Inspiring Inovation of Digital Design

If your customer base is ageing with you, then eventually you are going to become obsolete or irrelevant. You need to be constantly figuring out who are your new customers and what are you doing to stay forever young. – Jeff Bezos, Founder of Amazon

A New Focus For Agile Development

Recently there’s been some new thinking around agile methodologies and processes to possibly bring those disillusioned with agile and scrum back into the fold. Two movements have emerged: Agile 2016 keynote speaker, Joshua Kerievsky’s “Modern Agile” and Agile Manifesto signatory Alistair Cockburn’s “Heart of Agile.”

Both emphasize getting back to basics, using a principle-based strategy that  can be used beyond software development. The industry has become overloaded with techniques, processes, methodologies and tools that have fallen under the agile umbrella.

Many consider these more marketing hype than agile, feeling they are moving away from the simplicity that the agile principles promote. Both Modern Agile and Heart of Agile aim to move agile to the next level, not by adding complexity, but by simplifying— stressing only adherence to four principles.

Why do we Need the JWT in the Modern Web Era?

For a long time we, as developers, fought with it: sometimes with good results, sometimes not, but we thought we were happy.
Unfortunately, the web goes fast and many of these solutions was getting old too quickly.

Later on, a group of people realised that it was time to stop fighting with the “problem” and try to embrace it. The result of that epiphany is called JSON Web Token (JWT for short) and here we will try to tell its story…

How to deploy your Laravel application on AWS continuously

There is something very powerful about automating even the little things. We sometimes think as automation as the simple maths of saving a given number of minutes/seconds by a given number of times a day but the compound effect is much greater.

As you will be setting up more automation for your deployments, you will run into and solve problems many times more critical than saving a few minutes a week.
