Tech at Effectory

Behind the scenes

We love sharing knowledge and meeting you!

We truly believe sharing knowledge and meeting others in the local tech community is key to personal growth and the best way to keep up with the fastly changing world around us.

In 2016 we started organizing the Aurelia Amsterdam meetup and a few months later we started the dotnet Amsterdam meetup. We've met some of the most amazing people during this period and had a great time organizing meetups. From time to time we try to help out other meetups with sponsoring and hosting to keep the local tech community thriving.

Meet us at one of the meetups we host or find us at one of the conferences we attend.

Our teams

We work in small SCRUM teams of 4 to 6 developers in 2-week sprints. Our teams are named using color names, and each team works in the way that fits them best. In general, each day starts with a standup. The standup takes around 15 minutes or less and brings us together to look at are we on target and if someone is stuck at a task and needs help from another team member.

Each product backlog item is only done when it's covered by unit and functional tests and is code-reviewed and tested by one of the other developers in the team. To make code reviews productive, we use linting tools within our builds, because we don't want to waste any valuable code review time on the discussions around code styling issues.

At the end of the 2-week sprint, we demo the work done in the sprint to our stakeholders to make sure the result matches the expectations, and we are moving in the right direction. After the demo, we have a 1-hour retrospective to together determinate what went well and what could be improved in our next sprint.

We use Visual Studio Online to host our backlog and store our code using git. Code reviews are done using pull requests. Once the pull request is accepted and merged to master VS Build and Release automatically process it and release to staging, run the functional tests, and swap to production. Because we make use of feature toggles we are able to release daily to production.

Team Yellow worked on creating our single sign-on system using ASP.NET MVC and ThinkTechture Identity Server. This system allows us to manage authorization in one central place and enable new authorization scenarios like connecting our systems to Microsoft (Azure) Active Directory. Currently, they work on modernizing our customer platform to move it to a single suite that allows our customers to exchanges files safely, view all the results and settings of a survey in one place. This suite is named My Effectory and is build using ASP.NET Core WebAPI, the Aurelia Framework, TypeScript, SASS, and is hosted on Microsoft Azure.
