Here you will find ideas and code straight from the Software Development Team at SportsEngine. Our focus is on building great software products for the world of youth and amateur sports. We are fortunate to be able to combine our love of sports with our passion for writing code.

The SportsEngine application originated in 2006 as a single Ruby on Rails 1.2 application. Today the SportsEngine Platform is composed of more than 20 applications built on Rails and Node.js, forming a service oriented architecture that is poised to scale for the future.

Culture is a Team Sport: Team Health Checks

By Chris Trotter

This post lays out the journey we took with team health checks, and suggests some methods that might help you try them with your teams.

Culture is a Team Sport is our sub-series on Coding in the Crease to talk about culture, processes and policy at SportsEngine. We’ll focus on what we are doing to create a generative culture where our employees are able to learn and grow. In this article, we share how team health checks have helped us deal with the human side of teamwork and high-level issues.

This is part 2 of a 3 part series on the Mentorship Program at SportsEngine. In this post, Tony talks about his mentorship journey and how it helps junior engineers grow.

At SportsEngine, we understand that organizational culture heavily impacts the way we engineer our systems. We believe that improving the culture of our sociotechnical system must be a part of our day to day work. "Culture is a Team Sport" is our way of sharing how we are redesigning the system at SportsEngine to generate culture that positively impacts our work and lives.
This is part 2 of 3 of our sub-series on mentoring at SportsEngine.

Building a Learning Culture

08/02/2016, 12:30pm CDT
By Andy Fleener

A Learning Culture is the secret sauce of high velocity teams. It provides the mechanism for rapid iteration on everything.

So this post was inspired by my reflection on the 2016 DevOpsDays Minneapolis

I think my recurring theme for #devopsdays Mpls was that a learning culture is the secret sauce. Iterate on literally everything.
