Friday projects are an initiative we do at Platogo to help our teammates. It starts with an idea; whenever you have one, you’re welcome to invite other Platogos and get down to business. The ideas are various: ranging from helping our client team with Continuous Integration setup, learning how to set up a Redpanda cluster on a staging environment, to learning a new skill together.
- No major rewrites
- Move all dependencies to managed npm packages
- Take the chance to work closely with our client team members
We revisited a couple of articles on the migration subject. We dug deeper and deeper into the topic. As we were exchanging ideas and articles some of us decided to try something simple. It was the typical “what if?” scenario – “What if we assign jQuery into the window object like old times?”. To no surprise this simple thing did the trick – everything seemed to work!
This called for a huge celebration. Clicking through Backoffice we didn’t find any apparent issues – “works like a charm” that was the conclusion. It meant we could already safely release the changes. With that we managed to hit our first milestone – we didn’t break anything and we could keep working on the rest of the dependencies bit by bit.
- Managed and optimized our build configuration
- Our Docker build is faster
- Great time with our client team members
