Intive Blog
Intive Argentina's blog emerges as a space for spreading and discussing the knowledge that our staff creates, circulates and regenerates in the corridors of the company and in instances of collective production such as our technologies' teams. It's a place of divulgation but above all, of autonomy, collaboration and creativity. We invite you to explore it and -through reading and comment exchange- be part of it. Welcome!

Typescript: Love at First Line of Code 

We had a huge project in our hands. The team was growing day by day and the code in Javascript looked unmanageable: there were folders and more folders of untyped code. We didn’t know how to scale up, nor how to integrate all the developers that...
