  • Ship It Day how-to: Empty coffee can detector

    As you could read in one of our previous posts, a few weeks ago Foreach organised a two-day period where employees could pick projects they wanted to work on. The only requirements were that it had to be useful and ‘shippable’ after two days. 

    Because nobody likes an empty or almost empty coffee can and we were tired of the discussions when the coffee has to be refilled, we decided to build a detector that tells us when exactly we need to make new coffee. 

    This post describes how we did it.

  • Ship It Day 2016: about being off the grid for 24 hours

    On Thursday 14th and Friday 15th of January, we organized our very first Ship It Day. "What's that?", you might ask. Well, it's essentially a 24-hour period in which the employees can work on projects they thought up themselves and go off the grid for customers. Don’t worry, the customers were warned. Ship It Day was an opportunity for our people to focus on unbillable passion projects in small teams as long as they could create something shippable afterwards.

  • New tutorial about testing Spring Boot microservices with CWB

    In this tutorial I will show you how to use Cucumber and CWB REST to test a Spring Boot microservice.  Starting from a Spring Boot application using an embedded Tomcat, we will first setup the CWB integration and write a simple feature.  The feature will connect to the actual running webserver and execute its scenario's. As a next step we will configure the embedded Tomcat to use a dynamic server port and see a simple code based approach for starting the webserver en running the Cucumber features on any port.
