Although I had already done quite a bit of work with the guys, it did take us a few days to finalize the contract with all of the milestones and specs completely hashed out. It was making me anxious because I just wanted to get cranking on the project, but I knew it was worth it to predefine as much as possible so both sides expectations would be met. Thankfully the team shared my desire to clearly layout the terms of our contract and begin working in the meantime so there wasn’t any issue there. All in all I am happy with the terms and feel confident in the team’s ability to execute on my vision. I finally feel that the project is underway and can’t wait to start seeing progress soon. The first milestone is a week away so pretty excited to see the application begin to take shape.
