Steps of Developing a Web App

One of my favorite companies to watch, listen to, learn from, and use products by is 37 Signals.

I find their cloud products awesome to use (I’m an avid user of Highrise, for example). Their books equally inspiring.

Just recently, one of the designers for 37 Signals, spoke at the future of Web Apps conference in London.

In this talk, he described a five step process for creating a real-world web app:

  1. Model
  2. Screens
  3. Designs
  5. Live Code

While I would have to admin that nothing is really super unique, they way Ryan and 37 Signals works is a great study in getting things done.

Hope you enjoy the talk as much as I did:
