Working on a web re-platforming team where we are rebuilding all of the payment pages to react which is server side rendered. At BookingGo the principles I learnt were to write tests for everything following a TDD approach. The team I work in believe in mobbing as often as possible, so the skills are shared in the team. We also follow a scrum way of working but also has Kanban in other teams.

My role was to collaborate with the Designers & Backend Developers in making the high- quality products for the client.
While making sure the frontend code was to the highest standard, I also learnt about working in an agile way by using Kanban boards to track client work. We followed a principle of releasing in small chunks rather than one big release. We also took part in team retro’s & estimated tickets in terms of complexity.
I also participated in upskilling other members of the team. I worked with a graduate frontend developer upskilling him to become a professional frontend developer. We did a lot of pairing together on tasks and I also split out time to work on side projects. I love sharing new technology or new ideas that could change the way we currently did things. These types of talks varied between team learning sessions & developer meetings. Other tasks I was involved in was being sent out to other clients offices to consult around performance.
