Software Practice Consulting

Test Driven Development

For over 8 years, we have been doing Test Driven Development as a standard practice on all our projects. We are therefore well qualified to provide jump-start training, coaching, ongoing monthly check-ins and test reviews to help you successfully navigate through the adoption and maturation phases. We offer:

  • First Steps Training Course
  • Advanced Training Course in T-SQL, C# and JavaScript
  • Retainer – for questions and guidance
  • Our Katarai product also feeds into coaching

Software Architecture Audits

Often our clients come to us with gaps in between their “existing software and quality capabilities”  and their “aspired business goals”. If this is an issue in your company, Chillisoft can assist you in assessing and aligning your software production processes to meet your business goals. We use a combination of tools, analysis, code reviews as well as interviews with key team members to achieve this. We characterise risk and provide specific recommendations for strengthening software development.

Our objective stance enables us to provide meaningful, well organised, complete and robust reports that are understandable to both management and the technical team.

We can provide an overall audit of your various code bases, as well as ongoing quality monitoring and coaching to ensure that you are not building legacy code tomorrow. The process includes:

  • Initial Quality Audit
  • Teaching skills of refactoring, implementing tests
  • Training on good design using existing code

Lean Practices:

At Chillisoft we work and train in Lean Practices. This is an adaption of Toyota’s Lean Product Development and essentially means we eliminate waste, amplify learning, deliver value as fast as possible, and always build in quality.  We offer lean UX design, lean software development and lean product development coaching on practices.
