Introducing the FT Technology Department Blog

Welcome to the FT Technology Department Blog. Here we will be sharing our experiences with technology which hopefully others can benefit from as well as offering up things we have built.

Our perspective is that we do some great work at the FT but we are not a startup working without baggage so we can provide some informal and balanced views on how to deal with the practical issues that occur when old and new tech have to kiss and make up.

Hope you enjoy what we have to offer in posts from areas as diverse as infrastructure (e.g., decommissioning), software development (e.g., BDD), and software as a service (e.g., how to pick a vendor), complementing our sister blog at FTLabs, and other themes such as a History of Tech in publishing.
