The objective today was to bring to light how beneficial this would be for Norwegian software vendors, as well as general enthusiasts for their growth strategy,” said Dag Honningsvag, expressing his views at the seminar.

“Evolve Oslo also became a platform for like-minded digitalization enthusiasts to come together and share their views, and this was exactly what we were hoping for. As digital evangelists, we are looking forward to enabling this transformation for the entire European region very soon,” he further added.

Frontend, backend разработчики Ruby on Rails, Go, UX/UI дизайнеры соберутся 28 Okt 17 на конференции SphereCon, Киев

Киев, Украина, Oct-20-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — Front-end и back-end разработчики Ruby on Rails, Go, а также UX/UI дизайнеры со всего мира соберутся 28 октября 2017 года на конференции SphereCon (http://bit.ly/SphereCon), организованной Sphere Software, для установления рабочих связей и ознакомления с подходами передовой практики от экспертов Sphere. Это бесплатное мероприятие состоится в конференц-зале Interia, расположенном по адресу ул. Владимирская, 49а, Киев.

Поскольку Ruby и Go постоянно развиваются как ведущие языки программирования, возрастает потребность в обсуждении об изменениях и расширении их сети. Это побудило Sphere Software и ее генерального директора Леона Гинзбурга организовать SphereCon – возможность для разработчиков собраться на бесплатную однодневную конференцию, поддерживающую обсуждение этих программ.

«Мы организовали SphereCon, чтобы делиться своими знаниями и обучать сообщество разработчиков, как создавать масштабируемые программные продукты, которые могут работать в условиях высокой нагрузки и требующих высокой производительности», – говорит Леон Гинзбург. «В Sphere, мы разрабатываем масштабируемые продукты для быстрорастущих компаний, и для нас важно поделиться этим опытом с сообществом, потому что это даст разработчикам конкурентное преимущество в долгосрочной перспективе».

Вклад профессионального опыта в систему разработки программного обеспечения является основным принципом для Sphere Software с момента ее создания в 2005 году. Sphere Software осуществляет это посредством конференций, open source проектов, блогов, тематических исследований, обмена знаниями, Sphere Academy и разработки собственных продуктов.

«Как разработчик, вы всегда должны стараться усовершенствовать свои знания в области программирования», – добавил Гинзбург. «Это не только делает вас более востребованным, но и более универсальным разработчиком. SphereCon – это отличная возможность наладить контакты с другими разработчиками и помочь им расширить свою профессиональную сеть».

Axiomatics offers fine-grained policy-based access control and dynamic data masking and filtering

CHICAGO, Oct-05-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — Axiomatics, the leader in fine-grained dynamic authorization, today announced that KuppingerCole has profiled its data-centric dynamic authorization suite in a recent analyst report titled, “Executive View – Axiomatics Data Security.” The report sheds light on two flagship products; Axiomatics Data Access Filter for Multiple Databases and Axiomatics SmartGuard™ for Big Data, both of which apply an Attribute Based Access Control mechanism across different types of data stores, and centralizes policy-based authorization rules for access to the content within these data stores.

KuppingerCole’s Executive View describes the solutions in detail and offers advice to IT professionals looking for data-centric security. The Axiomatics Data Access Filter offers policy-based access control and dynamic data masking and filtering for relational databases. Implemented as a database proxy, the product intercepts all connections to the database from any user or application and analyzes every SQL statement for potential violations of applicable security policies. In accordance to the ABAC approach, the authorization service may query multiple attribute sources for additional context information needed for a fine-grained access decision.

SmartGuard™ for Big Data (the most recent addition to Axiomatics’ data security portfolio) extends ABAC-based dynamic authorization to Hadoop Big Data stores. There’s a growing need to ensure consistent fine-grained access control and maintain regulatory compliance for Hadoop. These infrastructures often comprise multiple loosely coupled components, and Big Data stores are used to store massive amounts of data from numerous sources with multiple applications accessing them simultaneously. Utilizing ABAC for transparent dynamic access control to a Big Data store for multiple analytics applications allows enterprises to combine all the benefits of a single data warehouse with the traditional siloed approach, where each application has access only to its own data silo.

“For years, we have been tracking the information security market. As data security threats rise, Axiomatics continues to lead by offering solutions that help companies with fine-grained policy-based access control and dynamic data masking and filtering. Axiomatics Data Access Filter for Multiple Databases and Axiomatics SmartGuard™ for Big Data are a natural expansion of the company’s comprehensive suite of dynamic authorization solutions,” said Alexei Balaganski, lead analyst for KuppingerCole and author of the report. “Whether deployed standalone or as a part of an enterprise-wide ABAC infrastructure, these products provide an additional dynamic security and access control layer around multiple data stores transparently and without any application changes.”

“Our relentless focus on solving the toughest problems in data-centric security, have made Axiomatics the choice for IT professionals and companies looking for data security solutions to complex big data environments,” said Gerry Gebel, vice president of business development at Axiomatics. “We are honored to have such a distinguished analyst like KuppingerCole continue to review our suite of products. Their reports further underscore its commitment to delivering cutting-edge information on data security in the era of digital transformation.”

Pipemetrics taps into the emerging market trend for higher quality Windows software

Lausanne, Switzerland, June 25, 2015 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Overwhelmingly positive user response confirms strong demand for well-crafted Windows software.

Pipemetrics (http://www.pipemetrics.com) marked the first year on the market of its flagship product Bvckup 2 (http://bvckup2.com/) by announcing that an analysis of user engagement data shows substantial and growing demand from Windows users for higher quality standards.

Windows has been traditionally associated with software that focused on the technical elements first and the user experience second.

Founded in 2012, Pipemetrics was set up with an altogether different take on Windows software. By marrying industrial system engineering with nuanced visual and interactive design, the company develops software that is as lean and powerful as it is beautiful.

This month marks the first anniversary of the release of Bvckup 2 – the first embodiment of company’s design principles. A simple, single-purpose, yet sophisticated and performant local backup software for Windows.

“When we launched Bvckup 2 we wondered whether our high-end engineering philosophy would be accepted by users,” explained company’s founder, Alexandre Pankratov. “After all it’s not uncommon for Windows software to compete on how many things a product does rather on how well it does them. After the release, we were very pleased with the positive reviews in the media, but what completely caught us off guard was the avalanche of compliments received from actual users.”

Conceived for professional, enterprise and advanced home users, the functional power of Bvckup 2 is harnessed through a precise and intuitive interface to deliver a robust user experience.

“This overwhelmingly positive reaction shows that a growing number of Windows users recognize and look for software polish as a feature in its own right. Windows users’ expectations are changing; simply having lots of options is no longer enough.”

Sample of user feedback*
“Bvckup 2 is one of the best pieces of software I’ve used in the last 35 years. Does what you said; solves my problem; Fast.” Michael Fuller

“A truly beautiful, precise and well-executed piece of software.” Riyad Kalla

“Simple, minimalistic, yet so powerful.” Ivan Kolevski

Product information:
Bvckup 2 (pronounced “Backup 2”) is a mirroring data backup software for Windows. Select a pair of directories and the app will make sure that one stays an exact copy of the other. It is light, uncomplicated and includes a comprehensive array of supporting features. It is also incredibly fast.

Company information:
Pipemetrics SA is a Swiss company founded by Alexandre Pankratov, formerly of the Hamachi VPN project, acquired by LogMeIn after growing to 3 million users in 18 months. The company draws extensively from his experience combining advanced engineering and interface design to produce simpler software for complex tasks.

steps + sleep, The Top-Rated App for Ensuring Long-Term Health, Available Free for iPhone 5s Today

Available free today, steps + sleep is an app engineered specifically for the iPhone 5s, taking advantage of the new capabilities in Apple’s new M7 processor to deliver the world’s best steps and sleep tracking app, all with negligible incremental battery drain.

Consistent daily activity and sufficient sleep are two of the most important factors in ensuring our long-term health. Simply by increasing awareness and making small changes in our day-to-day lives, we can decrease our risk of heart disease and long-term ailments, increase our odds of living longer, and improve our overall health and happiness.

While many of us make resolutions to do better, it’s easy to fall out of the habit: our wearable device runs out of battery, we forget to sync the data, or if we’re using an app or spreadsheet, we miss a couple days and lose interest.

Steps + sleep is designed to fit seamlessly into your life. No manual input or expensive wearable to buy, just download the free app and carry your phone with you, and it runs in the background and takes care of the rest. You can see your daily steps right from your iPhone’s home screen, set targets for daily sleep and steps, and begin a streak of days you’ve accomplished your goal.

Additionally, using the chronos points system we’ve developed that takes into account both your activity and sleep, you can get a quick sense of how you’re doing for the week: anything over 100 for the week, and you’re doing great. Anything over 125, and you’re really crushing it.

Steps + sleep is developed by Chronos Mobile Technologies, which founded by Dylan Keil and Charlie Kubal. Official advisors include Tristan Walker (former Head of Biz Dev at foursquare) and David Michaels (former VP of Engineering at mint.com). The beta version of chronos, the flagship product, launched onstage as one of the TechCrunch Disrupt Finalists in September 2012, and chronos 2.0 launched in August ’13. Since then they’ve collected and analyzed billions of location data points. Chronos has raised an initial seed round and is based out of offices in San Francisco’s Mission District

Indie Developer One Little Goat Pleads with Apple CEO – Stop Rejecting My App

One Little Goat proprietor Philip Lemon, believes his app was rejected solely because one of the eight celebrity caricatures in the game is based on the late Steve Jobs. He supports his claim by providing the following correspondence from Apple;

“We’ve reviewed your app and determined that we cannot post your application because it appears to contain features, namely, imagery, that bear a resemblance to several well-known third-party marks, including Steve Jobs.”

Phil’s response to this was, “Well Duh, it’s a parody. Do a search and you’ll find dozens, if not hundreds of apps that use the likeness of celebrities. I didn’t see Apple taking down Joustin Beaver when Justin Bieber sued the game maker for using his likeness. “

There does appear to be both censorship and double standards at play when you consider that blatant copyright rip-offs like Mole Kart, Ultimate iZelda Climb and Pokemon Yellow were all approved by Apple. Phil reports that he has questioned Apple about this inconsistency, and has requested Apple specify which elements of his game are in breach of copyright, but his questions have been met by a firewall of silence. This stonewalling is what prompted the open letter to the CEO of Apple and Mr Lemon decided satire was the best way to deliver his message.

When asked why he hasn’t just removed the offending cartoon character Mr Lemon replied “I could remove Peeved No-Jobs (Phil’s pet name for the character) but why should I have to? Apple isn’t North Korean and I’m not making fun of Kim Jong Il – at least I think I’m not”.

Though he supports Apple’s vetting of apps based on quality and security, Mr Lemon is against certain Apple developer policies such as the one that states;

“we (Apple) may reject or remove your application for any reason, in our sole discretion.”

Like most mobile developers worldwide, One Little Goat relies on sales through iTunes and not having his game available there could lead to commercial oblivion. Celebrity Smack is available for Android devices through Google Play and Amazon and Mr Lemon hopes his game will garner enough support through these online marketplaces to make the game financially viable.

“I think it is totally unacceptable that a company that dominates an industry built on ideas can dictate what people share,” Mr Lemon says. “They’re an American company and the majority of their paying customers are from democratic countries.”

When asked if he would submit future apps to iTunes Phil responded “Definitely. I’m like most game makers, I just want as many people as possible playing my games and enjoying them. Hopefully Apple will improve its policies or Android will become the platform of choice for developers.”

Philip Lemon is a developer and artist living in Melbourne, Australia. One Little Goat is the name of his studio and Celebrity Smack is his first solo game. Past achievements of Philip’s include being the lead Animator on the iOS game Desert Zombie, Executive producer on the Australian film The Hobby Farm, and authoring the children’s novel The Barbarian Librarian. Philip loves doing interviews and can talk at length without saying um. He has been told his voice is melodic and well suited to radio but this is yet to be proved.

LIFESTYLE Los Cabos, leading luxury villa vacation rental provider and property and destination management company based in Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, Mexico, has entered into 2013 ready to satisfy the increasing demand of internet savvy travelers with a completely revamped website, a free Los Cabos travel app, and with new luxury vacation villas added to their inventory.

“90% of bookings today we receive on-line, 40% of those are our return customers, and 50% are new customers, who before making a reservation, make an on-line research about the destination, special offers, villas, and the provider itself. Many times travelers communicate with us on Twitter @LifestyleVillasFacebookPinterest and/or TripAdvisor, in order to see our villas and services, other customer’s feedback and that we are a trusted vacation rental provider to whom they are willing to trust planning their vacations in Mexico.”

In comparison to around 30% of reservations received by the phone 3 years ago, today only 10% of guests call in to reserve their stay, explains Alejandro. “We acknowledge the importance of internet in our everyday lives, that’s why our core upgrade in service offerings was to completely revamp our website, make it user friendly and with responsive web design. We created a Free Lifestyle Villas travel App as well, which gives any Los Cabos traveler all the information about Cabo San Lucas and neighboring towns, landmarks, restaurants, activities, and events, besides that the app gives our guests a handy tool to reach their concierge, see Villa amenities, order in-villa Private Chef services, spa treatments, order transportation and other services anytime they want, wherever they want.”

Lifestyle Villas’s villa rental program consists of a carefully selection of stunning beachfront, ocean and golf view villas and condominiums in Los Cabos’ most prestigious developments which have been standardized & are complimented with added value services for guests.

Newly added villas are Villa Pacifica and Villa Buenaventura, both 5 bedroom ocean view villas in exclusive gated community Blue Sea, and Villa Pericu and Villa Guaycura, two 5 bedroom private villas located in the Punta Ballena luxury residential community, which is home of Esperanza, an Auberge Resort.

New iPad App Gets Children School-Ready

Parents are preparing to send their children off to school for the first time. An Australian Mother of two has developed a way to give children entering school in this technological age a head start by creating an educational iPad app.

Rebecca Monument said that she, like most parents were aware that basic literacy skills developed in the home long before a child starts school.

“I created the app because I wanted to give my children the best of every possible opportunity,” said Ms Monument. “I was worried as my kids weren’t learning the correct way to write the alphabet, that they would have to re-learn it when they started school.”

After the application was released in October this year Ms Monument approached a local teacher for feedback. Ms Tanya Burton from Whitehouse Primary School in Australia agrees that Writeforschool is a resourceful learning tool for young children, and that the app that will complement the introduction of iPads into the prep classrooms in 2013.

“The application combines many features that other similar writing applications fail to deliver, like a variety of accents and a choice of the writing fonts taught in Australian schools” Ms Burton notes. “The large number of fonts back up what is taught in the school curriculum; it not only includes letters and numbers but blends of letters.”

The idea came to Ms Monument and she began developing the iPad application Writeforschool after her children, aged five and six began taking great interest in playing the games on her iPad.

“I thought if I could make educational game for my children, they could begin to learn to write in the cursive they are taught at their school the correct way,” Ms Monument explained. “My children love the app and its exciting graphics that can be completely personalised.”

Ms Monument hopes that her application is able to help as many young children as possible get a head start for this school year.
