Magento 1.x – Community or Enterprise?

Magento is my number one, when it comes to recommending an e-Commerce solution. From among a whole range of out-of-the-box (more or less sophisticated) e-Commerce engines, Magento comes with the greatest room for development. Needless to say, in a competitive market it’s the key aspect of every on-line sales strategy. Sooner or later, if only […]

Those of you who are interested, I direct to the first part. In the second part, I stay with the project “fast car”, but I change the approach to agile. […]


We are building a car #1 – waterfall methodology

Waterfall is the most-used project management approach in the IT industry. In short, it consists of dividing the project into phases, to which we attach the input data and describe the final intermediate (e.g. analysis, implementation, tests). At the end, of course, we get a finished product. The above description looks quite good. We have […]


How much will it cost?

This is by far the most frequently asked question that I encounter while talking to clients about running a project in AGILE methodology.
