    Improved Navigation in JustCode

    One of Telerik JustCode’s most valuable features – its quick code navigation, recently got even better. We decided to re-think the way our Camel Case Searcher works. Our main priorities were to deliver more than expected, show you what’s expected on top ASAP, and greatly improve searching flexibility – we did all that. Camel Case Searching allows you to quickly find entities by typing either their acronyms or parts of the words that are contained in it. When you use capital letters, or separating symbols, JustCode will try to match them with the word beginnings; splitting your search text with spaces...

    So you went to work for the cool company that wooed you with promises of cutting edge technologies and techniques. In the interview, they told you that they are agile and unit test everything. You may or may not have been in an agile environment before, but the important thing you are enthusiastic about joining a team that truly gets software development.
