How to Handle Client Work Remotely: Our Communication Stack

Captain's log, stardate d427.y36/AB

As a remote working company, we work from very different places and at very different times. That is, we have no office. Because of that, we face a lot of questions about how we deal with customers: "How do you earn their trust?", "how can they know if you're working?", "how do you deal with specification changes?" and so on.

Dealing with clients while being a remote working company is not easy. In this entry, we explain how we do it.

The MarsBased CSS & HTML Guidelines

Since we started MarsBased, we've completed a good share of projects. From all of them we've learnt something useful. But all this knowledge should be stored somewhere for further use, for instance, to train new developers.

Pretty much like we did with the release of the MarsBased blogging guide (part 1, part 2), we want to share what we have learnt about HTML5 & CSS3 with you all.

Things should not only work well. They can also look good.

Frontend developers, this one is for you.

Code Refactoring: When, Why and Who

Captain's log, stardate d365.y36/AB

The rise of tech companies has caused a higher adoption of technology among new generations. People are learning how to code in order to keep up with the times, or to reinvent themselves professionally to unlock new paths in their career.

The more we code, the more we need to make it a sustainable practice. Quantity almost never implies quality.

Enter code refactoring. Everyone talks about what refactoring is, and how to do it, but we want to talk about the other three dimensions: when to do it, why, and who should do it.

You're one step away from meeting your best partner in business.
