About our workflow
We believe that software is gardening. We trust each other to make good decisions and to provide (and accept) constructive feedback. Collaboration is the key to making a great product.
We want to build solutions that are long-lasting. This means writing code that is maintainable instead of quick fixes. Because our products are constantly changing, we believe our tech should be able to adapt. We believe that when code isn't tested it's legacy code and while we understand that it can take a lot of time and brainpower, it's worth it.
