Defining a Technical Architecture

When doing long-term planning for an organization, it is really helpful to start with a statement of what the architecture is and what that architecture will encompass. The architectural definition of the technology that will be used will serve as a long-term guide for making technical decisions. In addition, a properly built architecture serves as an instrument of focus, direction, and prioritization for the organization.


Solid Software Design Principles

In this article, we will see SOLID principles and how to implement those principles while building a software application. Robert. C. Martin (popularly known as Uncle Bob) introduced the SOLID principle. Later, Michael Feather re-orders the principle to form the acronym. It helps to implement better code design, maintainability, and extendability.


10 Best Rapid Prototyping Tools

Prototyping is made easier with the software. In order to create a prototype as close as possible to your final vision, the best prototyping tools use design features, navigation elements, and interactions. During product development, this can help you avoid costly reworks. Rapid prototyping should be part of any project, whether it is a mobile app or a website design.


Popular Python Design Patterns

Python is one of the hottest programming languages in the world right now. According to StackOverflow’s Developer Survey 2021, Python is the third most popular programming language. It is primarily due to its easy-going syntax coupled with powerful dynamic typing and binding. In this article, we will focus on building efficient and scalable applications in Python using popular design patterns. Design patterns are standards or conventions used to solve commonly occurring problems.


A Primer on Cloud Architecture

The cloud is growing more and more popular each day. We are in an era where there is a prominent trend of companies migrating from traditional on-premise systems to more reliable and fast cloud-based systems. However, the conversion is still not rampant on a large scale, primarily due to the lack of awareness in the up-and-coming businesses about the cloud’s fundamentals. However, the cloud has proven to be a sound and worthy option time and time again.


What's the Best Version Control For Designers?

Version control is an essential tool for developers. But today, development includes more than just code. Using version control for artist and designers centralizes collaboration and secures valuable digital assets. In this blog, we break down why version control is so important for designers. And we answer — what's the best version control for designers and artists? Read on to learn more + see how a media company scaled Photoshop versioning.


5 Tips to Design Ruby on Rails Transactions the Right Way

Data integrity problems are among the most common database issues Rails developers face. Besides allowing for proper validation, correctly designed transaction blocks ensure that your data isn't partially created or updated. However, transactions can also harm your application — or even take down your whole database — when not properly designed. This article offers a set of good practices for working with transactions.


The Environmental Impact of Common Architecture Patterns

This is part of a 3-part series on APIs, sustainability, and climate change. Check out part 1 on managing a greener API lifecycle, and part 2 on ways to embed and innovate on top of third-party APIs to make greener products. In this final part, we will look at the environmental impact of common architecture trends and recommend steps to take to minimize the impact of each.
