A lot of developers (including members of Team Testomato) got their start working as freelancers. That’s why we occasionally discuss tips and tricks for freelance web developers on our blog. Today, we’re going to talk about a topic that’s close to our hearts: mistakes. We’re all human, and we all mess up once in awhile.

They also show us how to investigate the way systems work and the problems that may occur within them. Learning to properly debug can help you: Debug complex code…

One of the most popular methodologies out there are the many different faces of Agile, which are all based on iterative and rapid development.
