Our Development methodology
As an innovation-driven company, our methodology seamlessly integrates cutting-edge technology and agile practices to swiftly adapt to market shifts while ensuring exceptional customer satisfaction.
The Fundamental Aspect of Effective and Transparent Software Development
The development process of our company is based on rigorous key practices. We adopt the Scrum methodology, an agile project management method that promotes collaboration, communication, and transparency among all members of our team.
Scrum Methodology: Promoting Collaboration and Communication
The Scrum methodology forms the foundation of our development process. By utilizing an agile approach, Scrum encourages close collaboration among team members and enables transparent communication at every project stage. By breaking work into iterations called 'sprints,' Scrum facilitates priority management, real-time goal adjustments, and ensures complete visibility of project progress.
Multidisciplinary Teams: Diverse Expertise for the Project's Benefit
Each Scrum team consists of members with diverse skills, including developers, testers, designers, and other experts. This multidisciplinary approach ensures that all the perspectives and skills required are present to address project challenges. The synergy among these members promotes innovative solutions and well-informed decisions.
Product Backlog: Detailed Planning and Flexibility
The Product Backlog, an ordered list of features to be developed, serves as a roadmap. It is constantly reviewed and adjusted to reflect the changing needs of the project and the market. This flexibility enables the team to respond quickly to new information and keep the project in constant alignment with the company's objectives.
Structured Meetings: Continuous Monitoring and Adaptation
Scrum includes regular meetings such as sprint planning, sprint review, and retrospective. These meetings structure the development process, facilitate communication, and provide opportunities for adjustments along the way. The sprint review allows the team to showcase achievements and gather feedback from stakeholders, ensuring that the final product aligns with expectations.
Performance Metrics: Transparency and Continuous Improvement
The analysis of metrics and performance provides a clear view of the project's status and product quality. Tools such as progress charts and velocity measurements assist the team in evaluating its productivity and identifying areas for improvement. These data are crucial for future planning and optimizing our methods.

What are the Sprint stages?
During the development phase, developers focus on preparing unit tests and executing test scenarios to ensure code quality in line with established standards and metrics. Each sprint in the development phase follows the following steps:
After each sprint, the work completed will be deployed to the test environment for testing by the testers.
Our Development Process
Our Commitment to Reliable Software Solutions
Testing practices hold a central position in our software development process. We employ a combination of manual, automated, and unit testing to ensure the quality and reliability of our solutions.
Our specialized testing team conducts thorough exploratory testing to ensure the proper functioning of the application and the compliance of all its features with the required specifications.
We use automated testing tools to ensure the stability and performance of the application. The automated tests we conduct are reproducible and enable swift detection of errors and bugs.
Our developers perform unit tests to ensure the proper functioning of each module of the application in isolation. Unit tests help to quickly detect and rectify errors in the early stages of development.
By incorporating these testing practices, we provide our clients with reliable and high-quality software solutions. We also ensure ease of maintenance and maximum scalability of the application to meet their future needs.
To ensure the smooth progress of project development, it is necessary to distinguish between the various working environments prepared by the DevOps engineer. Here are the different distinctions:
Backend Development Environment
Frontend Development Environment
Reserved for testers, it allows the testing of various functionalities and should be similar to the production environment
Pre-production Testing Environment
Compliance with Norms and Standards
Adhering to security standards is essential to ensure the safety and data protection in the development of IT solutions. This reinforces customer trust and ensures regulatory compliance. At Euro Tech Conseil, we are committed to upholding these standards and safeguarding our clients’ data security.
Compliance with GDPR Standards
“Adhering to OWASP Standards
ISO/IEC 27001 Standards Implementation
Implementing Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
KPIs are essential indicators to measure the success of IT solutions development projects. They allow you to gauge project progress, the quality of deliverables, project profitability, and aid in strategic decision-making. At ETC, we recognize the significance of KPIs and integrate them into our development process. KPIs are divided into three categories:
- Sprint Burdown
- Release Burdown
- Cycle Time
- Cumulative flow
- Flow efficiency
- Code coverage
- Code stability
- Code Simplicity
- Code churn
List of Reports
To ensure the smooth progress of project development, it is important to distinguish between the various working environments that will be prepared by the DevOps engineer:
Daily meeting Report
MOM (Minutes of Meeting) with client
Sprint Validation Report
Team meeting report
Code cross review Report
Code review by a technical lead
Technical debt Report
We prioritize transparency and the quality of our work to ensure customer satisfaction and adhere to industry standards. Our commitment to quality and transparency enables us to provide a service that meets our clients’ expectations.
