29 November 2018
Behind the Scenes Delphi
A new Behind the Scenes is coming up. This time we'll cooperate with Barnsten. Our Developers will tell you about using virtual interfaces for consuming external APIs, data access abstraction and injectable function calls. Besides that they will share experiences in transforming a monolith back office application into a service oriented on.

About Behind the Scenes

Curious as to what goes on behind the scenes at the IT Development department of one the largest e-commerce companies of the Benelux? Wonder no more, because we'd love to have you over at one of our Behind the Scenes events!

During these events our developers will share with you their work, insights and lessons learned. Afterwards, there's a tour of our office and we wouldn't be Coolblue if we didn't wrap up with a few drinks at our own in-office bar. Sounds good? Simply sign up for updates on future events and you'll be the first to know when the next one is coming up!

Stay up to date!
