In Ackee, we focus on the maximum quality of the delivered solution already since 2012. Our technological knowhow, professional attitude, timely deliveries and gentlemen’s agreements is appreciated by customers such as ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab, German Bundestag or Livesport.

The real-world RPS game is simple and pretty much everyone knows how to play it. The mobile app didn’t aim to add cool new ways to play the game and tried to be as simple as possible.
All our apps are developed in several different environments. Let’s have a look at what we call an environment, what the motivation to have different environments in one app is and what type of inconveniences it could bring. We’ll also unscover a part of our technological stack which helps us to do it the way we do it. ?

I have been working with React for about four years now. It has been quite a ride and for the whole time the data dependencies management has been an important topic for me. In this article, I would like to show you my journey with the data dependencies management and the result I came up with.
