After a full month at Titansoft as interns, we have come to learn more about Titansoft’s Agile culture. So, what is Agile software development?
Agile is often compared to the traditional Waterfall methodology where a linear approach is taken with software development; each stage is generally finished before the next one can begin. On the contrary, Agile methodology emphasizes the rapid delivery of an application in complete functional components, with a high commitment level from the client throughout the project. With Agile, all tasks are “time-boxed” into phases called “sprints”.
In Titansoft, each sprint lasts a week within which a running list of deliverables planned at the start of the sprint is completed. Deliverables are prioritized according to their value as agreed by the stakeholder and product owner. If all planned tasks for the current sprint cannot be completed in time, work is reprioritized and the information is used for future sprint planning.

Has been a while I’m automated my house and office. Recently I’ve bumped into Home-Assistant which blew my mind away! There are thousands of components available for install. one of it is Dyson fan, which is running on MQTT protocol.
The result was cool, You can now automate it to function accordingly to your lifestyle. E.g. turned it on when you sit on your working desk or turned it off the next minute after you walk away from your desk and etc.
How far can it go? is it limit by your imagination.
Let’s build one!

Bright and early at 9.30am, the 5 of us arrived at Titansoft, ready for our first day of internship. We were welcomed by our friendly HR colleagues, Sky and Jessie, who tapped us in to a quiet office and explained Titansoft’s unique flexi working hours where Titaners get to plan their own work schedule, as long as work gets done!
As interns, we received a brief orientation where we played some ice-breaking games to learn more about each other and Titansoft. For Summer 2018, we have 4 Software Developer (SD) Interns and 1 HR Intern (who says operational role interns are not welcomed in a tech company!)

The Global Scrum Gathering Singapore 2017 was organized by the Scrum Alliance and was held on 17 – 19 July 2017. We here at Titansoft are very passionate about supporting the local Agile community. In addition, we are extremely thankful to the local Agile community in our journey to become the Best Tech Company to Work For in Singapore 2017.
Thus, it only became natural for us to be the gold sponsor for this event to show our appreciation.
We did the Polls… again!
Similar to what we did at the Agile Conference 2016, we decided to consult the community for a few questions that we have had as well as help the community out by getting responses for their posted questions.
