Agile on the Beach Coding Retreat 2018

Agile on the Beach code retreat

For most of us a retreat is a place where you can relax, unwind, find solitude, or remain in silence. Not quite what our colleagues had in mind when they signed up for a 2-day Coding Retreat, hosted by Agile on the Beach and run by gurus Kevlin Henney and Jon Jagger.

Last but not least – meet our apprentice Elliot Paull!

It's National Apprenticeship Week - time for us to introduce you to our third apprentice, Elliot Paull! In his blog post, Elliot will talk us through his experience during his apprenticeship and demonstrates one of his projects in a short video. During that work-related project, he not only shows some programming skills but also uses TDD to continue developing the game. Well done Elliot!

Responsibilities of a Software Test Engineer

Hi, I’m Heather and I’m a Test Engineer here at Bluefruit. In this blogpost, I’m going to explain what Software Test Engineers at Bluefruit do, and how this can be of benefit to both software teams and clients. Testing is a vast, and tremendously important topic in software development. To be a good tester, you don’t necessarily have to know how to code, though you must be extremely inquisitive and have a good eye for detail.

Monday Motivation: It’s the little things that count.

Over the past week there has been a large amount of news coverage on the huge amount of plastics washed up on Cornish beaches. Inspired, a few members of the Bluefruit team decided it would be fun to do a beach clean over lunch. We rallied the troops and made the 10 minute drive down to Portreath only to find a very clean looking beach.
