Development on CS-Cart Using the Agile Method

This method implies working without a technical task, which allows the client to change project requirements after each new iteration

About Agile Development

Agile development is a flexible approach based on iteration and incrementation. The process is divided into short cycles, often referred to as sprints, typically lasting from 1 to 4 weeks. Each sprint begins with the definition of specific tasks to be completed within that period.

Active interaction between the development team, designers, and the client is a crucial part of the Agile method. The client can propose changes and refinements throughout the process, allowing for quick adaptation of the website's functionality to changing requirements.

Key Principles:

The project is divided into short cycles, enabling quick results and adjustments to plans as needed.
Adaptation to Changes
The flexibility of the method allows for changes even in the later stages of development without significant cost.
The client always has an overview of the current state of the project and can make corrections.
Regular Reviews
After each sprint, result reviews are conducted with the client to refine future steps.

Agile Development on CS-Cart

Developing a CS-Cart website using the Agile method involves working without a detailed technical specification. This allows for changes to the project's requirements after each new iteration. It is challenging to determine exact costs and deadlines upfront, but approximate estimates are considered, including potential risks.



Director of store
I was searching for a web store developer and came across the CS-Cart platform. I reached out to its creators. Various representatives of this platform in Russia started reaching out to me. Among them was the Makeshop team. They explained everything in detail, making it easy for me to understand. I decided to work with them. Together, we worked on and created an online store. I constantly come up with tasks that are necessary for our business, and the team easily brings them to life. There are plenty of ideas in my head, and there is still much to do with Makeshop. My rating for our collaboration is a solid five.

LLC "Blood Group" has a positive experience working with the studio for consulting services in developing modules for the CS-Cart marketplace. Throughout the project, the studio has proven to be a responsible partner, delivering high-quality work on time.

Anastasia Belykh
Public Relations and Communications Manager at MosOptTorg -
We have been collaborating with Makeshop for several years and have implemented multiple significant and interesting projects. Most recently, the development team created two modules for us. One of them involves synchronizing with another website with complex functionality. The other is an internal program module for our employees. Tasks were defined, and several good solutions were proposed. Then, implementation followed according to the specified deadlines. Communication was maintained throughout the entire period, adjustments were made, and all processes were refined. As of today, we continue our partnership with Makeshop and rely on their professionalism in their work.

    Do you have a great idea for your clients, but the functionality is not available out-of-the-box in CS-Cart? That's not a problem for us! We will help you outline your ideas in a technical specification and then proceed to develop, test, and add the new functionality to your website. Remember, anything is possible! The more complex the concept, the more interesting it is to work on ;-)

    For me, creating applications or websites is not just a job. It's a desire to create something that you would want to see every day and return to.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do you work on an outsourcing model?
    We do not work on an outsourcing model. We are ready to consider a technical specification or specific tasks and work on them at a fixed cost or using the Agile methodology.
    How can I verify the effectiveness of a programmer's work? I'm concerned that they might just run a timer and not work.
    If we are working on a fixed estimate, we provide the hours upfront and do not change the cost for you. How many hours a programmer spends on a task is our concern.

    If we are working with Agile, we discuss and agree on the planned time commitments with you before the start of the sprint. In this case, it's more accurate to look at the overall project time rather than individual tasks, as the actual time spent on different tasks may vary, but on average, it will correspond to the planned time.
    Do you provide a warranty for your work?
    We offer a 6-month warranty period after the project is delivered. Despite the fact that we develop with the logic of CS-Cart and always make changes through modules, and we never modify the core directly, it is impossible to guarantee the correct functioning of the module with certain changes. Therefore, the warranty only covers errors found in our modules.

    The warranty is void in cases where:

    The website has been updated and the logic of built-in modules has significantly changed.
    Modules were installed that were not available at the time our product was released.
    Third-party specialists have worked on the website.
    All of these actions can disrupt the module's functionality and may require the development of a patch.
    Can I have exclusive rights to the development I've ordered?
    It is possible, but the hourly rate would be higher. Please discuss the details with your manager.
    Does CS-Cart have an open source code?
    Yes, CS-Cart has open-source code. The code is fully open for modifications, and if desired, changes can be made to any part of the site. However, it's recommended to follow common CS-Cart development practices to avoid issues when updating.
    How can the platform be extended? Can new functionality be added to the site?
    Extending the functionality of a CS-Cart site is our daily work. The platform is extended using add-ons or modules. If you need new functionality, you'll need to develop a custom module.
    Why do developers like CS-Cart?
    Developers appreciate CS-Cart for its well-thought-out and structured development logic, which makes it easy to understand and modify both the core platform and third-party add-ons.
