The DevOps culture challenges many companies with a software development department. Managers or even players in the field will undertake a DevOps transformation in the short term.

DevOps is a scam is meant to be a frank discussion of the essential elements required for a DevOps culture. Yes, some technologies will be discussed, but they will always be placed in an organizational, cultural or operational context.

  • What is the ‘real’ motivation behind the adoption of DevOps?
  • Which predecessors are obligated to DevOps?
  • Why is the Cloud the only viable option?
  • What is the purpose of microservices?
  • The distributed monolith, often…

Maintenant à la tête de sa 4e entreprise à titre de CTO, Maxime vient nous partager son expérience à livrer un MVP qui cible les grandes entreprises, et ce en 3 mois. Grâce à son parcours, il comprend à la fois les principes de gestion d’entreprise et la technologie disponible. Ainsi, Maxime est capable de prendre une idée de produit, évaluer sa faisabilité d’un point de vue technologique et prendre les bonnes décisions pour livrer ce MVP.

Car en plus de la vision, des idées, des compétences et du financement, il faut savoir procéder par étapes. Dans le contexte actuel…


Most software projects have tight deadlines. Operating at the speed of business today demands this.

When you’re working under these tight deadlines, it can seem prudent to cut processes that take extra time. Best practices like Test-Driven Development (TDD) and Code Reviews — despite directly contributing to defect-free software — can get shoved aside.

It’s easy to justify because you think you’re saving time, and there’s a deadline to hit. TDD and Code Reviews take extra time. Some estimates say these can add 30% to your design phase.

But the cost of skipping Test-Driven Development and Code Reviews is much…


Lors de la dernière édition du Club des Scalables CTO, nous avons eu l’opportunité de d’entendre Simon sur son parcours entrepreneurial qu’il l’a amené à effectuer un shift de culture afin de passer à une entreprise de produits à 100%.

Lorsqu’il a lancé son entreprise, Simon ne savait pas du tout dans quoi il s’embarquait. Il voulait simplement faire une différence dans la société et l’entrepreneuriat allait être son moyen d’y arriver. Il ne se doutait jamais de ce que GSoft deviendrait quelques années plus tard. …


Nowadays, CTOs and software architects must provide the technology strategies to meet an ever-shrinking intersection in the Venn diagram of corporate priorities.

Here are my top considerations when I act as CTO:

  • Responsibility transfers (partners)
  • Functional requirements
  • Non-functional requirements
  • Time and budget constraints
  • Team support
  • Development philosophies
  • HR policies
  • Financial opportunities
  • Go to market acceleration

Let’s look at each concern in more detail.

Can the technology strategy promote responsibility transfers?

Today, there are so many aspects to consider when using technologies that doing everything in-house makes little sense. You must transfer to outside partners the responsibilities for components that are…


The modern software culture embraces DevOps teams, agile development practices, test-driven development (TDD), and continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD).

This software culture has emerged in the industry over the last 10 years. During this time, INGENO observed that not all businesses have the resources to set up their own in-house teams of software developers.

As a solution, INGENO set out to provide businesses with Agile Custom Software Development as a Service: Affordable access to a pool of world-class software development teams trained under the Modern Software Culture.

INGENO’s elastic pool of software engineers delivers significant value to businesses with any…


What Is Cloud Migration?

Cloud migration is the moving of applications, data, and other business aspects from on-premises to a cloud computing environment. By migrating to the cloud, your business can see reduced computing costs and improved performance, reliability, and security.

Let’s look at the hypothetical company AcmeCorp to see how it could benefit from cloud migration.

AcmeCorp used to be the go-to company for local, same-day small parcel delivery. Recently, AcmeCorp lost half of its business to Uber and Lyft, which offer more convenient delivery services and at a lower cost.

AcmeCorp’s operations and customer interactions are running on legacy infrastructure: 15-year old…

Il y a plusieurs mois, INGENO a présenté la 1re édition de l’événement CONTINUUM.

Nous avons eu le privilège de présenter 4 conférences de leaders Québecois en Californie.

Aujourd’hui, on vous offre en exclusivité la conférence de Jean-Sébastien de Netflix. Il nous a parlé de Liberté et Responsabilité (Freedom & Responsibility) dans les équipes R&D. Le style de gestion de Netflix se concentre sur le Contexte plutôt que le Contrôle. Les ingénieurs logiciels peuvent avancer rapidement dans un environnement de travail sans friction, car ils établissent eux-mêmes les priorités de ce qui, selon eux, peut avoir un impact positif sur l’entreprise!

If you’ve lost software developers while being closed by COVID-19, it could be hard to find new tech talent again. Here’s a strategy for when the economy restarts.

Many of our San Francisco customers completely outsource their SaaS development to us here at INGENO. Either making software is not their core business, or they feel that acquiring and retaining tech talent is too much of a risk.

If you think that outsourcing is tricky or provides low-quality results, ask for the following:

  • Low friction, high visibility DevOps model
  • Daily, zero downtime blue/green deployments to production
  • Automated test suite with 100%…
