Most of the testing tools are too complicated. For a long time we’ve been looking for an automatic testing framework to meet our needs. We tried a lot of frameworks like Selenide and CasperJS but they were not exactly what we’ve been looking for. Not so long ago, we’ve discovered a tool Codeception and I want to introduce you to it.
Magento 2 is becoming more and more popular day after day. Many vendors decide to use this platform for their eCommerce business.

An office manager is an obvious hire for any company. The very definition of an office manager implies that there needs to be an office. Thus if you have one, after reaching a certain size there is no question whether you need a person, who provides day-to-day comfort and maintenance of the working environment.

Because what matters in the long run is the result.

Every one of us has a perfectionist inside. Still we often do not see the consequences of the dark side of our design. Some common everyday issues may turn into real problems and affect us. If you think reasonably, it should not be a problem to do some simple things even if you assume they are not 100% right. But not for a perfectionist! You may become depressed even with minor mistakes, which one might not even consider to be a problem. It should not always be a fear of a bad result, but also a fear of making a decision.
