As for the development process, at the early beginning, we agreed with the customer to create MVP based on the main features of the devup.estate platform. It covers the initial functionality for the stakeholders. The project was launched into the market to validate its idea and define how the project meets client's expectations.

The MVP was implemented by a dedicated development team, including QA and BA. The development process is driven by the Kanban approach, which includes daily internal meetings as well as weekly meetings with the customer. Daily internal meetings aimed at project reporting, issues, and next steps. Issues were discussed with the customer via slack. The functionality was improved on the ground of the customer's feedback. During weekly meetings with the customer, we showed the project progress, demo version, and corrected further actions and their priorities.
