Improving software delivery in every organisation

Made Tech Engineering Docs

This is the technical documentation hub for Made Tech. You can use this resource to discover and learn about applications and open source libraries we have built both for ourselves and customers.

Primarily this resource is for Made Tech software engineers but we hope it’s useful for other folk too.
