You might ask the question 'Why do you have more than one coffee maker?' The answer is simple. Not all of us drink caffeine, but we all love coffee.
There are many paths to becoming a senior developer. Likewise, there are many definitions of what a senior developer is. I have been fortunate to have access to some great senior developers who have been open to teaching and mentoring me along the way.
Justin Johnson: I’ve worked as a physical therapist for over a decade. Over that period, I’ve noticed technology increasingly facilitates my daily patient interactions. I turn to apps to look up medications, rare diseases, and durable medical equipment for patients. I’ve used just about every Electronic Medical Record (EMR) out there.
Here at Radial, we have developed several communication strategies to ensure that our clients’ products ship on time and meet their business needs. We are sharing them so you can learn how we communicate.
We build web applications for many companies who later decide they want a mobile app as well. This may be because they want to enable mobile-specific options like in-app purchases or location-based features. Or maybe they simply want to reach new markets with iOS and Android apps.
It’s easy for an open office space to develop a negative atmosphere. One employee starts complaining about a particular piece of tech or a legacy codebase, and everyone in earshot piles on. The result: A 15-minute whinge-fest (look it up) with no clear gains and some definite downsides.
At Radial Development Group, we build a wide range of software applications. But even varied projects often have similar technical issues. One common customer request is the ability to upload lots of data to an app at once using a CSV file.
Radial recently created an application for the Loveland Museum. It’s an iPad game that teaches students how to correctly address an envelope. As a company, we decided to donate the work involved in building this application as a service to our community.
Recently Radial built a small iPad application aimed at children. We worked with an illustrator to create a fun character for the app named Pete the Carrier Pigeon. We wanted Pete to come alive in a few of the views with some simple animations. Here’s how we did it.
ustom software is very exciting. The possibilities are almost limitless, and you can build something that may become core to your business or your brand.
When testing your front end code, you may need to test more complex behavior such as making asynchronous requests. However, it is bad practice to make actual requests in a test, so you have to find a way to test your code without sending real requests.
t’s been six months since I joined Radial Development Group as their first marketing intern. Interning at a small business is a very different experience from interning at a large corporation, and now that my internship is coming to a close I want to share some of what I’ve learned.
It’s not news that women in tech often suffer from a lack of confidence. It’s also no surprise that a lack of confidence translates into worse outcomes for women. This could range from lower pay to fewer promotions.
Figuring out client priorities is a key part of application development. It’s not an easy task. Here at Radial we’ve developed a web application to help us do this better.
Here at Radial, we work hard to maintain a strong company culture, focused on our core values. Culture is so important to us that we sometimes say we are a culture company, not a software company (more on that soon). We want everything that happens within our office to reflect our core values.
