We are a Symfony development company with more than 5-year experience. Our aim is a high-quality product meeting the customer's needs. We like doing our job well and make sure we have everything needed for that. Location in Kharkov, Ukraine - one of Eastern Europe's biggest centers of higher education and research - allows us to hire highly qualified specialists in computer sciences. It is very important for us to be in the same team with the customer during the development process. Effective cooperation, working in the atmosphere of confidence and respect is the passport to a successfull project. Order and clarity ... are important to get a quality product. We use Agile practices allowing us to control the project workflow and code quality. Test-driven development and object-oriented design are the core concepts we use in our work. The main tool helping us transfer these concepts into the perfect code is Symfony PHP framework. As a result our customer gets a functional, easy to maintain and modify product of hight quality. Also customers have all the information, quick feedback, the ability to make changes and full control on the development process. PERFECT PROJECT A common problem among customers is the impossibility to change the development team. Usually they are forced to work with the same team, because the code can't be maintained properly by any other team. Usually it means poor code quality. We solve this problem with the help of good programming practices. They allow us to write fully maintainable code and give customers the opportunity to change the team easily. But you won't have to, because we already do our job well. We are happy to provide our services to the customers, who share our approach of development with good programming practices. PROJECTS WE LIKE We are the most interested in the following projects: 1) New Symfony based projects from scratch Developing new projects we create a system with flexible and clear architectural design which is easy to maintain and extend. Our aim is to create stable hight loaded products and services. 2) Development and extending existing Symfony projects We are also ready to work on existing projects done with Symfony. Since our aim is high quality products we do code review before starting development in order to evaluate code quality, risks and possibility to implement our practices effectively. 3) Migration (porting) PHP projects to Symfony A number of live projects use old code (PHP4, hand made PHP system, plain php). Supporting and development of such projects gets costly in terms of both money and time. A possible solution is step-by-step migration to Symfony. It allows to get a stable project with fresh architecture based on modern corporate level framework. The migration process is done step-by-step which guarantees functionality of the system during the migration. The practices allowing this are automation testing and refactoring. NEW PROJECT WORKFLOW Projects from scratch are the most interesting for us as we can purely implement all our ideas using full set of technologies and Agile methodologies we have mastered. At the same time project from scratch can cause problems when clearly defining requirements to the product that should be delivered as it is not easy to transfer the whole vision of the customer to the team. Forma-Pro does its best to eliminate all problems that can happen during planning and development of a project. The general workflow for a project includes raw budget estimation, planning to get in sync with the customer concept, estimating, development and release stages. Raw budget estimation. As the very first stage we do a quick raw estimate of the project based on a short customer description. Usually we provide a preliminary range of man-hours that we think will be spent on a project where low and higher limits can be 2-3 times different. This information can be used by a potential customer to estimate a raw budget needed for the project.
