Software engineer Martin Wahl reports on his entry into the ALLEGRO project with the Federal Employment Agency:

“Do authorities remind you of outdated technologies and slow processes? That's a prejudice. Rather, the project by Capgemini and the Federal Employment Agency (BA) in Nuremberg showed me how well teamwork can work thanks to state-of-the-art software and efficient process optimization. The conversations with my new colleagues were about technologies like Git, Gerrit, SonarQube, Mockito, Jira, Maven and Jenkins. It became clear to me that tools and team are working together here with a high level of quality awareness. The technology used is state-of-the-art - it has to be for a project of this size. And the fruits of our teamwork are innovative management software solutions from which millions of people in this country now benefit. "
