Our Blue Treble Solutions team is composed of experts in designing, developing, and supporting web applications for companies and organizations that require scalable, high-performance technical solutions.
Software development (not to be confused with design) requires a lot more than translating ideas into code to be successful. Good development is a process that includes the following critical components:
- Coding practices — these determine how maintainable your code is. Is the code easy to read and understand? Is it well-organized? Or is it an undecipherable pile of spaghetti?
- Design for test — ensures that testing is not an afterthought, nor is it “QA’s job.” Quality begins with the code itself, and the processes used to create it.
- Continuous integration and unit testing — this part of the process loop ensures that the team can work at full speed while minimizing the risk of breaking existing code. Instead of haphazard manual checking of new features, we create permanent tests for those features. These tests both prove that new code works as well as ensuring that it won’t be impacted by future changes.
Equally important to the coding process is building a technology environment that supports coding. An optimal environment for coding increases productivity and reduces bugs.
