About the team

In Speck we have a team of more than 15 experts that have been working on Peterson’s platform development. In less than a year we have managed to improve the code quality through the Gitflow Workflow process. We use Gitlab merge requests for code review, all of the new features are covered with functional and unit testing enabling us to cover the larger portions of code coverage. Also, we use the Gitlab CI/CD method to build, test and deploy new applications.

Some of the additional technologies we use include:

Development & deployment: Docker
Backend technologies: PHP, MYSQL, Redis
DevOps: Ansible, Terraform, automated deploy
Error Logging:

We have contributed to Peterson’s platform quality through the development of the Auth0 Single Sign-On authentication used through all of Peterson’s products, as well as through the development of the native mobile application Dantes.
