As a fully volunteer-run nonprofit operating remotely to serve our startups, we are seeking to build our first intranet to automate our internal operations, improve our data capturing and analytics, and provide a digital ecosystem for our startups to get engaged with our students and professional mentors.

To ensure that this platform remains stable and bug free we plan to add automated tests to the project to ensure that developers are confident to make changes, which allows them to build new features faster. This is in line with the TDD ( Test Driven Development ) programming paradigm which is adopted by almost all big companies.
