Can we talk about the technical debt quadrant?

technical debt

Technical debt. A term you all are all too well familiar with. And in the course of your career, you might’ve encountered some form of it or the other.

job fair

If the weather is anything to go by, we can with 100% certainty say that Job Fair doesn’t always have the mercy of weather gods. Last year we got scorched because of the hot or “lit” atmosphere. And this year, we swam through the rain and floods to get to our booth. But we are […]

generalist

Sometimes you were born to be a generalist. Yes, it’s amazing to be great in your field, but dabbling in other things can be way […]

How to run a project in a software development process

software development

As a software development company, you encounter so many diverse projects and each one is unique. But each approach to projects is somewhat different and has its own set of rules. As we said, it’s never going to be the same. In time, though, some development companies design certain processes and approaches in their projects. […]

How to approach legacy apps migration

legacy apps

Okay, you got that unpopular task – to get your hands dirty with pretty old, legacy apps and code that probably nobody wants to look at. And what now? You can cry, whine and blame your boss for that decision or start getting the job done without excuses and complaining. Whatever your choice is, that […]
