Budget Time For Approvals

11/29/22

My first tech project as a non-technical founder was a deals site, like Groupon. I hired a dev team and it turned out to be an over budget, low quality disaster. I’ve talked about it before, but for the purposes of this article, I’ll just say that I remember being frustrated at the development team Read More >>

The Importance of Code Review | Non-technical Leader Tips

11/10/22

I’ve been on big teams working for nationwide brands where no one is formally responsible for code quality. It was a nightmare. Everyone was writing on the same codebase and one bug would halt everyone’s progress. The end client didn’t know the difference because it was all hidden under the pretty user interface, but it Read More >>

Introducing Support Plans

10/14/22

I’m excited to announce our new maintenance and support contracts! Over several years of working with many technical and business leaders, I’ve found that codebases that get too stale become increasingly risky.  Fresh Code Is Better By “stale” I mean codebases where no one does any of the following things regularly: builds, updates, tests, audits, Read More >>

Tips For Testing Developers

10/13/22

The best way to see if someone can write code is to have them write code. Therefore, we test everyone!  The trick is to make the test as similar to your every day work as possible. Don’t send them through a list of multiple choice questions on the finer points of JavaScript. In my experience, Read More >>

Filter Candidates Well

10/6/22

We use a combination of cultural fit, confidence, and reputation. Cultural Fit Cultural fit varies based on the company, team, and project so there isn’t much value I can add for you here, except that you need to determine what your values are (e.g. Quality, Value, Clarity) and find people who share them. It isn’t Read More >>

Finding Good People Is Hard

9/19/22

Unemployment in web development has been very low and wages have not been stagnant. To make matters worse, Google and other tech giants are literally printing money and inflating salaries. Good news is that advertising is only a small portion of the dev industry and working at the giants involves mindless, soul sucking work. So, Read More >>

I reached out to Buink after finding Ben’s name in a local developer/consultant listing in 2017, and I have to say, it has been an absolute pleasure to work with Buink. Ben consistently understands not just the development task laid in front of him but the business application behind the task. I’ve... never felt more comfortable with a development team than I do with Buink. I truly feel Ben and his team are integral partners in the success of my business.read more

I could not recommend Buink Web Development more highly. Ben and his team have recently developed a budgeting app for me (both web and IOS). I have had the opportunity of working with them for over a year and I am extremely happy with the results.I would say that the biggest plus for me is that I... trust Ben completely. From the very first, Ben has helped me make decisions that were in the best interest of my company. I have never felt like he is taking advantage of me. Ben does his best to keep the whole process very open and upfront. I have really appreciated that.I tell people all the time that I love my developers. And I do. I'm very happy that I chose to use Buink to develop my apps. It was the best business decision I could have made.If you are looking for someone to develop a website or app, I strongly suggest choosing Buink Web Development. They are fantastic!Marilyn Ference, President, Defend Your Money, LLCread more
