How we do it & Why that matters
Our software development practices distinguish us from other software development firms. We practice eXtreme Programming. XP is heavily influenced by Lean Manufacturing philosophy and puts Continuous Feedback front and center.
XP also comes, unlike Scrum or Kanban, with technical practices like Test-first Programming and Emergent Design. These ensure the team can deliver thoroughly tested product features on a weekly basis without losing momentum as the project matures into a more complex solution.
Early & Continuous Feedback
To create the best possible outcome, we deliver software in weekly increments. That way, you can take the early product to end-users, collect feedback and react to changing requirements before it’s too late.
Value Priotization & Emergent Design
To reduce the risk of the project being a failure, we focus on the most complex aspects and the most critical features first. That ensures you have something useful – even if time or budget runs low towards the end of the project.
Test Automation & Continuous Delivery
Automating repetitive tasks like testing and deployment keeps the costs low so that you don’t have to pay more and more while getting less and less as the complexity of the software grows over time.
Continuous Refactoring & Test-first Programming
Cleaning up the code and keeping it maintainable is built into our development process and is not an afterthought. That avoids having to rewrite the software after a couple of years („buy cheap, buy twice“).
Whether you WANT to reach as many people as possible or NEED to due to legal requirements, our software products are accessible (a11y) and adjust to different screen sizes (RWD) by default.
A modern Tech Stack
We know from experience how important it is to keep an open-source tech stack up-to-date, but also that it’s not wise to jump on every trend right away. Our informed technological and architectural decisions are based on project needs, development costs, and maintainability.
Here’s our preferred tech stack:
- Backend: Serverless, Express, REST, Swagger, Node, RDBMS, NoSQL
- TDD: Cypress, Testing Library, Jest, Storybook
- DevOps: AWS, Docker, Kubernetes, CircleCI, CI/CD, GitOps
