We have a startup and it is our first experience. We want to create a mobile application and its website implementation.
We have 3 main parts:
- Mobile application
- Website application
- A server that can work with both of them
We are 4 people and one extra man can be added if needed. 2 people will work on the mobile app and 2 will work on the website, the server and graphic designs.
My question is: How can I manage this team to work parallel together? I mean how to control work progress? How long should the deadlines be?
Let's consider we want to create a UI for Android and I think it takes 5 days. Can I say "Jack, go to your home and write this part of the project and I'll meet you next week with Android UI?"? Or must I break it up into 5 mini-projects (first day: design layers, second day: write menus, third day: write tabs, etc.) and say "Come here everyday and we can check the work progress together."?
Sorry if they are stupid questions, but maybe you had them in your first project!
