It proved to be an efficient solution for real-time applications or the cases when a fast and scalable environment was required.

Choosing backend technology is one of the most important decisions that every CEO and CTO have to make. It determines how fast a product can be shipped to market, what is the total cost and how big pain maintenance will be.

At Netguru, we’re continuously trying to optimise our internal processes. One of our processes consists in balancing the skills of individual employees when composing project teams, which ranks rather high on the headaches-per-hour scale. As such, we needed to get smart about it.

How Good Habits Improved My Test Automation Skills

I have to admit that during my nearly one and a half year at Netguru my automated testing skills have not always been consistent. I struggled to make my tests modular, easy to write and easy to maintain. Nonetheless, learning some good DRY habits, Page Object patterns and reducing the amount of multitasking significantly reduced the effort I have to make in order to write manageable and clean tests.

When you’re thinking about the most successful startup hubs in Europe, the first cities that come to your mind are probably London or Berlin. The tech scene in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) isn’t far behind, though. Warsaw, Budapest, Tallinn and Prague – to name a few – are home for many renowned companies that have made it to the international market. Prezi, a popular presentation software that allows users to present their ideas on a zoomable virtual canvas, is a case in point. Very few people know, however, that it was founded in Budapest. Just like all the promising startups we list below. All of them have the capability and resources to expand dynamically, so chances are they will grow successfully on the global market.

As Ruby on Rails developers, we have used AWS for a long time at Netguru. Amazon’s services such as S3, EC2 or RDS made our work not only easier and more convenient but also increased the security of many projects. A few months ago, during re:Invent 2016, which took place in Las Vegas, Amazon launched a new service, and we think we are all going to fall in love with it. The new service is AWS Lightsail.

There are times when certain ideas become relevant so quickly that it’s hard to ignore them. If you are linked to the programming industry in any way, you have probably heard about GraphQL, a technology created by Facebook in response to real problems they faced. Some may still be sceptical about it, but others see it as an improvement on REST APIs. In this article, I am going to show you why GraphQL is a viable solution for both new and existing applications and what its advantages are when compared to REST.

Just like last year, we asked our designers to share their vision of the upcoming UX trends for 2017, and they have some interesting insights. Every response, besides other things, mentioned two trends: new ways of interacting with users – either through AR, VR or voice UI, and improvements to more standard technologies, such as better UI animations or microinteractions. We are looking forward to seeing these predictions come true.
