Cake Team Blogs

Cake Solutions architects, implements and maintains modern and scalable software, which includes server-side, rich browser applications and mobile development. Alongside the software engineering and delivery, Cake Solutions provides mentoring and training services. Whatever scale of system you ask us to develop, we will deliver the entire solution, not just lines of code. We appreciate the importance of good testing, Continuous Integration and delivery, and DevOps. We motivate, mentor and guide entire teams through modern software engineering. This enables us to deliver not just software, but to transform the way organisations think about and execute software delivery.
