How does your team get into the Christmas spirit? With it being the season of giving back, what better way than spending a day helping a local charity! So, when an invitation from MuleSoft came in we didn’t hesitate—helping an urban farm for a day? We are in!
It's been almost two years since our ways of working have changed completely. Although the offices are opening their doors again, online meetings are part of our working life, and they are here to stay.
As a Test Analyst at Infomentum, I generally follow a formal structured test process, one that is promoted by certification bodies such as ISTQB. It ensures that we adhere to the best practices and verify that the software under test meets our requirements. But is it always enough? In my experience, no. On occasion, a more experimental method of testing is a more suitable approach for that given project. Great news, it also fits nicely with an agile development cycle!
We caught up with Sikander Sehrawat, who joined our Development team as an intern and quickly progressed into a full-time Associate position. He talks about what it was like to start his first working experience during a pandemic and his journey to a certified MuleSoft Developer.
We developers love to use and create automated processes! If something is repetitive, we have an urge to write a bash script, a gulp/grunt task, etc. It is in our nature! If we can automate, we will automate.
Exciting news to share! We are launching a new MuleSoft Online Group dedicated to introducing Java Developers to the MuleSoft world.
What is your favourite part of an IT project?
Mine has always been writing user stories. It is when all the ideas take shape and begin their journey to a shiny new product. I know that not everybody feels the same way. I understand why, especially when it comes to writing User Stories for back-end systems, for example, APIs, as these can be particularly challenging.
One of the things I love about MuleSoft (aside from the cool tech) is how they engage their partner network. From the big Systems Integrators and the more boutique players like Infomentum, everyone gets involved! In March, there was no time for opposition (although still a fair bit of competition) as the Partner network came together to raise money for charities aiming to end Child Poverty.
Here is a challenge for you - how to create an API that retrieves data from a cloud-based system with no external APIs? In the situations like this, it would make a perfect sense to access the data via the system's UI using robotic automation bots. Your API can invoke a bot to read the required information. To implement this solution and enable APIs to Bots requests, we need an API-RPA connector.
Diversity is in Infomentum's DNA. From our Directors to team members, we strongly believe in a multi-cultural and inclusive work environment. It's the reason we became a Skilled Worker Visa (formerly a Tier 2 General work visa) sponsorship company.
