What do Brown M&Ms Have to do with Outsourcing?

It is a folklore that has been proven true. In the 80s, Van Halen had strict conditions to remove brown M&Ms from their dressing room at the tour venues, or the show promoter will forfeit their money. The 53 pages typewritten rider contained the condition that along with a wide selection of beverages and food, M&Ms must be provided, but absolutely no brown ones. Years later, David Lee Roth charmingly explains the truth behind this clause in his video – that it was not a silly rockstar misdemeanor excess, but an intelligent safety check measure. Simply put, if the band found brown M&Ms in the dressing room, they will assume the promoters have not taken care of all the electrical and mechanical safety conditions in the rider. Then the band would spend time checking everything with a fine-tooth comb to ensure a safe and flawless show.

In other words, it is a simple assumption that if someone has taken care of the small stuff, they certainly can be trusted to take care of the big things. Just like Van Halen, check if your outsourcing partner has done the small things right. If they did, you could rest assured that they will take care of the big things.

Access to everyone on the team

Did the outsourcing company set up a meeting early to introduce everyone on the team? Such meetings are impactful when done with video. You should have all the details to reach everyone on the team – their emails, phone, skype, etc. Easy access increases communication among the teams. Highly collaborative companies set up Slack channels to communicate instantly with team members. Do you have easy access to the provider’s senior management? The provider’s leadership must check in with you periodically. When needed, you also should be able to get their senior management’s attention.

Transparency in daily activities

You should know what your outsourced team does every day. Though they maybe thousands of miles away and separated by timezones, you should get brief but crisp updates each day – on Slack or via email. Your daily stand up may include them to provide the updates. The remote teams should be check-in code into your repository every day. Weekly timesheets with a judicious amount of details will provide better insight into the time spent on various activities throughout the week.

Empowered Client Partner/Project Manager

Your project manager must your trust to make decisions on their end – as well as demand changes on your side – to ensure mutual success. While you have access to all of your team – who are hyper-focused on coding, testing, etc., you need a client partner who has your perspective to make everyday tactical decisions. They do not lose sight of the forest for the trees. The project manager should make specific, concise, and realistic communication about what they need and expect from each other. Do they take the liberty to suggest process changes? To put is crude, while you may have many backs to pat, you need one throat to choke.

The flexibility of the engagement

Good partners make the engagement flexible for both. Does your outsourcer lock you down with long term commitments and penalties? An outsourcing provider should be agile in terms of process, contracts, and other demands. How easy is it for you to scale your team up or down with relatively short notice, say weeks and not months.

How well do they treat their employees

“Customers will never love a company until the employees love it first.” — Simon Sinek

Companies that treat their employees well, certainly will treat their clients well and value them. When employees are valued with trust, respect, and dignity, they perform at their best. High performing teams will produce results that matter to you. See if your outsourcing vendor provides their employees a good work/life balance, continued carrier training, rewards, and recognition.

In summary, little things make big things happen. See if your outsourcer takes care of some of these small things. If they do, then you can trust that they take care of more complex and critical things too.

Use EmberJS and Simplify Complex Web Application Creation

What is EmberJS?

EmberJS is a free, open source JavaScript framework for developing complex web applications using Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern. EmberJS relies on client-side templates and uses handlebars templating library which provides expressions to create dynamic HTML-based templates. An EmberJS developer can bind data to these embeddable expressions and dynamically change the display of their applications, on-the-fly.

Example:

<ul>
 {{#each member}}
 <li>Hello, {{name}}!</li>
 {{/each}}
 </ul>

EmberJS’s Benefits

  • It automatically creates router and controllers when you have not defined the same
  • It auto-updates Handlebars templates
  • It has excellent routing features
  • Its EmberData looks perfect for syncing data between your app and a server API and/or localStocalStorage (especially if your server code follows a few conventions, Restful routes…)
  • It supports RESTFUL JSON API
  • It supports Localstorage
  • It supports Fixture Adapter

EmberJS in comparison with Angular.js and Backbone.js

In general, all the three frameworks have a lot in common, i.e. they are all open sourced, come under MIT license, follow MVC architecture and support single-page web applications. However, a couple of noteworthy observations are, Angular.js’s Community option is worth highlighting and EmberJS uses Handlebars template engine which can be integrated with several third party template engines and Backbone’s default template engine.

EmberJS’s features

Router:

Routers are the URL representations of the application’s objects and it manages the URL and transitions between them. It is the central piece that coordinates various building blocks. The goal of the router is to query the model and make it available to the controller and the template. For example, routing to users, would be,

App.Router.map( function() {
 this.route( 'users' ); // Takes us to "/users"
 });

And Users router would be,
App.UsersRoute = Ember.Route.extend({
model: function() {
return App.User.find(); // Gets all the users from User Model
}
});

Model:

Model is like database data that can be retrieved or updated by Ajax calls from routes or we can rely on Ember-Data to simplify the retrieval and updating over a REST API.

User model would be,

App.User = DS.Model.extend({
 name : DS.attr('string'),
 email : DS.attr('string'),
 bio : DS.attr('string'),
 creationDate : DS.attr('date')
 });

Controller:

Controller gets a model from the route and then, it builds a bridge between the model and view template. Controllers are auto-generated by EmberJS if you don’t declare them. For example, user controller would be:

App.UsersController = Ember.ArrayContoller.extend({
 /*Properties*/
 actions:{
 /*Custom actions like create, edit & delete users...*/
 createUser: function(){
 /*code to create an user*/
 }
 }
 });

View:

View represents the visual parts that users can see in the browser. View is normally associated with a controller, template and route. Views are useful when we handle events or custom interaction that are impossible to handle in templates. Views are useful to play jQuery and they are helpful to create reusable views like modal boxes, popovers, date-pickers.

Template:

EmberJS uses Handlebars for templates. It is a lightweight templating engine which is maintained by the Ember team.  A template is a HTML markup, where we can print model data and the template automatically updates when model data get changed. We can keep our handlebar template code in a separate .hbs or .handlebars files. Few examples,

&lt;span&gt;{{userNickName}}&lt;/span&gt;

The above code binds the user’s nick name in UI. So, the user can see the new nickname changed when he changes it.

&lt;img {{bind-attr src=userProfilePicture}} class="profile_picture"/&gt;

The above code dynamically binds the profile picture with an image tag.

Helper:

Helpers are functions that modify the data before it is rendered on the screen. For example, it would be better to show a date as “29th February, 2016” instead of “Mon Feb 29 2016 13:37:39”. This can be achieved using helper by giving specifics such as {{formatDate date}}. Here “formatData” is a helper function and “data” is the input to helper. For example, helper creation code would be,

Ember.Handlebars.helper('formatDate', function(date){
 return moment(date).fromNow();
 });

And calling the helper object would be,

&lt;span class="date"&gt;Created {{formatDate creationDate}}&lt;/span&gt;

Components:

A component is a ‘view’ but it is completely isolated. To simplify, there is no access to the surrounding context. In ‘view’, we could get an associated controller using this.get(‘controller’) which is not the case with component. It is a great way to build reusable components like custom select boxes, auto-complete field, reusable charts. A sample component creation is:

componentsconfirmBox.js

App.ConfirmBoxComponent = Ember.Component.extend({
isVisible: false,
actions: {
//Handle your action here
}
});

..templatescomponentsconfirm-box.hbs

{{#if isVisible}}
<div class=”confirm-box confirmin”>
<h4>Really?</h4>
<button {{action “confirmDelete”}} title=”yes”> y </button>
<button {{action “cancelDelete”}} title=”no”> n </button>
</div>
{{/if}}

Computed Properties

Computed properties are properties that depend on other properties. The values of these computed properties are cached by EmberJS until one of the dependent properties change. Ember then recalculates the value of computed properties and caches it again.
