We decided to hire Javier as a consultant in order for him to provide a realistic, strategic vision supported by his experience to an idea that has been “maturing” for more than a year and for which the time seems to be coming . I’m sorry but I have to say. Getting Started we got a lot more out of the meeting than we expected. Okay, a little break from me. I promise that the readers of my blog, if we decide to carry out the idea, will be the first to know about it and will have access before others. Right now I can’t tell you what it consists of here, but it would be cool. As for Javier, don’t think that he has paid me to “praise” him. I’ve been following his blog for a while and he really is a “cool” guy.
The need to test ourselves
Without investing too much Well, I’ll give you some clue. Our idea consists of creating a mobile and web application that would help solve a problem that more and company data more people suffer in today’s society . We could leave it there. From there and from the many questions and reflections that we shared at the meeting, an issue arose that worries us a lot: How could we test if it really fulfills its function with a reduced set of “guinea pigs”? (Masticar!, I haven’t thought of another word other than coballa) .
It is very likely that, from use, many questions will arise that we have not considered and even that the absolute truths from which we start will become partial truths. So, it would be ideal to be able to “test” with a small group of people if our solution is really viable and works as well as being able to mature it both in terms.
Getting Started Of business
Terms of usability and functionality. Maybe in other types of businesses it is. Easy but, in this case, like a bolt of lightning, here I go and say: “ But we can’t spend the Fax List money on developing the application just to test if it would work or not!” . TRUE? How do you check if a bicycle is really useful for getting around. Without creating the bicycle itself? You can only base it on assumptions. That’s when Javier explained the Janitor Technique to me.
What is the janitor technique? This technique involves creating an armor to test whether the robot would work or not. Don’t you need more explanations? Hehehehehe. Applied to our specific case, it consists of developing only the user interface, as close. As possible to what the real application would be like, but without developing. The complicated algorithms that would make it work autonomously .
