Continuous Integration & Delivery
In an effort to inspect and adapt, software should be released to production-near environments as soon and as often as deems feasible. This prevents serious misconceptions and helps find bugs early on.
Keep an eye on your production deployments using state-of-the-art monitoring and messaging technology.
Every aspect of business can be tackled with design methods: Formulate assumptions and requirements into hypotheses, use prototypes of varying granularity to test them, then review and evaluate your findings and iterate.
Build - Measure - Learn
Value scientific methodology to incrementally and iteratively refine your product outcomes. Experiment with different product variants and employ root cause analysis to see the bigger picture.
Accept the work-in-progress state of your products and develop highly dynamic, innovative and adaptable solutions.
Using a best-tool-for-the-job policy to optimally support various business cases, I'm proficient in a variety of web development and software engineering techniques, including but not limited to
- the Ruby/Rails stack,
- ECMAScript 6 and modern frontend development,
- CSS3 and preprocessors,
- service-oriented architectures,
- progressive web apps,
- single page applications (SPAs),
Native and Hybrid Apps
Modern development tooling combines the processing power and comprehensive nature of native mobile stacks with the established processes and flexibility of web development environments. The times of balancing the inefficiency and management overhead of multiple native projects against the performance shortcomings of HTML5/JS-only apps are finally over.
Today, the most common use case of multiple frontends being served from a common backend API, while assets are presented via a CDN and authentication is done by one of multiple OAuth providers establishes new patterns of app design, architecture, security and development workflow.
Internet of Things
Recent years have seen a dramatic hardware price drop, as well as a tremendous simplification and democratization of the access to embedded, pervasive physical computing platforms capable of gathering sensor data and driving simplistic user interfaces. The combination of many of above-mentioned technologies and techniques opens the world of IT to many related disciplines, such as architecture (think smart cities), art, sociology, mobility, environmental science and many more.
