Battling Mental Health Disorders with React and Postgres

The Grand Solution for Hospitality Staffing

Hospitality staffing app

If you’ve never seen The Grand Budapest Hotel, you’re missing out on a true masterpiece. Directed by Wes Anderson, the movie revolves around the adventures of a hotel concierge in a weirdly beautiful setting of the 1930’s Central Europe.

Quirky and entertaining, it features an ensemble cast of Bill Murray, Ralph Fiennes, Jude Law, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Owen Wilson, Edward Norton, and others. If you’re into movies, each of these names alone would be well enough a reason to catch the film. In The Grand Budapest Hotel, you get a whole crew of some of the world’s finest actors working together.

If you have seen the movie, though, you know that exceptional hospitality staff is exceptionally hard to find. Be it a bellboy, a chef, or any other specialist, hiring the right person is never easy. Or rather, it hasn’t been until now. This autumn, hospitality staffing will change forever thanks to a product we’re working on.

Building a platform for cancer patients with Angular and Node

There is something to be said about learning you have cancer. Pretty much everything you thought was important doesn’t matter. Day-to-day trivial things become even less important, yet weirdly ever more so as you try to maintain a sense of normalcy while going through treatment.

Our latest client is an industry leader in Point-of-Sale systems

Growing up in the rural parts of the United States meant that every father had certain expectations for their sons on their way to (manly) manhood. This entailed learning some important life skills such as baiting a fish hook, unhooking a girl’s bra with one hand, and winning a tickling contest with a porcupine.

How to make software development estimation work for engineers and business

Software development estimation

We all know that software development estimation is hard, for many reasons:

  • In and by itself, software development is too dynamic and complex for precise estimates.
  • Estimates are perishable, even more so in Agile.
  • Parkinson’s law, Hofstadter’s law, Goodhart’s law, and a dozen more eponymic laws prove that accurate software estimation is impossible.

These points are probably nothing new to you. They come to the fore whenever engineers talk about estimating software development. Yet, there’s one more stumbling stone that people don’t bring up that often:
