Agile Coaching & Engineering Practices
put the theory into practice.

In our opinion agile only works when in addition to your processes you also change your engineering practices to enable agility. Some of those engineering practices include:

  • Test Automation
  • Continuous Integration
  • Continuous Delivery
  • Unit Testing
  • Pair Programming
  • Test Driven Development
  • Infrastructure as code

You can bring us on board to coach your organization in how to put agile engineering practices into reality.

Selenium Proof of Concept
before you invest.

You want to try open source test automation tools like Selenium? Not sure if it is right for you and your organization? We do a Proof of Concept together with you. They typically take 3-5 days where we evaluate your application and together we try to automate it with the Selenium Tool Family. Afterwards you have a clear view whether Selenium is the right tool for you. Our proof of concepts are fully functional software that can be used as a base to build upon when you decide to go forward.
