2023 marks a significant year for 3DStreet, made possible through our talented community of contributors both volunteer and paid. Zade Agency fits in the latter category as a software development team for-hire based in Ukraine. Over the past year Zade emerged as a major boost to our development productivity and I wanted to share how their contributions have helped 3DStreet in a critical time for the organization.

The Challenge for 3DStreet

To meet our timeline for a public beta launch of 3DStreet Editor in 2023, we faced several challenges. A primary concern was the gap in React expertise among our existing development team. While we are skilled in various aspects, existing React knowledge was crucial for implementing deep and rapid modifications to 3DStreet Editor which is a heavily modified version of the A-Frame inspector.

Additionally, as a self-funded project we have very real budgetary constraints making it imperative to optimize every resource.

Zade's Solution to Boost React Development

We found Zade through a direct personal referral via our designer Daria Dombrovska. Zade immediately brought a wealth of React knowledge through their team of both senior and junior engineers, filling the crucial skill gap in our team.

As a self-trained software developer myself, I worked directly with a senior engineer at the beginning to confirm our architectural approaches and details of our tech stack. I also worked with our account manager to agree on the use of GitHub Projects, issues, and PRs to manage our working relationship.

For day-to-day tasks I create GitHub issues that are prioritized in Projects and tackled via a junior engineer who is mentored by the experienced staff. Even as a junior engineer, they have way more experience in React fundamentals than I do given my rather myopic focus on A-Frame and three.js development over the past decade.

2023 Highlight: Launching 3DStreet Cloud

One of the most notable achievements in 2023 was the launch of 3DStreet Cloud, a React application using Firebase Firestore on Google Cloud Platform.

3DStreet Cloud is the foundation of the growth engine of the 3DStreet Editor product -- it is the system that allows our users to collaborate on safe street designs and fulfill our core mission.
