A couple of months ago, we reviewed the new Firefox browser designed for developers. Since then most of our developers kept Google Chrome as their primary browser. Working with Chrome offers access to an immense repository of Chrome extensions and tools which make our daily tasks less of a chore. With the built-in developer tools, there seems to be no further need for more tools. However, I’d like to present you 14 of the best Google Chrome extensions for developers.

It’s a sad fact that the tech industry is still vastly dominated by men. Currently, women hold only around 25% of all tech jobs. The number is even smaller for management roles. Only 14% of all CTO positions in tech companies belong to women. You’d think with all the innovative products, ideas and technologies launched every day, the tech industry would have figured out gender equality. Well, it hasn’t. As technology keeps advancing into every aspect of our lives, this is something that has to change. It is more important than ever to make women seen and female voices heard.

Today, we want to present you 7 outstanding female CTOs. These women are leading the way for women in tech in 2017 and beyond.

The new year motivated us to think about learning a new programming language. Inspired by Alexander Falks’ post “Learn a new programming language this summer” we are opening the learning season 2017: What programming languages should I learn in 2017?

What programming languages should I learn” is one of the most popular questions these days. It’s complicated. There are so many languages to choose from these days.

Whenever you have too many choices it is harder to actually decide to learn one language. You might know the famous “Jam study” by psycho-economist Sheena Iyengar, who found that shoppers who were confronted with 24 different jams where very unlikely to buy one. (The sweet spot for jams, no pun intended, is a choice of six different jams).

We love options and alternatives, but more choices make it harder to decide. That is true for web development, too. That’s why I want to break it down for you and make it very easy.

It’s still up to you which programming languages to try, but you will have a pretty good overview to start from.

Version Control repository management services are a key component in the software development workflow. In the last few years, GitHub and GitLab positioned themselves as handy assistants for developers, particularly when working in large teams.

With the latest release of GitLab 10.0, GitLab took a major leap forward from code management, to deployment and monitoring. GitLab calls it Complete DevOps. They aim for the entire software development, deployment and DevOps market.

That means when talking about the differences and similarities of GitLab vs GitHub, we need to look beyond code repositories and take a look at the entire process.

With the latest Firefox browser update – Firefox Quantum – Mozilla made a leap forward in the browser game. The new Firefox browser is not only super-speedy and sleek. It caused an uproar as the new version only supports Firefox add-ons using the WebExtensions API.

We researched, reviewed, and hand-picked 12 of the best Firefox add-ons for developers.

The methodology of User Acceptance Testing (UAT) is pretty straight-forward. The implementation itself requires some in-depth knowledge on the available types of User Acceptance Testing, though.

User Acceptance Testing is the process of verifying that a created solution/software works for ‘the user’. This might sound easy enough but, in practice, it isn’t.

To make your journey into User Acceptance Testing a bit easier, we researched the 5 most common types of User Acceptance Testing you have to consider.
