Every now and then, another rating of the most popular programming languages arrives, prompting decision-makers to question the choice of language for their new project. Luckily, various ratings by RedMonk, GitHub, PyPL Index, Tiobe, StackOverflow and suchlike depict that the changes on the top 10 languages list are subtle. We have compiled our own go-to guide to the best coding languages in relation to the business challenges they address.
Living side by side with smart devices has been a convenient and comfortable practice for all of us for quite a long time. But what do we know about modern washing machines or coffee makers apart from which buttons to push? Not much. Their sophisticated performance remains invisible to ordinary users because hardly anyone looks inside these machines.
Global warming and other negative consequences of human activity for the environment lead to the fact that the global society is becoming more environmentally conscious. The rising concern over the poor ecological situation is prompting people to search for ways of addressing it, and they seek for solutions everywhere, including in the information technology domain.
Every version of а software product has its lifecycle, which inevitably finishes with discontinued support. It happens when a newer version is ready to replace the older one.
December 31, 2019 is the mainstream support end date for Sitecore 8.2. In this regard, current Sitecore customers should not panic, but rather read our article and decide whether they have to move their existing solutions to the latest versions of Sitecore 9.
Sometimes, we need to import Sitecore content data in the scope of migration or deploying process. In general, we can use Sitecore Migrations tools (if we need full migration). But if we just need to export content data, we can use Sitecore Package Designer, Unicorn or TDS.
In my case, we needed to migrate dozens of content items (more than 40 000) from Sitecore 7.5 to Sitecore 8.2. And we had only Sitecore Package Designer.
The main issue we faced was the long processing time (a couple of hours) of Sitecore Package Designer. This was the trigger for us to release our Sitecore Data Transfer tool.

As required by the era of digitalization and automation, if companies want to succeed, regardless of their size, they should provide accurate planning and real-time control of processes and resources, which can hardly be completed without digital technologies. For this reason, companies develop and integrate special software solutions — ERP systems — that quickly perform these critical tasks and greatly improve business performance.
In this article, we will provide the ERP definition, explain what benefits it can bring to your business and how you can create such a solution.
Every company, no matter what services or goods it produces, has to deal with three most important values: time, price and quality. These are three pillars for clients when they choose something to buy. They want either a quick delivery, or a reasonable price, or excellent quality. Obviously, there’s no technology to provide these values in one product simultaneously; clients can expect two of them at best.
For most customers, when asked about the importance of these values, it usually comes down to quality. In this article, we would like to focus on the software quality and the way it is achieved and supported during the development process.
Digital transformation is touching upon various physical objects, making them smart and powerful. The engine for such devices is embedded software that is an integral part of the rapidly developing IoT ecosystem.
This article is dedicated to the tools for embedded software development. We will explain what an embedded system is and what types of tools are needed to build one. You will also learn about the most popular embedded system software development tools currently available on the IT market.
Learning of possible software aberrations as soon as possible, so that you can resolve them before you find yourself buried under a mountain of complaints, or even worse — to discover that users have switched to robust competitor solutions, is a must in your business.
In this article, we will provide an overview of a Microsoft solution that allows engineers and developers to stay up-to-date on software performance — Azure Application Insights.
