What was the scope of their involvement?
In terms of new functionalities, iTechArt worked on another project, a file-attachment feature. It worked similarly to managing an Instagram profile, and allowed for uploading and cropping images and posting them through a RESTful API as profile avatars.
What is the team dynamic?
I managed the developers directly, and we communicated via Skype. I generally entered tickets in GitHub, and usually synced during local nighttime. iTechArt was also available between 9 and 10 AM Pacific Time as well, in case we needed them in the morning. We interacted on a daily basis. I received status updates and answered questions regarding our RESTful API.
How did you come to work with iTechArt?
iTechArt was the number one choice at the time, so, when I needed some temporary resources for the team this year, I went to them. They had many resources available, so it was easy. I accepted 2/2 of the developers I screened, so the quality was good. The developers were ready within a week, but the contract details took a bit longer.
How much have you invested with them?
Confidential. The cost was reasonable. Every hour of work seemed to be productive.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started the current project with iTechArt at the end of March 2017, and continued for 4-5 months, until mid-August.
