.Net bootcamp in Montreal

Finding new developers has always been a big challenge for tech companies. There are not that many developers who are looking for jobs at the moment your company look for a new recruit. From that small number of developers out there, just some of them have knowledge or experience with technologies you use in your projects. Lots of students and graduates are looking to get to the job market fast and start a successful career. Getting the goal oriented, intense education and hand on experience is why they look for a bootcamp. There are just a few bootcamps in Montreal and they teach a limited number of technologies. You will get disappointed after a quick research for bootcamps and training programs for .Net technologies.

Logo d'Analystik en cire pour cacheter une lettre

Back to the essential; Analystik revisits its corporate identity!

Analystik has come a long way since the creation of its last logo in 2005; several clients have joined the portfolio, including Laurentian Bank, Hitachi Capital Canada and Wells Fargo. And many things have changed in 10 years but our corporate identity…

However, despite the progress made, the different management styles and development methodologies used, the numerous evolutions of systems, frameworks and mobile platforms; our workhorse has always remained the same, the process, and our goal has also always remained the same, quality on all levels.

As a result, when the time came to review our corporate identity, this reflection led us spontaneously to a refreshing approach rather than a recreation process.

Will we save our tech jobs, and avoid turning into the next third world?

You think: come on you! Right? Ok, read on. We live in North America and still think that we have the lead on technology. This creates a safe feeling for our tech jobs. We have exported the manufacturing jobs in Asia because manufacturing became just too expensive and the manpower grew unwilling to work for low wages. We probably also hoped that by creating wealth in a very populated area of the world, we would create a big new customer base.

Odoo-Magento integration module

Communication between two systems is always complicated. Last week we tried to install a module to make a bridge between Odoo and Magento online shop. Odoo-Magento integration module is ready to use and available on Odoo website for free. This is not one of those modules that you can just install with one click. On another hand, you can communicate with multiple online shops created with different platforms like Magento or Prestashop. The creators of the module prepared a website with documentation and installation guides that you can use.

7 good reasons for the enterprise to migrate from Windows 7 to Windows 10

Does the enterprise need to migrate from Windows 7 to Windows 10 or from Windows 8 or Windows XP for that matter? It is our opinion that upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10 will definitely be a positive experience for the consumer in many regards; but what about your enterprise?

The fact and the matter is, from both a marketing and technology perspective, it seems like enterprises will also benefit of migrating from Windows 7 to Windows 10 although it might have immediate repercussions on which Microsoft, apparently, has thought about!

There will be a migration cost in terms of adaptation efforts for the personnel, but also in terms of applications and systems migration and, in terms of application development process changes, which we shall explore more deeply in the next post.

Let us remind that the Windows 8 misfire (and its « metro » display which was meant to be the first serious trial at a standard multiplatform display), combined with the lack of Microsoft Smartphones and BYOD, opened the door to both Apple and Google to bring along massive volume of mobile devices among enterprises. Hence, one might question the true penetration potential of Microsoft mobile devices running on Windows 10?

Gulp & Visual Studio

Visual Studio is one of the most popular software to create application or website in .Net environment. This software supports Sass and Less but it doesn’t compile those two languages making them complicated and useless.

In the new version (Visual Studio 2015), Intellisense has not been fixed and still has difficulties to make links between Sass and Less file types.

Even so, the new version of Visual Studio offers some new features that help us with these problems.

How to use Gulp on Mac Windows & Linux

Gulp plugin is a task runner. For example, you can easily: transform your Sass (or Less) files in css files, minify them, using autoprefixer, join them in 1 files, check your JavaScript files with jsLint and much more. If you code a little bit it can be really useful. It is one of my favourite tools for my web site development and it is totally free. It might be a little frightening at the beginning but with some practice and courage, it is easier than it looks.
