Conviction


We believe that development teams for process and software must have some convictions to create beloved and beneficial solutions.
These are ours:

AGILE

Agile Principles

Know what you get, test what you need. useblocks builds runnable prototypes in 2-weeks loops.

FOSS

Free and Open-Source Software

Build better software together.
Use the knowledge and expertise of the international FOSS community.

KISS

Keep it simple and smart

Save time and trainings costs with simple and smart solutions for processes and software.

DRY

Don't repeat yourself

Pay less, start faster by using available solutions. useblocks tools are always separated into small, reusable modules.

RTFM

Read the f***ing manual

We have automated our documentation process and provide information for users, administrators and developers.

DIY

Do it yourself

useblocks shares everything. All our solutions can be easily extended and maintained by internal and external employees.
