The DjaoDjin team provides professional services to build your product on the DjaoDjin platform and integrate it with a subscription-based session manager.
Following the DjaoDjin guidelines, a project timeline goes as follow:
1. Towards an Initial Quote
Either in person around a cup of coffee, or on the Internet by emails and video chats, we discuss together your needs, aspirations and decide if the DjaoDjin team would be a good fit for your project. For any questions, please, feel free to contact us.
Our skills and interests include:
- Python/Django Coding
- Software Security
- Distributed Systems
- Long-term sustainable businesses
The notes gathered during our discussions are formalized into a Quote. This document will go through multiple iterations until you and the DjaoDjin Team sign on the price and deliverables.
A Quote is structured in 5 sections:
- Introduction: Objective and Contact Information
- Process and timeline Expectations (boilerplate)
- Deliverable Dates
- Use Case Scenarios
2. Towards a Minimum Viable Product
The web application is developed and deployed in two phases. First there is a one-time bring-up phase of a functional product on the web. The cost of the bring-up phase is fixed, payable half up front and half at sign-off.
A Sign off document officially closes the bring up phase. The sign off validates that all use case scenarios in the Quote were implemented and tested.
Sign off contains:
- Completion of Use Case Scenarios
- Coverage Report
- Miscellaneous Notes
- Physical CD with code and database dump
Changes to the use case scenarios that were negotiated during the bring-up phase are added as miscellaneous notes to the sign off. The DjaoDjin team hands you off a physical CD with the source code and database dump at the time of sign off for backup purposes.

3. Long-term Support Agreement
After sign-off, the monthly maintenance charge for hosting, security and backup, either on a mallspace or streetside plan is due every month as long as the product is live on the DjaoDjin platform.
Agile development retainer
After sign-off, a (renewable) retainer can be paid for incremental changes to the product. Updates are are recorded and charged on a hourly basis, taken out of the retainer.
The Djaodjin Team aligns its incentive to the success of its clients so the time to investigate and fix 500 errors that pop-up live in production are never charged.
At the end of each month covered by the long-term support agreement, the DjaoDjin Team will send you a statement for the hours taken out of the retainer for development work.
