(This is a crosspost from an article I wrote @ https://medium.com/jumbo-tech-campus) Ideally our frontend solution is a unicorn that eats rainbows and poops butterflies. In reality it’s often a piece of software reliant on other pieces of software that all have the potential to break for whatever reason, relaying that problem to our customers. We […]
(This is a crosspost from an article I wrote @ https://medium.com/jumbo-tech-campus) At Jumbo, we’ve started to scale fast within a short amount of time. E-Commerce is not something we do on the side anymore. It’s part of our core. It’s who we are. We’ve started scaling the digital landscape hard. And like children, when you grow […]
When you are making big changes to your current stack, or even start with developing an entirely new stack, you’ll immediately hit a familiar discussion. What technology will we use. Some choose to take an ostrich approach by sticking the head in the sand and pretending this isn’t a relevant topic. Usually this means that the […]
It’s easy to see the relevance of knowing where you are in space, but sometimes it’s good to reflect where you are in time.

This is my attempt to do so.
A couple of blog posts ago we’ve set up a basic build-line, in particular for TypeScript. In this post we’ll get our hands-on again and apply some automagic stuff for doing BDD and / or behavioral-testing on our builds.
I am convinced that a compliment that I have for someone else, isn’t mine to keep. We often keep our praises and compliments for someone else for ourselves. Sometimes they are shallow, like seeing that a female co-worker has made an extra effort on her hair today or someone bought new shoes. But sometimes they run deeper, like appreciating the time someone has taken to educate you on something or be thoughtful of your private situation.
Generally, testing is perceived as boring, time consuming and ‘expensive’. This is also the first question business people will ask when you propose it. ‘Fine, but how much does it cost?’. This article should give you some sort of a hand-hold to determine what it might bring you and if the time is right.

I’d like to share some good resources I use to educate myself. There are so many good books, tutorials and talks out there, and I think it’s good to start a reference. Our technical little world has grown well past ‘little’, and hunting for new information can be quite the challenge. Why should we all dig for the same gems.
Running a service oriented business isn’t the same as running a product oriented business. There’s a major difference and over the course of time I’ve learnt where the differences are when it comes to resource tracking, and how that may or may not affect your business.
