Our top 5 topics in august by the tech practice circle
Summertime = vacation time. And we also need a well-deserved vacation. Nevertheless, some subjects were surfed and shared by our developers. This time, topics from the following areas are included: Open source, Rocket science, Tailwind, Chrome DevTools features, and Quality Assurance.
Use Tailwind Without Tailwind In the article, Helmuth highlights the benefits of using tailwind, or what you can learn by taking a closer look. Tailwind is not part of our preferred tech stack, but it’s great to have the opportunity to look over the edge. As you can imagine, the reaction and attitude regarding Tailwind have been somewhat divergent. That’s the great thing about being able to disagree.
Chrome Devtools Recorder Recording user flows is a totally exciting feature. Not only can you record and replay flows to debug your application, but you can also export them and share them with others to track the exact error. This improves bug descriptions immensely. You can also export them with the respectively installed plugins in formats of common testing and performance tools. The individual recorded steps can of course be manipulated and additional ones added.
“uncurled” by Daniel Stenberg Daniel Sternberg writes about his experiences from over 30 years in the open source world. The inventor of Curl and open source enthusiast of course makes his work freely available and invites collaboration by using GitBook. Recommended reading for all who are interested in open source that wants to get an insight into his attitude, projects, what he thinks about funding, and how the open source world has changed over time.
5 Effective Steps to Align Testing with DevOps Our Quality Assurance team is already top notch and I read many things that are already implemented at Mercedes-Benz.io. Nevertheless, the article gives some interesting impulses on how to set up your QA team and your processes.
I would also like to draw your attention to the articles published on our blog by our esteemed colleagues.
Ricardo Brilhante has written an excellent text about AGILITY: IS FAILING AN OPTION? I don’t want to foreshadow how he answers this but we have “The Failure & Innovation Award” in our company for a reason.
We also have another part of the ARTICLE WRITING series, this time with a part about: FEEDBACK AND HOW WE INTEGRATED IT WITH A DEVELOPER </STYLE> Have a read and learn how to deal with feedback while writing and how we support that at Mercedes-Benz.io.
