DEBUGGING at D10X

Debugging is fixing bugs, i.e., errors in the code written. It is one of the tasks a developer finds themselves in for hours while working on a project. Sometimes, it seems like a breeze to fix the bug; other times, it takes a herculean effort to correct it. These bugs come in various categories: behavioral or logical, syntactical, run time, etc. One of the categories, called heisenbug, is one of the most difficult to debug. It takes hours to days to get a sense of it. During the past three years in D10X as a developer, I have faced many bugs working on different projects. Therefore, I would like to share my experience in debugging bugs. Bugs are introduced in codebases because of a lack of understanding of the requirements(logic) or how tools you use function. One common ground I found post-analysis of my debugging journey is that I fixed the logic by filling gaps in knowledge.   Over the years, we have built a workflow of debugging at D10X.  Ask a teammate if it takes more than two h

Git Branching Strategy

​ One and a half years ago, one of our clients was experiencing serious deployment problems like on lot of merge conflicts on  every merge , ​ ​ production database scripts and committed scripts are different resulting in wrong data schema, etc We analyzed and concluded that root cause of problems is poor branching strategy. The client asked us to suggest the branching strategy that will work for them. We designed and implemented the updated Git branching strategy and solved the majority of deployment issues. Following are the branching strategies for different development workflows that we implemented for the client. Strategies for CI-CD based development There will be four main branches created for each project and they are as follows, Develop QA Staging  Pre-Production Main / Production Below is the diagram that represents the strategy with the process automation and audiences, Strategy for develop branch: When a developer starts working on a feature, a feature branch will be create

Hyper versatility - a niche

Specialisation and niche offerings are one of the foundational elements of success for any business proposition. Differentiation and industry focus elevates the provider against their competition more, so buyers also are biased towards providers focus and track record that aligns with their needs.  Information Technology propositions are no different however success of application of technology to solve a business problem that we generally term it as “Use Case” is largely dependent on the out of the box thinking of a CTO. There are many ways to solve a same problem. Designing, developing, and implementing a solution that is elegant, scalable, sustainable over a long period is work of an art. It is a completely different ball game when you develop something from scratch vs building a solution on top of a legacy infrastructure.  D10X is known for developing intelligent and agile solutions. D10X Mantra is to use simple solutions rather than 'buzzwords'.  Hyper versatility in probl

What we (D10X) look for while recruiting Software Developers?

Recently we have posted job ads on LinkedIn as well contacted various recruitment agencies. As usual, we got hundreds of profiles and most of these are irrelevant/not matching to our requirements. This could be a result of candidates so desperate to land a decent job OR the recruitment agencies / hiring agents carrying out a 'Keyword' search for shortlisting profiles against the requirements. Both scenarios are commonly prevalent today in the market. So if you are looking to join D10X, here's a blog that will not only set our expectations right, but will guide you to develop yourself. At D10X, we look for 2 key attributes in our team members  Aptitude for Programming: It is possible that you have done many courses on programming and you know the syntax. That does not mean you have aptitude for programming. You cannot learn the 'aptitude for programming'. You either have it or you don't. Many candidates fail to write really simple programs. And we reject them qui
