Now that we’re nearing almost 3000 Coolbluers, our days are filled with meetings, projects, and the occasional ping pong battle. But what does a working week look like? To find out, let’s pick the brains of a Coolbluer to find out what it is they really do. Our brand new Team Lead, Stef, is here to tell us about his first week.
Here at Coolblue, we can choose our tools from a range of technologies. A while ago, our team started moving from Microsoft MSTest to xUnit.
Although the code change was fairly simple, the build pipeline was tied with the MSTest framework, ignoring the xUnit tests. Between the requests to the deployment team to alter the team’s deployment pipelines, Nathan challenged us to use Cake.
Another blogpost from one of our engineers Sander Knape in the category Personal Opinion. Sander wrote about Infrastructure as Code for automated security in the deployment pipeline. Enjoy!
You’re probably wondering, what do we mean by Personal Opinion? As people in Coolblue have and are allowed to have a personal opinion, we like to give a stage for Coolblueans to share technical writings and blog posts here about things people are learning, doing and investigating outside of Coolblue. On quite a lot of occasions, these technologies, standards and methodologies are actually brought into the company! First up is Erik Heemskerk with a blog post on Logging and Metrics. Enjoy!
Penalties. In a soccer game, they should be a done deal as it is a relatively simple thing. The ball is at a free range at 11 meters with just one goalkeeper in a very wide goal. Simple right?
