Tech radar

You can access a preview of the radar here.

What ?

The Radar is a document that sets out the changes that are currently interesting regarding software development.
It is published by a company called Thoughtworks.
You can find more information about it here.

Why ?

We have developed this radar because we want to document the usage of technologies in our company in an easy way. People who wants to document something just need to push a new md file in the repository.



How to use it ?

The tech radar is built based on the elements specified in the jekyll collections define in the _config.yml file.

So, to add content to the radar :

  • Create a new md file under the desired category folder
    • _languages-frameworks
    • _platforms
    • _techniques
    • _tools
  • Add meta data to the file (in the front matter ---)
    • layout: details
    • filename: [name of the md file]
    • name: [title of the page]
    • image: [relative image url]
    • category: [languages-frameworks or _platforms or techniques or tools]
    • ring: [Adopt or Can Use or Assess or Deprecated]

Once you have created a new file, you can push it. The related item will be presented on the radar.
