"We work with Cherrypick on an internal web application solution for our firm. Cherrypick built the entire product from scratch, features were ready according to schedule with high-quality code and also with robust security (we asked a 3rd party to evaluate both). I highly recommend Cherrypick for any tech company looking to boost their R&D throughput or interested in developing a new product from scratch."

"We have been working with Oded and the team for almost 4 years now on some of our top projects.

"Oded is a Hero! A unique combination of a great person to work with, a real professional in mobile, fully committed and engaged with the projects and deliver awesome outcome. It is a pleasure working with Oded."
Yuval Ben-Itzhak - CEO at Socialbakers
We have been working with Cherrypick for the past 2 years and in that time developed a great partnership.
From the first days the level of commitment was evident, even on the onboarding phase, and they still keep it that way.
It seems that there is no task too small or too big for these guys, from starting new projects, learning and implementing new technologies, writing detailed designs for the tasks at hand to daily bugs, UI fixes and monitoring.
I strongly recommend working with Cherrypick, it may start as some help for a small side project but with their experience and dedication can grow to take part in core company flows.
Gadi Gomez - Full Stack Team Leader at Medtronic (NYSE: MDT)
"Oded is a very skilled professional, fast learner, sharp developer and a very cool guy! He handled a complex project in a tight timeline with excellent results, improved the project architecture and provided good advice from his knowledge and experience. I highly recommend Cherrypick for any mobile development project. When you want to get something done - Cherrypick is your best choice"

PRODUCT SPEC DESIGN
Committed to Quality
When we start working with a new client, the first thing we do is try to learn about their business and product. What are the main features? Who is going to use what I'm about to build? Which features are important for the first release and what can be part of future versions? We prepare the product spec design (or edit an existing one) and now we can move to the next phase.
PLANNING / TIMETABLE
Set The Plan
Now that we have a product design, we can go ahead and start to break it into programming tasks, with each task assigned a time estimation, eventually providing a high level time estimation for the whole project.
Loads Of Experience
With more than 10 years of experience coding in almost every conceivable language, We use the planning and start working it task by task. We put a lot of emphasis in high-quality code. Our goal is to make sure our code is not only functional, but also maintainable for long-term use. We want other programmers to easily understand the code and to easily make changes and additions when needed.
UNIT TESTING / CI / CD
A high quality SW project must have loads of unit-testing in place to make sure the code is working as expected when programmers making changes to the code. CI (continuous integration) puts an automated system in place that can test, build and deploy daily (or after each push) your project. This enables you to build and/or deploy a new version in just one click, from every computer.
IN HOUSE TRAINING
Improving The Skills Of Your Team
One of the things I really love in my work is to help my clients hire (or utilize existing) young and talented engineers. I prepare a training program for them so that in about 1-2 months they are ready to take on a meaningful role in the developing team. I mentor the junior engineers every day I'm at the office and make sure to do code review and give feedback so they can improve their skills every single day at work.
FOR THE COMMUNITY
We love to help the developers community by contributing some of our code via open source projects. Also we love to publish our ideas and share it via our blog
