Delivering successful end-to-end enterprise -scale Laravel projects puts the developers that build them at the heart of organisations’ operational success. While some developers may find a niche working on pure code, increasingly developers play a business-critical role in helping to educate clients, project owners and wider stakeholders on the implications of what they want to develop and build - from pitch stage to final sign-off (and ideally, ongoing development relationship). Including the ever-present danger of just adding new features and building up technical debt.
Fulfilling this role requires a variety of essential project delivery skills that go far beyond delivering great code and into explaining the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of what’s being developed. Helping to manage expectations and minimising any nasty surprises.
This requires being able to communicate effectively with all types of stakeholders from Board members and marketers to designers to technical specialists; to understand the importance of accessibility, sustainability and user experience in first class compliant products; to put in place robust processes and documentation that provide maximum transparency, and to help ensure business strategy is continually aligned with the project roadmap.
This Essential Skills Series will set out best practice from the Cyber-Duck team’s in-depth experience of working in multidisciplinary teams delivering user-centred, accessible, enterprise-level digital products, and a decade-plus of successful Laravel projects, as Laravel’s first official UK Accredited Partner since 2012.
All Masterclasses incorporate an interactive Q&A session, allowing you to ask the experts on the shared challenges you face.
