How Assessments Work
Our engineers can help you by conducting a thorough assessment of the whole lifecycle of your development. This includes
- code and architecture reviews,
- developer tooling checkup,
- CI/CD pipeline validation,
- deployment target assessment,
- security checkup
- and giving advice on observability which includes logging, monitoring and distributed tracing.
A full assessment usually takes one or two weeks. However, the review is only the beginning of the journey. To make sure you stay on the right track as you keep evolving your software, you can book RisingStack’s consultants for a certain amount of hours / month as well and reach out to them when their expertise is needed.
Clients said about us
RisingStack has been a great partner for us in carrying out various software development and integrations projects. They are deeply knowledgeable, flexible and reliable. They work hard to make sure that the relationship stays strong by soliciting feedback and communicating regularly.
COO at Administrate
RisingStack helped us to carry out an internal Kubernetes cluster audit for TIKI's Data Science Platform. Together, the mixed team was able to identify over 10 relevant topics and was able to solve most of them during the five day on-site engagement. After the intense work and exchange, the team was able to solve the remaining topics within next 8 weeks. At the present time DSP runs smoothly and there are no design or performance bottlenecks.
CTO of Technologisches Institut für angewandte künstliche Intelligenz
It’s easy to believe you know enough about microservices to get started. However, the subject is both complex and broad. To better navigate the challenges I attended RisingStack’s comprehensive course on microservices in LA. I highly recommend it!
Chief Architect at Flywheel Sports
We've worked many times with Risingstack and we've achieved success every time. Their professional team has a very deep knowledge of Node.js and Kubernetes among many other technologies. Both consulting, developing and training sessions covered exactly what we needed, delivered on time. Experienced exceptional communication skills, flexibility and a customer-first mindset make them an awesome partner to work with.
Head of Engineering at Ingatlan.com
RisingStack has provided a series of trainings targeted at enhancing our developers' skills and confidence regarding Node.js and Microservices. The training programme had a well-thought-out syllabus and was very well organized. The instructors were very experienced and knowledgeable regarding full-stack development. The workshops had a lot of real-world examples and advice which made our developers feel the usefulness of the training. Overall a high quality training that fulfilled all our objectives.
Development Lead at Endava
Working with RisingStack has been a great experience so far, they are group of professionals and experts in the field. The thing we liked the most is that they adapt the training to all the different levels in the room and this makes it very easy to follow the new concepts they are presenting. Advanced React training was pretty good and one thing we will highlight, is that they published the repository in case somebody would need it in the future.
Head of Talents & Culture at trivago Palma office
When it comes to microservices and scaling a distributed system, the company we reach out to is RisingStack. Their DevOps experts could validate existing plans and make technology decisions that our team can confidently depend on. I highly recommend attending their Kubernetes and microservices trainings as well.
CEO and Founder at Automizy
During RisingStack's microservices training and subsequent Node.js audit mission, we felt well listened to, and we got the opportunity to present all of our questions and ideas. The presenters were knowledgeable of the subject and supported us in the creation of relevant technical tasks that we could easily integrate into our backlogs.
Software Architecture Team,
I have gained more appreciation for the Microservices course after reviewing the slides a few days after. To me, this means that I wasn't able to keep up with all the useful information that was provided due to the speed of the training (might be my fault). Thanks for putting together such a course and bringing it to Barcelona, it is obvious that this could only come from a group of people who have faced these challenges many times before.
Co-founder & CTO of EdPuzzle
At Instructure we're building Canvas, the world's leading LMS system which is used by half of the world's top 50 Universities. We engaged 4 developers from RisingStack to build a critical core functionality in our distributed system. Besides delivering high-quality code, RisingStack helped us train new staff, carried out code-reviews and made suggestions on improving our infrastructure.
Director of Engineering, Canvas / Instructure
RisingStack helped our team jumpstart an internal project using Node.js. Our team consists mostly of Java programmers who only had experience with more traditional web development environments. They helped us get started with a solid project structure and pointed us in the right direction regarding all the best practices. It's hard to imagine how many hours of trial and error that we saved by getting their expert advice!
I work with a bunch of Node.js microservices that run on Docker, and the knowledge gained from the workshop helped me a lot to understand what I can improve in our infrastructure in many ways.
Node.js Developer at 1&1 IONOS Cloud GmbH
Embracing new technologies can be both exciting and frustrating. When you try to migrate legacy code to a new platform, you are already familiar with the problems of your existing infrastructure and codebase, but you are probably not that familiar with all the risks the change imposes on you. In these cases it is beneficial to consult with an expert.
Developers often run into problems even without switching technologies, such as discovering performance bottlenecks and memory leaks. Even if your engineers are experienced in the language you work with, they still need to ship features quickly, thus these kind of issues can linger on for a long time, forever sitting in the backlog.
Our consultants can pinpoint the source of these problems and guide you in fixing them, so your engineers can focus on writing code, instead of going down the rabbit hole.
