Learning SQL and a Smattering of Python

By Scott Burns

I want to let you in on a little secret: our product, strategic resources group (SRG), and data services team members are the real healthcare experts here at Stratasan.

Our team of developers are pros at what they do: running data warehouses and computing infrastructure that our applications use to store and analyze complex healthcare datasets. But we rely heavily on the expertise of our team members to prioritize what needs to be developed within our applications.

Based on their direction, we learn what our customers are asking for and then determine what new features and products to build. Working hand in hand, our teams create useful tools that can derive insightful meaning from healthcare data.

Recognizing the need to close the gap between our development know-how and their healthcare insight, we’ve taken steps to improve the flow of communication between our teams and proactively facilitate interdepartmental collaboration. Our goal is to decrease the time it takes to get a product to market so we can more efficiently address the needs and goals of our partners.

Confident Asset Deployments with Webpack & Django, part 4

Posted by Scott Burns on Sep 29, 2016 3:06:41 PM

  

In the previous post in this series, we've described how at Stratasan, we integrate our Webpack builds into our main Django application. By moving the specific links to our Javascript and CSS out of our Django templates and instead using django-webpack-loader to render these tags, our deployments become more stable and less error-prone.

We want to finish this series with a few niceties that we've built for ourselves to improve our process of delivering valuable software to our clients.

In the previous posts in this series, we've explored why we've switched to delivering front-end assets with Webpack and how we configure our Webpack builds.

Here, we're going to cover how to integrate our Webpack builds into Django so that our site serves links to the newest version of our front-end assets.

An Intern's Insights: My Summer at Stratasan

Posted by Nhung Hoang on Sep 2, 2016 1:46:40 PM

Contrary to popular belief, software developers don’t hide behind their computers all day long and create ruthless memes. While I never subscribed to this line of thinking, to begin with, I got official confirmation of its inaccuracy this summer while interning at Stratasan.

Confident Asset Deployments with Webpack & Django, Part 1

Posted by Scott Burns on Aug 4, 2016 11:43:17 AM

 

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to present to DjangoCon US 2016 about how the technology team at Stratasan delivers front-end assets. We've honed this process over the course of a year and are happy with the flexibility and simplicity it allows us. We believe providing concrete examples taken from our codebase will benefit the community.

You can find my slides here.
