In Frankfurt, April 26-28, as part of a hackathon, DataArt will roll out a new mobile app that allows consumers to make donations to their favorite charities and organizations within 3 taps on their smartphone. Using the API’s from Gini and figo, DataArt will showcase an app that eliminates concerns around donating; digital records will show a consumer that their money has made it into the proper hands. In addition, customers will receive a digital receipt for their donation in near real-time.
The event was hosted by alumni from the European Business School, and was celebrating its 20th anniversary. Industry leaders shared post-graduate experiences and research across financial services, real estate, and a host of other categories. Visitors to the most recent event were employees from banks and financial services firms, asset managers, etc., and were there to learn about new market approaches and modern banking technology.
Mobile World Congress in Barcelona gave attendees a glimpse into the future, through the lens of the Internet of Things (IoT). It's amazing how far things have come in just a few short years (analysts predict between 26 and 30 billion devices will be connected to the internet in five years). Entire pavilions at the show were dedicated to the IoT and connected devices, with devices ranging from connected showerheads through automated drones on display.
As you may have seen this morning https://www.dataart.com/software-development-company/press-release/dataart-releases-open-source-video-player-using-mpeg-dash, we recently launched an open-source video streaming solution, built to use MPEG-DASH.
For around three years, MPEG-DASH has been the Next Big Thing; an ISO ratified standard that aims to create a better experience for content makers, advertisers, and more importantly, consumers streaming video.
New Apple Watch, while highly anticipated, remains predominantly a niche product despite high hopes in the industry. It’s not that the idea is wrong – no one disputes that wearables can improve our lives in many ways. However, to date implementation of the idea has been sloppy, and has failed to deliver on the promise of a brighter future. Now all hopes are pinned on Apple, a company known for its ability to enter a challenging market and change the environment with one impeccable product.
From the moment that THack Berlin was first announced, DataArt had no doubts that this was a great opportunity to share our ideas and knowledge of the recent changes in the travel technology space. Before arriving in Berlin, we spent several days polishing our initial concept. However, everything changed in the blink of an eye when a new idea for an app was suggested at the last moment.
The world is excited about the new Fitbit wearable devices. So is DataArt’s Wearables Competence Center. We decided to play with some of them to find out about the new development opportunities. This article is dedicated to Fitbit.
Sometimes during performance testing we have to deal with high-powered systems. Such systems can painlessly handle massive amounts of requests creating an extra headache: how can you emulate such a huge load yourself, without access to the full production side hardware capabilities? Another situation occurs when the system to be tested has multiple servers where the behavior is controlled by forces on the client’s side, and therefore we have to handle a geo-distributed load.
I think every performance engineer has faced the aforementioned issues at least once in his experience. The solution is to use distributed agents to emulate the load. Almost all commercial and free software provide abilities for the utilization of external agents which work simultaneously, increasing the amount of the overall load. In this article, I would like to talk about the ways to make the most popular free performance tool emulate the load from different agents. More specifically, I will talk about JMeter and its performance load agents.

Do software developers really need Agile management tools to produce quality products which satisfy clients’ requirements
To an outside observer, the development process may seem rather simple; teams receive requirements and funding and then release a working application.
DataArt IoT team has prepared the 1.3.1 version of DeviceHive, its IoT/M2M framework. The new release is now available for a download.
We’ve added some new features, like the ability to login to a DeviceHive playground via OAuth from Facebook, Google+ or Github accounts. Our team did this by introducing a new authentication endpoint in the REST API, which allows clients to exchange the OAuth authorization code for a DeviceHive access key. As a result, the Admin Console now includes colorful “Sign-in with …” buttons.You can find more information about 1.3.1 release at the DeviceHive page.
