Behavior-driven development at the first StartIt Tech Meetup

On the 4th of October, at the first StartIt Tech Meetup in Belgrade, I gave a talk on behavior-driven development. Afterwards, I also did a short live-coding session, to show how BDD works in practice.

The talk was an introduction to TDD and BDD. I talked about what lead to the emergence of Agile techniques, what TDD and BDD are, which tools we use in our daily work and gave a few suggestions on starting with BDD. The live coding part involved extending an existing feature on our base-app by following the BDD cycle.

At the end of my presentation, after answering a few questions, I asked the attendees how many of them practice BDD. I was surprised to find out that, of around 150 of them, only a few do it on daily basis.

Semaphore Winter '16 Hackathon

The end of each year is a time to make plans for the following year and get inspired to work on new and exciting things in the year ahead. In December, we decided to organize a Semaphore hackathon for the entire company to celebrate the end of 2016 by getting creative.

People pitched their ideas and others voted with their feet by joining the projects they were most interested in. We split into multidisciplinary teams that had three days to capture new ideas and have fun making them a reality. Keep reading to find out what are the projects we came up with, what we learned working on them, and what are some of the outcomes of our first internal hackathon.
