What’s so special about the mobile web apps?
Imagine you’ve got the tremendous idea for the mobile content. You’re ready to share it at once for as many users as possible. Guess what comes next! You get your app optimized for Windows 8, Android, BlackBerry and the handful of other OS. You pay separately to each single team, since you do need separate teams for each kind of application to be created. When you finally get your apps, you contact the app store and go on begging them to take your product. Remember not to lose their contact since most likely you’ll beg them to fix any kind of small bug or make a review pretty soon.
Ready for this hell most of mobile application developers go through?
Still there’s a handy way to avoid all these unnecessary spending and delay. You can create one single app using HTML for it to suite any platform. That’s what Iflexion mobile developers do and that’s what they strongly advise you to do as well.
What’s the profit?
- Use the platform you like
No more need to struggle to cope with all kinds of platforms with all its specification. You save your money and efforts since the HTML app will easily get installed wherever you want.
Remember time when you had to download the whole website in order to search through the needed information? You had to dig through the whole mass of data in order to get what you really need. That was bearable when you work on PC, but became totally inappropriate the time you appeared to be working on any mobile device.
The reason is that the connection is unfortunately not as fast as on local PC. Moreover you have the limited screen and cannot accept there all the information at once.That is when the single page web applications appeared to be far more popular than full size websites.
Specialties of single-page web apps
Web app developers composed the front end to any content database. While website programming offers you to deal with all data at once, single-page applications let you pull the needed piece of data right into your hands without losing any time.
This year is rather rich on events made just for Ruby on Rails developers. The whole set of meetings will give them unique possibility to enlarge their experience and deepen their knowledge in various cases.
The nearest one will start really soon – meaning 3d of April. That’s the date when the Ancient City Ruby 2014 starts. Iflexion Ruby on Rails developers are going to participate in this event.

Let’s have a close look on CMS, what does it actually mean and how does it work?
CMS, also known as Content Management System, is designed mainly for business and is used in following fields:
- Development and design,
- Business cases,
- All kinds of smartphones including iPhone,

The main task for CMS is to make content delivery and authoring as easy as possible. With its help even users who are not common with technique can create websites, publish or stream in the web as well as create any kind of content. WordPress, Drupal or Joomla customization is what’s usually needed from web developer for successful site creation.
Let’s have a close look at most craved brilliants of the mobile ecommerce application design. A lot of sites have been redesigned lately in order to match the best expectations of nowadays audience.
Most platforms like WordPress, Shopify, Magento etc. are totally linked to shops’ designing. The latest trends make people redesign a lot of stuff, by the way some features get simplified as well as the others keep getting more and more complex.

1. Interface that is finger friendly
A lot of people will see your site on any kind of mobile device before they actually reach to in on their PC.

Some are made for stylus, others are more like multi-touch feature.
Trying to fix out what’s new in Java is much like trying to follow the cat – it just goes anywhere it wants, digging into whatever comes on its way. Same goes with Java that appears to be fully integrated in all kinds of mobile, cloud and other related spaces.
What we’re trying to do is to figure out the most visible paths Java is going to take in 2013.
Oracle appeared to be really linked with Java in most possible ways. This means application developers soon will have to cope not only with Java’s bugs, but with Oracle bad features as well. That’s what you shall get ready for right now. Also the credibility of Java has been severely damaged through its lack of security features we all could see in Java 7. This all led to the real bunch of users switching off Java.
We have to admit that usual ways of securing the application like firewalls are not working now. On the other hand more and more people are now using web applications and this is what shall be defended properly. Let’s see the best ways of how to secure the web application.
The strategy will mostly depend on the structure and architecture of the current application. Remember to test every defending system you come up with.
The main course will be the total agnosticism in the programming language.
The most suited case for the application developers and protectors is the well-known DEV522: Defending Web Applications Security Essentials.
Here is the list of main topics to be discussed there:
- Application language configuration
- Application coding errors like SQL Injection and Cross-Site Scripting
- Infrastructure Security
- Server Configuration
- Authentication Bypass
- Web services and related flaws
- Authentication mechanisms
- XPATH and XQUERY languages and injection
- Business logic flaws
- Cross-Site Request Forging
- Web 2.0 and its use of web services
- Protective HTTP Headers
The whole territory of the modern West Coast is well-known for the whole list of seminars with topics like computer Ruby on Rails programming and code-writing. Over 300 computer programmers are coming here regularly in order to get wiser about their specialties. The latest development format discussed there was Ruby in Rails.
The history of the whole program starts over 20 years ago. It’s now used on the popular sites like Twitter, Hulu and Groupon. Due to the growing community the conference took place on the great First Coast as the most attractive one. Usually these discussions took place in the California region.
The organizer of the conference appeared to be Jacksonville Beach computer development firm called Hashrocket. Its websites are primarily working on Ruby on Rails.
Ruby on Rails – popular or not?
The popularity of Ruby on Rails is mostly due to its easiness in use. You do not have to dig through the incomprehensible features to get to your goal. Also most scripts are shared for free.
