X-Team recently held a round table discussion on the future of front-end web technologies, and one specific topic really stood out. With React.js being one of the current juggernauts of front-end development, can an up-and-coming technology like Elm hope to dethrone it? And what does WebAssembly have to do with all of this? While readers are likely familiar with React at least on the surface, let us kick this off by giving you a short overview o [...]

If you and your colleagues work 100% remotely from all over the world, no opportunity to meet with them in person should be missed. We try to create these opportunities as often as possible, focusing them mainly around various events, such as conferences. This time around, we picked React London! Credit: Wojtek Zając The conference took place in the QEII Centre, Westminster, close to many of London’s main attractions and notable areas. It was jus [...]

Last year, I spent most of my work trying to bring the potential of my fellow developers into full play. I was pretty confident about the routine I have established. This year, I’m trying out a new approach based on experiences from last year. I’m certain it will help others be more focused on their growth. The background Currently, I take care of 18 developers and their growth. The way we work is mostly based on the approach I have described in [...]

Today we’re excited to welcome five new members to the League of the Extraordinary, the honorary group of X-Teamers who have proven they are true superheroes. An X-Teamer is only able to unlock their superhero once they’ve consistently shown they know how to unleash their potential through various personal achievements. With Heroes Pack 23, we honor Juan Enrique Jimenez. (Dominican Republic), Dylan Coffey (USA), Diego Ferreira (Brazil), Henrique [...]

India is the second most populated country in the world and holds the 2nd highest population of developers in the world. Yet, it's one of the least popular places for digital nomads. Nomadlist ranks its capital, New Delhi, at #605 (out of 651). So then, what's it like being a nomad in India? X-Teamer Paul McCrodden spent 6 weeks throughout India as a nomad. Here's what he had to say about the trip in our #travel channel AMA: What was your favori [...]

Despite what people may tell you, you don't need an office to create an incredibly satisfied, fulfilled and, ultimately, happy team. I know this because every week when I read the feedback we get from our remote team spread across 30 countries, it usually looks like this: "Even though we are all remote, I never felt as close to a team as this one." - Henrique B. I've been building happy teams remotely since I was 10-years-old using the family [...]

We've decided to start a series of blog posts about the paths that our developers have taken as part of our Unleash program and their journey thus far. As the first example, I’d like to introduce you to one of the most humble and passionate developers I’ve ever worked with. This is the Unleash story of Mr. Kelvin De Moya. The humble beginnings I remember starting my work as an Unleasher in X-Team at the beginning of 2016 and Kelvin was one of the [...]

It was a normal week day when I decided to apply for a software development talk at my Alma Mater (Pontificia Universidad Católica Madre y Maestra – Santiago, Dominican Republic), not much went through my head at the moment other than that it would be nice to meet the new generation of CS students and serve as a bridge between what they are learning versus real world execution. While I was preparing for my talk a dreadful thought came to my mind: [...]

One of the biggest highlights of the year for X-Team was the unveiling of the X-Outpost, our roaming hacker house. Looking back now, what an epic adventure it has been joining the co-living movement. In 2016, the X-Outpost was hosted in 4 countries and 5 cities, including: Gran Canaria (Canary Islands) Naples, Italy Boston, MA Chicago, IL Koh Phangan, Thailand To learn more about how we created this co-living experience for our community of devel [...]

Welcome to the jungle Navigating the realm of web technologies may sometimes feel like exploring a jungle, especially for those who have just begun their journey. Abundance of programming languages, frameworks, libraries - even though exciting and challenging - sometimes makes one wonder: how and where do I start, since the most valuable resources are scattered around the web? At X-Team, we have developed a program solely devoted to accelerating [...]
