Why do companies outsource Python development services to you?
Python has become a very popular programming language in recent years, as it is robust and versatile, allowing developers to create a wide range of applications and software solutions. Compared to other programming languages, Python is often seen as simpler to read and easier to learn, making it a great choice for many teams.
Regardless of its popularity, not every company has in-house teams capable of building applications in Python. So, many companies choose to outsource Python development to an experienced agency who can help them take advantage of the programming language’s benefits without having to build out a full in-house team themselves.
Outsourcing Python development provides you:
Access to skilled Python developers: When teams outsource Python development, they unlock access to a talented pool of professionals with a deep understanding of the programming language. Companies can tap into the expertise of skilled developers to ensure that their Python projects are completed with the highest level of quality and efficiency.
Cost savings: Outsourcing software development can help companies save on their development costs by avoiding the need to hire and train full-time employees. This allows companies to focus their resources on core business activities, while still achieving success with their Python project.
Quality assurance: Outsourcing companies with a high degree of Python development expertise will be able to ensure that the software project is built with the highest quality Python code standards. Companies can rely on the expertise and experience of the developers to ensure that their software development projects are delivered on time and within budget.

Why use the Python programming language for web development?
Building usable web applications in a weekend is the dream of startups and many business leaders. Using the Django framework, which was built explicitly for rapid prototype development, is the closest you can get to realizing this idea. Django is a web application framework that takes care of many of the standard functionalities to build both secure and maintainable Python web applications. The Django community is exceptionally strong with documentation and long-time support packages of all kinds, like:
- Django admin automatic, model-centric, back-office data admin interface
- Django REST framework, a powerful and flexible toolkit for building Web APIs quickly
But there are risks to going this direction. If you cut the wrong corners, you can be stuck with your “prototype development mistakes” for years to come. That’s why for some projects, a more minimalistic approach to Python web application development is to use Flask or FastAPI Python frameworks. Both are suitable for microservices architecture. FastAPI has asynchronous functions and automated generated documents which are more detailed and complete than the Flask framework.
FastAPI is built on Python 3.6+ standard type hints and JSON Schema (used for validating JSON data structure), OAuth 2.0, and OpenAPI (which is a publicly available application programming interface). All of that makes Fast API validate web applications data types even in deeply nested JSON requests. As FastAPI is based on the ASGI standard, it's very easy to integrate any GraphQL library also compatible with ASGI.
FastAPI provides the much-needed upper hand when it comes to speed and asynchronous calling in web development, especially combined with message queues like Kafka or Redis. This allows you to break up your web applications into smaller chunks that communicate with each other. This can make it simpler to scale the Python software development.

How do you manage the scope, budget, and timeline for a Python project?
Our Python web development company applies Agile Outsourcing techniques in the management of every project. Specifically, we focus on collaborating with our clients to ensure top results. Scope, budget, and timeline are at the heart of project management. Our Python software development services always start with:
1. Estimation: Phase 1.
We review your project’s basic details, including any specific expectations and product requirements. We take into consideration the product’s target users, purpose, and what issue or problem it is intended to solve. We will then provide you an approximate initial figure for your Python project.
2. Estimation Phase 2.
After an initial approximate estimate is provided, we gather the whole development team, including scrum masters, every Python developer, and project owners, and review the business idea and the details of the future product. By doing this, the team can better identify the required work and budget.
This agile approach makes budget management a shared responsibility. The Product Owner manages the backlog, the sponsor agrees on the budget, and the team delivers the backlog and spends or manages the sprint budget within agreed constraints.

What processes do you follow for software development?
At SoftKraft our Python development team is dedicated to delivering products with real business value. We start every new partnership with an initial discovery, research, and estimation phase to ensure all project requirements are clearly understood, then we move on to the planning phase, and then into well-managed, front-end development sprints.
When outsourcing Python development with us, you can expect your project to follow these steps:
1. Initial discovery, research, & estimation
We listen to understand what you want to build, what features your product should have, and what bottom-line results you want.
2. Workshops & planning
The results-driven, design thinking approach we use at SoftKraft is a catalyst for the iterative software product development process. It combines the best software product development methodologies. Get ready for an intense design workshop that will clarify your business idea and help us build a much better product.
3. Development sprints
Software development life-cycle is a structured and repetitive process that is divided into smaller parts - sprints. Each iteration covers a part of the project scope that is deliverable in a short and controllable period of time. Following agile methodology best practices, each sprint ends with a demo of a working part of the product, which opens user acceptance testing.
4. Stabilization & release process
Software development is a complex process that needs a stabilization phrase. During this stage, our software development agency focuses on perfecting every area that makes the final product meet the business agility goals. When the stabilization stage is over and we have positive user feedback from the first users, we can deploy the first version into the production environment.
5. Support & aftercare
After a successful product development, we can continue to provide support. We can monitor the performance and we are ready to fix any issues based on the SLA or a different arrangement.
Depending on the client and project needs, we set the rules for support and technical improvements. We set the error handling rules, issues priorities, time of our reaction, and the amount of time that we should book with our developers monthly without sacrificing product quality.

What kind of testing processes do you have in place to ensure quality?
At SoftKraft we have a comprehensive testing process in place to ensure the highest quality of every software solution we build. This process includes both manual testing and automated testing.
Each Python developer is experienced in manually reviewing every feature of your product. They put the product through a rigorous set of tests to ensure it works as expected and meets your requirements. Our testers are also responsible for writing detailed test plans and test cases, which are then used to execute the tests.
For automated testing, we make use of the Cypress framework for end-to-end tests. This allows us to quickly and accurately test our product from the user's perspective. We can write tests that navigate through our application and interact with different elements, such as buttons, forms, and links. We also use Cypress for integration tests, which allow us to test how different components of our application interact with each other.
Overall, our testing process is designed to ensure that our product is of the highest quality and meets all of our customers' needs.
