Digital project management

Our core discipline is the project management of interactive development using Scrum methodologies. We use an Agile methodology in order to deliver working software, just-in-time.

Interactive development

We're experts in developing for platforms from iPhone and Android to applications and digital outdoor, using languages from Ruby, PHP and Python - and delivering websites to advertising.

User experience design

User experience (UX), information architecture, taxonomies and wireframes give our projects rock-solid foundations on which to form the best interactions.


Digital Project Management

Formed in 2008, Rockstar Developments is an interactive and digital development agency based in London EC1. Our background is firmly rooted around an Agile project management methodology [1] for managing interactive and digital projects.

The key advantage with an Agile approach is that functional websites or applications can be delivered at an advanced stage of the project as opposed to longer development times where a final delivery may not have the benefit of reviews in line with user stories or client priorities. An Agile methodology allows for a flexible approach whereby requirements and development can be easily modified at key checkpoints along the project timeline. One such Agile methodology is known as Scrum [2].

About

We're an Agile interactive and digital development company based in London, EC1 in close proximity to Silicon Roundabout, a popular location for many creative and technology businesses. Our project management professional accreditations include Certified ScrumMaster and PRINCE2 Practitioner. You're in safe hands.

Why Agile?

An Agile approach to managing projects allows for evolving requirements and solutions, rapid delivery of high-quality deliverables and an approach aligned with business and customer needs. Typically, this results in time and cost savings for the business and a more focused product for the customer.

Agile methods and project management

We use Scrum, an iterative, incremental framework for managing complex work, to break larger tasks down into manageable time periods. This allows teams to prioritise, deliver quickly and respond to emerging requirements.

Where does user experience design fit into this?

User experience (UX) is used to define the user stories or scenarios which drive Agile development, address the features that meet users' needs and steer the overall design through carefully considered specifications or prototypes.
