Outsourcing experience

So far we've contracted with an Elpha member and had a great experience. Interesting to hear how you've approached working with contractors. What kind of project are you working on? It seems super hard to build a web app for example and not provide the code base for context and testing.

Oh interesting... I will definitely try that next time :) We're working on a web app and since we opt to have multiple microservices, they can be develop & tested independently. Yes, there is a catch... when integrating back to the main portal app, an integration testing is needed.

Hi Cadran. I am trying to understand your comment- “ seems super hard to build a web app for example and not provide the code base for context and testing.”. Does this mean that the contractor has/knows the code and so everything that must be done should ideally be done through the original team? Thank you.

hi! @fannysurjana was saying she doesn't share her full codebase with contractors she works with because she builds microservices that are independent from each other. Which means a contractor would come onto the project and not have context about how other microservices work.
