Software Engineering Snippet – Issue #3

Hi friends,

welcome to another episode of the Software Engineering Snippet. This week’s app highlight was the initial release of the Corona- Warn-App frontend source code. The app contains some beautiful screens and seems to be easy to use. If you are interested in further details about the app, then check my previous newsletter editions.

My Favourite Things This Week

1 – Corona-Warn-App – SAP developers published the first part of the user interface of the new Corona-Warn-App for Germany. Beautiful screens are shown on the initial screenshots. The app looks really nice and well implemented.

2 – Software Testing – The last days, I looked into testing strategies for my latest backend implementation. This reminded me of a great conference talk about Automated Testing Strategies for Microservices; presented by Florian Biesinger, Spotify.

3 – Remote Work – During the last 12 weeks, most of us are working from their home office. Many content is published, trying to optimize our remote working possibilities. Martin Fowler published a helpful text about How to do effective video calls.

4 – Design – I came across the Diagrams app. It seems such a useful web app to draw cloud systems architecture diagrams.
