If you've ever thought about a project, be it an app, software or what have you, you know how all kinds of ideas can pop up, but are they all realistic to the kind of product you’re looking for? This is where scope becomes not only a necessity, but a means by which the process can be made simpler both for those generating ideas and for those developing said ideas. Scope lays out all the information needed to take a project from layout to requirements and so on. In other words, you can get a project from start to finish that much more easily and realistically.
Ever been stuck with software that just isn't cutting it? Mainstream software has been around for a while and many companies have built their businesses off the franchise, but that doesn't necessarily make it the best option for you. This is not to say that there aren't instances when open source software fails as well, but it seems like the problem can be addressed much more easily. So, put that prepackaged software back on the shelf and read on as we explore some of the benefits of open source.
There are all kinds of event-driven programming networks in existence today and each has strengths and weaknesses. With a set of powerful tools to handle Internet protocols, Twisted has emerged as one of the best for networking. Enabling writing, testing and code deployment, Twisted comes with application servers and protocol implementations for almost everything. Moreover, thanks to its foundation in Python, simple programming on a secure framework means quick turnaround on projects. Let's dig a little deeper into Twisted.
Computers love repetition and it can be a time consuming task to start a project with the same process time after time. A common solution to this is to have the computer generate repeating patterns for you. This technique is called Automatic programming. HTML and CSS involve a lot of repeating patterns, and LESS is a tool that makes generating CSS a lot easier. So what happens when you want to make LESS faster? Introducing "Less Colors"!
If you've ever sent out RFPs (Request for Proposals), you know about the wide range of bids that will come in response. Before you make a decision, there are a number of things to take into consideration when reviewing your options. The level of experience should be at the top of your list, followed by things like ethical practices, standards and behavior, organization, and timeliness. Such factors add to the differences in project estimates, but there's another factor that shouldn't be overlooked. The type of company bidding on the project can also make a significant difference on an estimate.
