Excellent People we have worked with

TEAM WORK

Pair programming

We are inspired by the concept of Extreme Programming (XP) and program in pairs to help increase efficiency and motivation within the team as well as the quality of our code. In the team, our engineers enjoy their work more, learn from one another, communicate better and problems are solved much faster. Defects are detected early which lowers statistically the end defect content and thus, the overall defect fixing costs. Due to ongoing brainstorming and pair relaying the designs are clean and code lengths shorter, which improves the readability and maintainability of the code.

Daily stand-ups

We have daily stand up meetings to check on the progress of projects, make sure everyone knows what needs to be accomplished that day and brainstorm solutions to challenges. Customers are always invited!

Weekly meetings with customers

We schedule weekly meetings with our customers to talk about requirements, progress and ideas. On request different meeting rhythms can be applied.

Threesomes

We encourage groups of three programmers from different projects to come together and workshop solutions to the challenges they see on their projects. This encourages unique points of view and cross project teamwork – ensuring that fresh ideas and knowledge are always being brought to projects.

TGIF

We love Fridays at Aleph Engineering and devote every Friday afternoon to team building and education. Teams share their accomplishments on projects, new technologies or methodologies and everyone enjoys some food and beer in the process.

Shared documentation

Our internal procedures are covered in a detailed document structure shared among all team members. In addition we use Confluence on a project level to gather and share information on individual project structure, meeting notes, proceedings and decisions.
