We already discussed the introduction of Mobile First. On this post we will talk about the Mobile First Design Phases. If we decide to take a mobile-first concept, consider whether we’re going to move to a completely developed desktop platform that can be answered in planning and enforcing the design plans. Resting on the workflow and aims are, we may layer the desktop design in with the application design, when finished creating and testing the application form.
For the DevOps organization, they need to be aware of the importance of observing earlier and frequently. Nevertheless if they are not in the DevOps organization and considering to take a Mobile First approach to design and develop the application, observing earlier can help them to streamline the deployment procedure for both the mobile and desktop variation of the platform.
These are the Mobile First design phases:
1) Planning and Vision Crafting
In this phase we will do some research and plan the functionality, design and purpose of the apps. We will combine, organize and structure a plan for what issue the app will fix, who the market will be and what are the main functionalities.
2) Technical Assessment
Evaluate the system that the application can depend on. For example like what platforms the application is built for or how the application sources its data. Having true understanding of the systematic element that will build the base for the application to live on is crucial in this phase.
3) Design and Prototype
Use a set of ideas on paper and change it into a visualized and real representation of what the application can accomplish in reality. When designing we need to take into consideration the user experience and mobility to ease the mobile user.
In this phase is usually where the coding for the application starts.
During the test phase, we may go on to automate tests, manually test, release a beta or find a group of app users to gather some review for the application. We begin to monitor the application in this phase because it can provide some feedback so we can improve the apps performance.
In this phase the apps can be released to the public after a series of successful tests and been monitored closely.
For the final phase, monitoring gives insight about the apps performance, availability and the functionality. So we have to validate that the application and the desktop version are bringing the apps objective.
