Wow! I am still exhausted about my panel last week at the second edition of the Startup Grind Barcelona annual conference. It's been a long time since I had last spoken in front of such a large audience.

We, tech people, aren't too inclined to speak publicly. We might speak at minor tech events, or even in some small tech conferences, but rarely ever in front of big audiences. Let me share my tips with you!

One of the most frightening parts of being a developer is the recurring feeling that the solution that you are building is not going to work as intended, it is going to scale poorly or some of your coworkers will dislike working on top of it.

To give the best of yourself as a developer, you need to learn how to move away from these toxic feelings.

This week, I want to highlight the importance of taking a step back to analyse the applications we develop for our clients.

Being a consultancy means that all of our projects are for third parties (clients) who hire us for our expertise in Ruby on Rails or because they need more manpower and thus need extra people to increase their development pace.

Our clients always tend to prioritise new features. They feel that advancing equals building new features, but we need to advise them to take other factors into consideration.

Technology is evolving very fast. Every 6 months you have a new cool framework, language or technology popping up on your Twitter timeline and RSS feeds. It seems that you need to be always riding the wave to be a successful developer.

At MarsBased, we take very seriously the decision of the technologies we use in our projects. We are a laser-focused specialised company, so we can't afford to use new technologies just because they're trending on Reddit

With this post, we want to share our internal process to decide what technologies we add to our tech stack.

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