At Devato, we work with Technology everyday to communicate, track work and build amazing products for our clients.
Our deep experience working with in the industry utilizing different tools everyday helps to guide strategy, design and architecture decisions for our clients. We hand-craft unique processes for delivery for every client and continually improve by integrating new technology as often as it benefits products or processes.
Here are some of the tools we use for different departments.
User Experience & Design
We normally work with Figma, but are able to design in any of the popular systems for wireframing, UX Design, and then mockups with design systems and UI elements.
- Adobe XD
Front-end includes the user interface and client-side code that users see and interact with.
- Phoenix templating (EEx)
- Phoenix LiveView
Back-end includes server-side systems. Code that processes interactions like site registration, and loads the data to be displayed in the front-end client side code.
We primarily use Elixir/Phoenix with any backend systems. There are times when we need to build an API into a system and we’ll either build REST or GraphQL based API’s depending on what the client needs.
- Elixir / Phoenix
Developer Operations can be a cryptic concept with varying interpretations.
DevOps has a simple definition for Devato, which is that development and operations teams seamlessly collaborate to increase delivery and productivity. One of the greatest obstacles organizations face when implementing a DevOps approach is adapting principles to address unique challenges.
We provide insight to help teams assess current practices and identify the next steps in achieving continuous improvement.
Planning and Building infrastructure:
We tailor infrastructure to match client needs. Simpler systems need simple infrastructure, and the inverse is true.
- Amazon Web Services
- Google Cloud Platform
Automating the creation and configuration of servers using things like:
Automatically enforces coding standards, runs automated tests, and will only deploy your code when everything is green and passing.
- Github Actions
- AWS CodePipeline
Monitoring and Incident Reporting:
Involves implementing systems to monitor tings like CPU/Memory Usage per server or node, creating alerts when service usage bypasses a certain threshold, uptime checks to send alerts anytime a system becomes unavailable and finally Code Error Tracking systems and Logging.
- AWS Logging and Metrics
- GCP Logging and Metrics
Project Management & Remote Work
Our company is fully remote and we rely on some of the best tools available to communicate and organize work.
- Github Issues
- Github (primarily)
There are nearly infinite tools and strategies for organizing digital, remote work. But these are the tools we’ve had the most success with as we try to only reach for something when the pain of not having it becomes too much.
