This post outlines four reasons to use Promyze, a tool designed to help engineering teams share and leverage expertise.
These reasons include improving engineers’ skills, reducing the mental load of sharing knowledge, sharing best coding practices at scale, and making the company shine. The tool provides integrated onboarding mechanisms, features for creating best practices during code reviews, and mechanisms for sharing best coding practices for various domains. Additionally, best coding practices can be shared publicly on Promyze’s Hub or during webinars and blog posts.
Promyze provides an efficient and lightweight solution to capitalize on your team’s expertise and share them among all engineers in the organization. It could be seen as a “Standard Factory” to continuously shape your standards for the benefit of skills sharing across engineers.
Promyze reduces the time-to-productivity for new hires with integrated onboarding mechanisms that boost the learning of standards and best coding practices established by your teams.
Promyze provides features to gather best practices during code reviews and raises discussion topics to be discussed with the whole team. This moves discussions about standards from 1:1 discussions to a dedicated collective workshop to establish them. Thus, we reduce bottlenecks and latency, improving the overall change lead time.
Each bug whose root cause is linked to a source code issue can be reflected in Promyze, with a best coding practice to avoid that is accessible to all engineers, helping to learn from mistakes collectively. Then, counter-measures can be implemented in Promyze to reduce the likelihood these bugs would happen again. The Dantotsu/PDCA concepts have inspired this philosophy.
Promyze has been designed for developers to help them create, share and reuse best coding practices in their daily tools (IDE and code reviews tools) to ensure knowledge sharing won’t be felt as a burden. Promyze integrates native mechanisms to reach these 3 goals and sustain them in the team’s habits. Thus, engineers can stay focused on their work while leveraging their expertise with others.
Promyze allows sharing best coding practices for various domains, including programming languages, frameworks, architecture, performance, accessibility, or green IT. Thus, it can leverage the knowledge of a group of experts to make valuable best coding practices available to anyone in the organization. With Promyze, you can prioritize the domains you want to address.
Best coding practices created by your engineers aren’t intended only to be kept internally. Indeed, there exist different ways to value this expertise outside your company, including:
Promyze, the collaborative platform dedicated to improve developers’ skills through best practices sharing and definition.
