When it comes to mobile app development, everyone faces the same question: native or cross-platform? The choice was not always difficult, since, in the early days of mobile app development, native was the only way to go. Developers typically had to write their app for both iOS and Android separately (if they wanted it available […]
At Calavista, we were interested in DevSecOps before there was an overall term for these best practices in software development. We were founded on concepts such as Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery, pioneering Agile development. Since the early 2000s, the software development and DevSecOps scene has changed dramatically, exploding with new technology to help streamline […]
At Calavista, we were doing DevOps before it had a buzz-word title. Likewise, we’ve been doing DevSecOps for quite some time, and it’s about time we start calling it what it is.
Our previous blogs have defined DevOps as a collaborative culture with its own defined practices, ideas, tools, technology, processes, and metrics. Integrating some of these elements into your workflow can help streamline and improve your development process.
DevOps has made it possible for organizations to develop and release stable applications faster than ever. However, and organization with a proper DevOps pipeline should always include Continuous Monitoring through the development lifecycle.
I recently started a new greenfield project, where the decision was to use a microservices-based architecture. The application was pretty well defined, including most of the data model, since there was a working prototype, so my biggest first concern was how to break it up appropriately into microservices.
Test Driven Development (TDD) is a development practice where developers author code by first describing the intended functionality in small, automated tests, then writing the necessary code to make that test pass.
Every day, a million and one thoughts fly around in our heads. Sometimes, they’re killer ideas – the ones we think will make use never have to work again for the rest of our lives. Other times, they are just products of a very overactive imagination.
In the last decade, we have seen significant shifts in software development operations. One of these shifts is the evolution of DevOps, which came into play in 2008/9.
Calavista boasts an impressive 90+% on-time, in-budget track record. As I pointed out in an earlier blog, I consider this SEVEN times better than the industry average of 30%. And yet, Calavista is very firmly an agile shop – we know the folly of waterfall methodology, especially for greenfield projects.
