How do you Successfully Manage a Software Development Project?

By Kane Hooper,

development management rails

A Top MBA Graduate's Experience with Software Development.

My first computer was a Vic20 console (similar to the Commodore 64). It took cartridges as well as had a tape drive. As there was only one game, the only way I could play different games was to purchase a big 1000 page games coding book. For hours I would copy lines of code and save the progress to cassette tapes. You don’t know coding frustration until you have completed 2000 lines of code and the program doesn’t work, though it did teach me the skill of debugging.

Receiving and processing inbound emails with Action Mailbox and Rails 6

By Sameera Gayan,

2019 development rails

The vast majority of web applications these days have some sort of a notification system to communicate with their users. Typically, this is by sending them emails. Given emails are a major part of modern-day communication, application developers try to utilise email workflows for users to interact with their apps.

One example would be: when a user receives an email from an app (e.g issue tracker), they can then reply to that email with a comment and that comment will automatically be added to the app database. This makes the user experience seamless as users now don't have to switch between apps to provide data. In this case, the email client and a ticketing app.

Simple CSS Dark Theming for Accessibility

By Rhiana Heath,

2019 Accessibility development

There are two main types of themes a website or application can have: a light or dark theme.

For example, a light theme could be black text on a white background, and a dark theme, white text on a black background. Most websites just have the one light theme by default, but more and more are adapting to have a dark theme as well.

How structure and process are the most important things we deliver to our clients

By Glen Crawford,

2019 Agile development

I'm going to tell you something I probably shouldn't, since I'm a developer at a software development company (please don't fire me Mikel!): In my opinion, the actual code that we give to our clients is one of the least important things that we deliver to our clients.

I'm not saying that code isn't important, I mean, it's the thing that your customers and employees will end up using. But there are plenty of contract developers that will charge you by the hour who can deliver a thousand lines of code a day. But how do you know that the code is any good? Does it meet your requirements? Are you getting regular releases to a test environment so you can keep an eye on the progress? You need to have a structured process in place in order to even be able to answer these questions, and that's what I mean by process being more important than code.
