One of the less visible features we have rolled out as part of the brand new Red Badger website is service workers support. Alex explains why we think service workers are so great.
Nico explains the “theory” behind version control (Git and Github) in plain English so that you understand the big picture of how software engineers work. No code. Nothing to download. No mess. No fuss.
The November Functional meetup brought much merriment to the freezing streets of London. Hot pizza, cold beer, clever likeminded people, and of course the main event: the talks.
Matt went to Reactive Conf in Bratislava last month; here are his top tips on which of the talks are worth catching up on.
Red Badger recently hosted an event called “The Future of the Cloud: Go beyond servers & containers to increase speed to market” in collaboration with Horizon Business Innovation.
At the end of October I gave a talk at Serverless Conf London about writing Serverless Framework plugins.
What follows is a high level account of a recent trip to attend a masterclass for the highly popular business tool, the Business Model Canvas. This method, combined with lean startup is taught in some the world’s most respected business schools.
All in all our trip to StrangeLoop 2016 and St. Louis was fantastic and personally I will be looking into going again next year. Thanks to Alex Millar, the whole StrangeLoop team, and the StrangeLoop community for making such a friendly and welcoming conference, thanks to Red Badger for letting us have such a great time with our training budgets, and thanks to my friends, Anna and Viktor for putting up with me when I’m grumpy, jetlagged, and decaffeinated.
I’ve been wanting to go to a Clojure conference for a long while. Partly to get to know the international Clojure community better, and partly to experience first hand the diversity of talks that these conferences offer. EuroClojure was a natural choice for me this year, as I could not make it to its bigger brother in the US, Clojure/conj.
I went to the Serverless Conf last week. I met a lot of great people, heard quite a few inspiring talks, and presented a talk myself. People tend to say that serverless is fast and reduces cost of our infrastructure – but is that actually true? Hint: I still think it's awesome.
As we work with larger and more complex companies, we become the people to introduce Agile ways of working into an organisation. However, when you’ve worked using Agile for a decade or more, as many of us have, you often assume some knowledge that people don’t have. With that in mind, we decided to put together a glossary of Agile terms, so you know why we randomly ask you to stand up every day at the same time!
As UX designers we are always aiming to balance the needs of the user with the requirements of the business and with what’s technologically feasible.
Technology! The Badgers love their technology, both new and old - but what’s coming up next? Recently, we spent a fantastic day discussing developer and testing topics ranging from new languages to new ways of working. This culminated in a bustling open spaces session to find out what the Badger collective thinks about our current, and future technological ecosystem.
The other day, the following tweet was shared by a friend of mine:It put into words something that I’ve been struggling with for a while. As a Project Manager, I am always focused on the practical elements of the work I am doing. However, because Red Badger is a full-service agency, I also act as something more approaching an Agile coach.
Free beer and pizza, developers, and maybe React talks? You’ve come to the right place! This month’s React London Meetup was held at Skillsmatter, CodeNode, which a great place for like minded developers to socialise, share their ideas and see the latest trends in the React community.
React has exploded in the last few years. People are catching on to the technical advantages it brings. Should you consider adopting it? This article aims to relay the benefits of React.JS in plain English.
Red Badger are ranked 44th in The Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 for 2016, published today.
Great beer, pizza and speakers can only mean one thing, another React London Meetup! This month we had three awesome speakers and the sweltering hot weather that can only be "enjoyed" once or twice a year in London.
This year for Red Badger’s sixth birthday we stayed at Schloss Beesenstedt, a castle 45 minutes from Leipzig in Germany. We had our Company Day, setting the direction of travel for the next 12 months - and then we had a party. It was a magical and stunning setting. It was amazing.
