Our History

Cafecito Web Studios LLC is a professional web design and development company founded in Maryland in 2020. Although we are a new local company in Maryland,  we’ve been doing software development for a long time.

 

Our Founder

As the sole owner and founder, Gian A. Alvarez Blanes brings over 15 years of Web and Software Development experience. He attended the University of Puerto Rico, where he graduated with honors and a bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering with a focus in software engineering. He later continued his studies at Johns Hopkins University in Maryland, where he completed a master's degree in Computer Science with a major in Software Engineering.

He is also a certified Professional Scrum Master and a strong proponent of agility in order to achieve trust and customer value.

Our Agile Approach

By developing mutual trust with our clients, we aim to be come their go-to technology partner. We are committed to excellence, and to always be on the forefront of technology and innovation. As part of our development, we follow industry best practices in order to achieve the highest possible long term value to our customers. We take pride in every product we deliver to our customers! In our experience, the Scrum agile framework embodies many of our core values, and as such, we use it to deliver products to our clients. Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland developed Scrum in the 1990’s and since then it as become one of the industry’s best frameworks for developing, delivering, and sustaining complex products.

Product Vision

Help our customer define a Product Vision that clearly identifies the product’s  purpose, what problems it tries to resolve, and who are the target users.

Build a Backlog

Build a prioritized Product Backlog that contains everything known that is needed in the product. We’ll work with you on prioritizing tasks, and will continue to evolve as feedback and priorities are understood.

Sprints

A time-boxed and goal driven Product Increment, where we aim to deliver a potentially releasable product. Driven by the product backlog, we like to keep these one week long in order to maximize product feedback at the end of every sprint.

Feedback

We generally accomplish this via a Sprint Review event at the end of every Sprint. This is a chance to review and discuss the work accomplished during the Sprint, and to incorporate any feedback into the backlog.  

Transparency

We use JIRA to track our product backlog and progress during the Sprints. We believe our customers should have full transparency to our work, and as such we provide them access to view our progress at any time. Achieving mutual trust is important to us!

Delivery

Our goal is to always have a potentially deliverable product at the end of every Sprint, and will continue all the way to the end of the agreed product delivery. But it doesn’t end there. We are prepared to support you with releasing your product to your clients as well as provide ongoing maintenance and support.
