Evolve 2017 Oslo speakers: Dag Honningsvåg, Jostein Magnussen, Hasith Yaggahavita & Per-Christian Svendsen

OSLO, Nov-8-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — The 99X Technology team aired its first international breakfast seminar, on winning with the digital evolution this 25th at Kulturhuset in Oslo. As a first of a series of seminars to be kicked off in the coming years, Evolve 2017: Oslo was all about bringing the digitalization wave to Norway’s tech and innovation community, with knowledge and experience sharing sessions from industry thought leaders in the region.

Directed specifically at enthusiasts looking to transform their business models to digital, and enhance revenue by adding core value to products or services, the seminar was held in partnership with Netlife Design, Norway and was an insightful two hours for the audience. The speaker panel featured Dag Honningsvåg (Chairman of 99X Technology, Driw AS and Bylineme, and Former CEO of Making Waves), Jostein Magnussen (Co-founder of Netlife Design), Hasith Yaggahavita (CTO at 99X Technology and founder of IgniterSpace) and Per-Christian Svendsen (CEO of Boligmappa AS).

“The opportunities are endless with digital transformation. We know this first-hand and we have proven experiences where software products have achieved sustained growth over the years, working with many different ISVs across the world. 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.

Commencing with Dag’s comprehensive introduction to digitalization, the seminar was taken over by Jostein who shared very informative insights on handling clients in the digital era of information clutter, followed by Hasith who elaborated on the next big thing after the SaaS hype. Per-Christian then concluded with an interesting view of how the digital transformation journey works, taking his own success with Boligmappa AS as an example. Overall, the tips and learnings were a great directive for the audience.

This seminar marked the end of a fruitful engagement in Norway by the 99X Technology team, which also included a company showcase at Webdagene 2017, Scandinavia’s largest customer experience conference, last week.

Oslo, Norway, Oct-26-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — Leading software product engineering specialist 99X Technology recently showcased at Webdagene 2017, Scandinavia’s largest customer experience conference, organized by Netlife Design Norway.

The show which housed over 15 Exhibitors and entertained more than 1,000 visitors is an annual convention which spans across two days, featuring a line-up of industry thought leaders and top players in the digital sphere in Europe on its speaker panel. The aim of the show is to bring participants up-to-date on latest trends in world-class digital user experiences. Webdagene was held from 18th to 20th of October this year, with the first day being a workshop-oriented session, and second and third days dedicated to the exhibition.

Having played an active role in digitizing leading European ISVs (Independent Software Vendors) with over 150 successful software products in its portfolio, it was a great platform for the team from 99X Technology to display some of Sri Lanka’s best product engineering skills to the European region and its IT community.

“While we have maintained an active presence in Norway over the past decade or so, Webdagene brought us face-to-face with some of the key players in the digital sphere in the whole European region. In addition to being a fantastic experience with so many inspiring individuals, it also proved to be a great opportunity, where we gained good insights into Europe’s evolving technology landscape. This exposure helped us align our digital offerings better for European market as a global software product co-creator,” said Hasith Yaggahavita, CTO of 99X Technology, while expressing his views on the event.

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».

Unlike anything else on the market, BigDayBliss will incorporate an award-winning Website and App, providing companies selling wedding products free and instant access to their ideal target market. The service offers a perfect platform for a business to engage with consumers and promote individual products by making a profile for  brides, bloggers, celebrities, grooms and industry experts to explore and share.

Businesses build their online profile at Bigdaybliss.com and create an interactive, user-friendly catalogue of every product they have to offer. Brides and Grooms to-be can then construct their complete wedding by searching the endless database of products, connecting with other users to gain inspiration. They can “bliss” their favourite items, in order to build a wish list.

Although the website and App do not launch until next year, businesses and wedding service providers will have the opportunity to sign up for this one-of-a-kind service, free of charge. By registering early, companies beat their competitors to the market and can build an extensive portfolio which, when the service is launched, will appear to potential customers from day one.

New Apps Help Preserve Visual Memories

Digital imaging solutions company Ecce Terram, with headquarters in Atlanta, GA and Oldenburg, Germany, will introduce a new Facebook app named “Save Your Memories” at this month’s industry show 6Sight in New York City.

This step, and the introduction of a similar feature for the line of native mobile apps created by Ecce Terram for smartphones and tablet computers, is aimed at further simplifying and adding convenience to the way consumers save and share their photos.

At a glance, “Save Your Memories” automatically presents users with print order options for images newly uploaded to their Facebook albums or added to their mobile device camera rolls. The user is prompted to select which recently updated images should be ordered for print, using quick-select menu options which are based on the most commonly chosen selections.

“Save Your Memories” enables consumers to realize one of their main goals when using their mobile device or Facebook to store and share photos, according to Ecce Terram: to secure and preserve precious visual memories outside the digital sphere. After uploading new photos, Ecce Terram’s new “Save Your Memories” app offers convenient print order options right on the opening screen, for “All Images”, “Since Your Last Order”, “Last 30 Days”, or “Albums”.

“It’s all about peace of mind,” said Frank Simon, President, CEO and founder of Ecce Terram, and the company’s founder. “In today’s mobile world, the majority of consumers trust smartphones and Facebook with their digital photo collection. But phones break, or get lost or stolen.”

“What’s more, many people feel uncomfortable with putting all their digital photos in one social networking “basket”, Mr. Simon said. Ecce Terram’s new “Save Your Memories” app, he pointed out, answers the common need to securely preserve selected visual memories offline.

Ecce Terram, which started in Germany and is the creator of the “Photo2Lab Software Suite”, today is considered a pioneer of the digital imaging industry. “Five years ago, successful photo services providers were ready to take processing orders online when consumers sat down at a desktop computer,” said Mr. Simon.

“Today, you have to be ready to take an order the second after they take a snapshot with their iPhone or iPad, or when they update their photo timeline on Facebook.”

The “Save Your Memories” concept, Ecce Terram points out, is positioned to complement the company’s successful “Share your Photo Story” approach. A white-labeled “Share Your Photo Story” Facebook app, as well as social media and co-editing options featured in Ecce Terram’s Desktop Client and Online Client software, already enable consumers to jointly create and order photo products, for example by converting Facebook albums directly into presentable photo books.

Combined, the “Save Your Memories” and the “Share Your Photo Story” concepts answer photo services consumer needs and demands in a market that has rapidly shifted to mobile and social networking platforms. The added convenience of white-labeled solutions offered by Ecce Terram, the company believes, will help large photo services providers secure and retain market share and brand loyalty, and build and expand new channels.

The World’s Top Selling Stock Photographer Yuri Arcurs Launches His Own Direct Sales Platform (PeopleImages.com) To Pave The Way For Other Creatives

As off today www.PeopleImages.com is officially out of beta testing mode and live! For years, the major stock agencies have been pushing commissions lower and lower, reaching an all time low of 15% last year making it almost impossible for photographers to gain profit from selling their images online. This can be seen in comparison to Apple’s iTunes store where the artists receive a 70% commission for their work. Furthermore, with the introduction of micro prices in 2005, the stock industry has been under enormous pressure and few photographers have been able to survive of their meager earnings.

With www.PeopleImages.com Danish born Yuri Arcurs has shown that it is possible to make it on your own and sell directly to your customers. His site introduces services that all other artists would be able to offer clients, but which agencies would have a problem providing: Custom retouching, image exclusivity options and the ability to request more images of a specific model or particular style.

Quotes:
Lee Torrens (stock photography journalist – microstockdiaries.com)
“With the launch of PeopleImages.com, the hard work and smart decisions of Yuri’s stock photography career come together in a lucrative business model that no other stock photographer is positioned to pull off. What’s more, it pulls market power back from stock photo agencies who have been dropping photographer royalties for years.”

Jenan Mujkic (10 years experience in buying images online – sneezr.ca)
“This site makes all other sites look like they are from the last century. Take note, PeopleImages.com just jumped a curve!”

Yuri Arcurs: (Photographer, creator of PeopleImages.com)
“Very few people that buy images know how small a percentage of the actual sales price the artists receive. It’s a shame, because the small artists have a hard enough time already.”

http://arcurs.com/2012/06/www-peopleimages-com-has-launched-a-post-about-how-it-got-there/

Quotes from the text:

“Managing six IT guys would prove to be more time-consuming and more difficult than managing my entire business.”

“Very few people will tell you to your face “this will not work” or “we need to delete 1,000 hours of code work because it will create bugs.” Especially not if they are hired by you.”

“News of the launch was leaked to the media three days before our original launch date, and it was posted on the front page of the biggest newspaper in Denmark. It became quite clear what we had to do. We had to launch now. Not in in three days. Not tomorrow. Now.”

“All the tools that a normal manager can use to direct a project are inaccessible to an IT manager that is not a developer themselves.”

“We, as artists, are perfectionists, we have to be, but for a perfectionist to ever create anything great, you must be able to say: “Stop – Enough with the details!” and settle with the less attractive option.”

“Programmers love detailed planning, and most other people do, too, but great interactive design was never arrived at from the very first go-ahead. It is, by its very nature, an experimental process and you will find yourself often arriving at the best solutions when you start using the interface yourself. The only problem is at this point somebody has already had to build it and be ready to discard it.”

“We discarded the whole site two times and had to start over. Most people would consider that a total flop, a loss in all ways, but it ended up getting us closer and closer to having a thorough understanding of how the site would need to behave.”

“Preparing for the launch event, I had a 6min live TV spot lined up on the launch date in front of 1.5 million viewers. I was extremely lucky to get this pitched to the editor in such a way that they ended up running the story. But when it actually was about to unfold I was more nervous than I have ever been prior to any interview. I only had about 15 hours of sleep the last week before the launch, and had to be ready to go live at 8am in the morning with 4 hours of “airplane sleep” – and, naturally with all the stress involved in the launch, I fell ill the day before the TV spot. It was simply madness, but it had to be done and it had to be done well.”

Get a personal comment from Yuri for your article him directly on yuri@arcurs.com or his assistant on alessa@arcurs.com.

If you are creating an article we will grant you any image you would like from PeopleImages.com and set you up with a VIP account with $150 already on it. This should take care of any need of images you have for the article and still leave a decent amount on your account which you can use as you see fit.

We can process such requests very fast. Send to: support@peopleimages.com

New Review Site WasThatGood.com Delivers Independent Theatre Opinion

WasThatGood.com, a new site dedicated to bringing informed and independent theatre review and opinion to stage fans, has been launched in the UK.

The site has been introduced to address a demand for genuine, unbiased theatre reviews which are different from the now-standard sites which are full of intrusive advertising. WasThatGood.com will offer true, honest reviews of shows like Chicago and Billy Elliot from people who have actually been to see them and who are not promoting anything.

WasThatGood.com has been built by Robert Stuart, a big fan of theatre and shows, who was tired of trawling through websites which consisted of nothing but advertisements. The new site will offer impartial opinion, show times and the chance to buy London theatre tickets too.

Robert Stuart says, “There was clearly a gap in the market for a genuine, honest theatre review website – hence why I decided to introduce WasThatGood.com. There are far too many websites around which are advertising based and which actively promote shows – I wanted to have a place where all fans of theatre can share genuine reviews.”

In recent times the economic crisis has resulted in lots of people choosing not to go to see shows any longer for fear of wasting their money. WasThatGood.com intends to address this by giving people unbiased, genuine reviews via which they can make informed choices about which shows to go and see.

In addition to its review services WasThatGood.com will also host show time and date information and will let people search for the highest-rated shows by peer review. Users will also be able to buy tickets for shows all over the country through the site.

About WasThatGood.com

WasThatGood.com was born in an attempt to give the public a say in the world of theatre by offering an independent forum for them to share their opinions. The intent is to promote open discussion regarding the theatre, which could very well lead to improvement as theatres will have to face reality and will no longer be subject to only a handful of critics who have a channel to the public.

Powered by leading ecommerce platform provider Elastic Path, the upgrades are designed to maximize author agility in a rapidly changing publishing industry and ensure that readers can easily buy books online anywhere in the world, including the places they already shop like Amazon.com, the iBookstore, and Barnes and Noble’s NOOK Bookstore. Customers can expect an even easier to use Lulu.com with new capabilities such as registration-less checkout, faster browsing times, enhanced international language and currency support, improved address validation, and customizable marketing tools for authors, adding to Lulu.com’s already free ebook publishing services.

“Lulu and Elastic Path have made publishing and buying quick and easy,” says Matt Dion, Vice President of Marketing for Elastic Path. “Lulu is a great example of an innovative company providing their customers with a compelling value proposition, cementing Lulu’s leadership position in the publishing technology arena for years to come.”

The new platform creates an entirely new infrastructure for Lulu.com to build upon, which greatly increases the speed at which the company can release new features and updates in the future to better equip customers with the tools they need, when they need them. For example, Lulu.com’s soon to be available ecommerce APIs (Application Programmer Interfaces) enables businesses and publishers to build Lulu.com and Elastic Path’s ecommerce tools into their own branded websites, absolutely free.

“We’re constantly looking for ways to make it easier for our customers to take advantage of the ever-increasing opportunities in publishing today, from easily creating print and eBooks, to expanding author reach to more places,” said Bob Young, CEO of Lulu.com. “We’re in the business of removing limitations for creators and with these upgrades, we’re providing publishers, authors, and their readers, with a world-class ecommerce experience.”

With just a few clicks of a button, anyone can upload content to Lulu once, and sell it through a global network of premier retail channels as a print book or eBook, all for free. Creators set their own price for their titles and keep up to 90 per cent of the profit whenever their works sell.

Interested parties can learn more about self-publishing and the new and improved Lulu.com by visiting, www.lulu.com, while British users can visit Lulu UK at www.lulu.com/uk.

brightsolid and The British Library Publish 4 Million Pages Of Historical Newspapers Online

brightsolid and The British Library have announced the launch of a website that will transform the way that people use historical newspapers to find out about the past.

The British Newspaper Archive website will offer access to up to 4 million fully searchable pages, featuring more than 200 newspaper titles from every part of the UK and Ireland. The newspapers – which mainly date from the 19th century, but which include runs dating back to the first half of the 18th century – cover every aspect of local, regional and national news.

The website offers a wealth of material for people researching family history, including family notices and announcements and obituaries, while the ability to search by keyword/s, location, date and newspaper title means that people can search across hundreds of thousands of pages at a time as they track down that elusive ancestor. Searching the website generates free preview snippets of results found but users wishing to download full articles and images can pay to do so with a range of payment options available, including pay-per-view access for 48 hours or 30 days and a subscription package for a year. The website is free to use in the British Library’s reading rooms.

“The launch of the British Newspaper Archive website opens up the British Library’s newspaper collection as never before,” said Ed King, the British Library’s Head of Newspapers. “Rather than having to view the items on-site at the Library, turning each page, people across the UK and around the world will be able to explore for themselves the gold-mine of stories and information contained in these pages – and the ability to search across millions of articles will yield results for each user, that might previously have been the work of weeks or months, in a matter of seconds and the click of a mouse.”

The British Newspaper Archive is the result of a ten-year partnership between the British Library and brightsolid, announced in May 2010. Over the past 12 months, brightsolid’s digitisation team, based at the British Library Newspaper Library at Colindale, has been digitising up to 8,000 pages of historic newspapers every working day. The project is expected to scan up to 40 million newspaper pages over the next ten years. The site also offers high quality A1 prints.

Welcoming the new website, Ed Vaizey MP, Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries, said: “The British Newspaper Archive is a rich and hugely exciting resource, packed with historical detail. It’s a great example of the public and private sectors collaborating to deliver something that neither party could have delivered by themselves. I searched for my own constituency of Wantage and within seconds had 42,000 results – an indication of the breadth and variety of material featured.”

The launch and further expansion of the British Newspaper Archive website will help the British Library to fulfil its strategic goals of long-term preservation of and access to the national newspaper collection, including old London newspapers. The Library’s newspaper strategy aims to secure the future of this unique resource by moving the hard-copy collections from the current building at Colindale to a purpose-built storage facility in Boston Spa, West Yorkshire. Access to the collection will be provided via microfilm and digital copies made available at the Library’s main site at St Pancras.

BT Offers Small Businesses A ‘Kickstart’

BT Business has launched a finance scheme offering start-ups the chance to lease up to £15,000 worth of technology and telecommunications solutions. Under the ‘Kick Start Scheme’, in conjunction with Shire Leasing, new businesses trading for under three years will be eligible for funding subject to credit vetting.

BT’s ‘KickStart Scheme’, available through BT Local Business, aims to help small businesses raise funds in a challenging economic climate and to avoid having to rely on bank loans, overdrafts or credit cards.

‘KickStart’ offers start-ups the opportunity to purchase a range of technology and communications products and services including business telephone systemsbusiness mobiles, handsets, connection charges, software licences and IT equipment such as laptops, as well as small business IT support. The scheme is open to all industry types and has very flexible underwriting, aimed at delivering higher acceptance levels for new-start companies. An average £3,000 loan will cost less than £20 per week and can be added to as the business grows.

Declan McGlone, general manager of BT Finance, BT Business said: “The UK has an average of 270,000 start-up businesses every year. In light of the current economic climate we want to help these businesses access the products and services they need to get their new venture up and running. Our ‘KickStart Scheme’ offers finance over a fixed term, at a fixed rate, making it easier for customers to budget.”

One business that has already benefitted from a similar scheme with Shire Leasing is A.I. Global Media Ltd. The publishing company, established in November 2010, needed funding to purchase a technology and communications solution for its eight staff working on a new corporate finance publication.

Jane Peter, director, A.I. Global Media Ltd, said: “When starting out, it was crucial to launch the business in the most cost effective way possible. We needed to install a BT Versatility phone and broadband system, so that staff could work on the magazine straight away, but couldn’t afford any major spend. The leasing scheme allowed us to get the equipment we needed at a fixed rate and also meant we keep what capital we had in the bank to ensure we had some cash flow. This scheme really helped us get our business off the ground and we now have over 53,000 subscribers to our magazine.”

Karina Knudsen, Head of Business Development at the British Chambers of Commerce also welcomed the launch: “The BCC has long called for more support for small businesses. Financing that specifically helps start and grow new ventures will considerably reduce the current credit difficulties that owners face.”

New and existing BT Business customers will be able to take up the ‘KickStart Scheme’ offers as long as they have been trading for under three years, subject to a credit check. For more information about ‘KickStart’ and other BT products and services, interested parties can contact BT Local Business at www.btlocalbusiness.co.uk.

Cycleharmony.com Announces Release Of Mood, PMS Symptom & Lifestyle Tracker

Most people know that unhealthy lifestyles are the cause of many of their personal challenges in life, from being overweight to chronic fatigue to PMS/PMDD symptoms, just to name a few – challenges which can determine the very quality of their lives.

Yet few succeed in breaking free of these unhealthy lifestyles. Why?

According to Jing Jin, the founder of cycleharmony.com , “It’s because they’ve taken on an impossible task. An unhealthy lifestyle is almost impossible to break because it takes vigilance and an energy that few of us have. Think about the chocoholic who has to resist the temptation to eat a chocolate bar every minute of every waking hour. Talk about exhausting!

“If you want to break a bad habit, the key is not to focus on getting rid of it, but to develop a new healthier habit to replace it.

“I suffered from PMS and severe mood swings for years, and was in a lot of pain. It took a serious toll on the quality of my life and relationships. I wondered if what I was suffering from was rare, if I was alone – or if I was just crazy. I was neither, but I didn’t realize any of this until I made the decision to tackle the issue head-on. Now I’m living a happy, fulfilled life.

“The first big difference-maker for me was the series of small rituals I incorporated into my life – self-care routines including a balanced diet, regular exercise, sufficient rest and recovery, and better stress management. I believe most women can turn their situations around, whether they’re suffering from PMS/PMDD, depression, mood swings, fatigue or weight issues, by incrementally adding healthier routines to their lives. And it’s not a daunting task – if you know how to make them work for you effectively.”

That’s the reason Jing Jin founded cycleharmony.com, to share what she’s learned on her journey and help women discover their own PMS relief to create healthier, happier and more fulfilling lives. She also created a simple, intuitive and easy-to-use online tool called the Mood, PMS Symptom & Lifestyle Tracker to help women track their lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, sleep, stress and self-love, and monitor how these factors affect their moods, energy level, sex drive and PMS/PMDD symptoms. A simplified version of this tool is also available as an iPhone app called Mood Runner.

“It’s a great tool for anyone who wants to create a healthier and more balanced lifestyle,” says Jing. “If I can do it, you can do it too. The most important thing is to believe that you can accomplish whatever you set out to do. Because you truly can – if it’s really important to you.”
