doing together as a team
