“For every dollar spent to resolve a problem during product design, $10 would be spent on the same problem during development, and multiply to $100 or more if the problem had to be solved after the product’s release.”

You should expect to spend about 8-10 hours a week.
How many projects will I have?

You can cancel your subscription anytime via your account page. Your subscription will continue until the end of your subscription period, at which time your plan will not renew. A prorated refund is not eligible for this program.

Most of the recommended industry standard tools have a 15 to 30-day trial or a free account with some limitations. We recommend trying them out first through a trial period. More guidance on software will be provided when you sign up.
