Advisory Hours Offered by the Appcelerator Support Team:
You and your development team can connect one-on-one with an experienced Application Developer. If this is your first cross-platform application on Appcelerator Titanium, we recommend using advisory hours at the beginning of the development process. The support engineer will work with your team to help architect and design the app. This will ensure a smooth development cycle, a performing app and maintainable code. If you are further along in your development cycle, you can leverage your Advisory hours for three types of reviews:
Basic Code Review: This is a standard review of your application’s code. It usually takes 4-8 hours to complete. When complete, the team will present any code design issues, architecture issues or deviations from Titanium best practices, along with recommendations for remediation.
Extended Code Review: The extended code review is a more exhaustive review of your app. In addition to a detailed review of your code, the team will run your app and look for any performance or resource bottlenecks that might not be evident in the code.
UI/UX Code Review: Our advisory team includes experienced designers who will provide your team relevant feedback and suggestions for improvement regarding user experience and graphic design of your mobile application.
Give your application developers the benefit of real world application development training, with the voice of the expert to help guide them along in delivering the next app (or apps) you needed yesterday.
