When (not) use JSON Patch in ASP.NET Core. A real-life testimony.

As software engineers, we implement APIs based on common GET/PUT/POST/DELETE operations for manipulating resources. PATCH operation is far less popular among the above. JSON Patch in ASP.NET Core can be a powerful tool, but it is often tricky to use and may cause problems while implementing in some business cases. In this article, I'll teach you how to use this tool, avoid those problems, and when not to use it to update your business domain model.

How being a technical recruiter made me an even better programmer

For a few months now, I've been a technical recruiter in my company. You can trust me or not, but I'm enjoying meeting other programmers and getting to know their way of living, learning, and developing their professional careers. Also because every time I met entirely different people with different attitudes, different dreams, and plans for their future.

Product Owner – the one who controls the chaos. Why do you need them?

Project management and further work on its development are undoubtedly a challenge for the entire team, as well as for the client who wants to realize his vision. The issue of building such a team and division of tasks is not without significance here. Many software houses are currently working using Scrum, which offers a specific work framework and division into roles.

Software testers: their role in developing applications

The role of a tester in a team is surrounded by many myths. One of them is that it is the most problematic role in a team. The second is that his/her work delays handing the finished product over to the customer. Someone who repeats this kind of stereotypes may not realize what QA (Quality Assurance) work consists in. Nor do they see that testing activities bring more good than bad. In the long term, we balance out two scenarios: postponing the submission of works or... losing the customer. So I decided to analyze what software testing is really all about. And who can become a tester, even before acquiring hard skills.

The value of the Discovery workshops: What are the main benefits for the client and the team? Part 2

Let’s be honest - we are a lazy species. But here is the thing. The shortest way is not always the easiest one. And surely it doesn't come with all the astonishing views of the landscape around. Sometimes you have to come full circle to experience the fullness and depth. To DISCOVER. So, let us take you for a walk ;). Our guides in the second part of the Discovery workshops story will be Kamila Herezińska, Product Owner, and Maciej Wiśniewski, UX/UI Designer. They have the same background, working together in the same project’s team but their perspective is slightly different. But they both agree – Discovery workshops are mandatory for planning work anchored in reality.

Why user onboarding is important?

The thing with the first impression is that we can make it only once. Every new action we take, in any sphere of life, contains this magical, unrepeatable factor of surprise.  We are exploring the unknown. The same applies to the process of introducing products/apps to new users. The line between having a good onboarding experience and getting lost in functionalities is very thin. So, how to make it right?

Summary of the year of remote work: how to level knowledge in a team?

Remote work took something away from us. There is no longer an opportunity to be around other brains during the week and "borrow" the desire to work. And we get drained of this desire every day. Some have not regained the key competence of agile teams: group wisdom, diversity of experience, different perspectives. The sense of agency (resulting from the same level of knowledge in the team) proved difficult to achieve in remote mode. Read how to organize a remote team for it to form a whole despite the physical distance. And one that it does not lose its unique vibe.

The value of the Discovery workshops: What are the main benefits for the client? part 1

Most of the time, before starting the project, clients don't see the point in taking part in the Discovery workshops, assuming that the most important things are included in the brief. However, as the name suggests, the brief is only a general description that shows more or less what the whole process would look like; it doesn't give us further context on the topic being discussed. At Inwedo, most of the projects we're involved in are mission-critical, such as key business processes, so it's important for both the client and our team to fully understand the situation and prepare tailored insights for the road ahead.
