The beginning of the New Year is a great moment to look into ourselves and resolve some changes in our lives. Many people make typical New Year’s resolutions – they promise themselves that they will finally start exercising and lose few pounds or that they won’t be drinking that much coffee. We are not big fans of such promises, because they are easily forgotten around February. What’s a better idea then? Simply read a good book and inspire yourself to take real actions, not in the first months of 2017, but in the long term. Here are our 4 best books in the subject of self-development – if you haven’t read them yet, it might be a great moment to do it!
Waterfall – what is that?
Waterfall is the project management approach, where software development process is sequenced. It usually consists of 8 phases – conception, initiation, analysis, design, coding, testing, implementation and maintenance. When each phase is completed, project team can proceed to the next phase.
We brag about around 80,000 graduates in IT each year in Poland, although some may say that universities can not keep up with the rapidly changing market’s needs in scope of the new technologies. And yes, our IT market might be less mature than Western markets, but Polish developers are world-known for their proficiency in general technical knowledge. Did you know that Polish IT professionals get the highest ranks in international programming contests (Microsoft Imagine Cup, Google Code Jam, TopCoder, the Central European Programming Contest (CEPC), every year? We aim high in our commercial experience – Polish development shops cooperate not only with world’s best tech startups located all around the world, but also with bigger players on the field.
Choosing the right programming language for your business
Regardless of whether a large company is introducing a new IT project or a startup is building its first MVP, choosing software engineers is one of the most important decisions any team will make. This decision will determine a project’s success or failure. Today I explain the reasons why we believe Python is the best language of choice for us.
