Your company depends on software. There’s no way around it in this modern era of agile businesses and 24/7 delivery pipelines. Those apps and services you depend on might be developed in-house or you might even hire a third-party to take care of the engineering of software.

But no matter how you go about getting software developed for your company, there are tasks you must take on that you wouldn’t otherwise (as in, if you were using proprietary software purchased from a vendor). …


Ten years ago this statement would have been laughed at, even though there was a grain of truth to it. Now, things have changed.

If your job lies within the realm of IT, you probably know about Linux. Whether you’re a system admin, a security specialist, or a developer, Linux has probably been on your radar for some time. In fact, chances are already pretty good that you (or your company) are already using Linux somewhere in your pipeline.

Or maybe you’re the owner of the company, or the Chief Technology Officer, or the Chief Operating Officer, who makes serious decisions for the company. If that’s you, Linux most certainly should be within your field of vision.

Why? Because Linux is the future of…


Falling behind in container platforms means existing in the shadows of more agile competition.

If you’re in business as either an IT administrator or developer, chances are pretty good you’ve heard of containers. In fact, containers have taken enterprise business by storm over the past few years. What’s more — according to Gartner, worldwide container management revenue will grow to reach $944 million by 2024. In that same report, Gartner predicts “that by 2022, more than 75% of global organizations will be running containerized applications in production, up from less than 30% today.”

That’s significant. So if your company isn’t already working with containers, it’s time you started considering the option.

What are containers?

Simply put, containers…

Among the many challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 was an especially grueling year in terms of cybersecurity. In fact, some people talked about a “cyber pandemic” — a growth in attacks caused by the increased number of activities we started to do online, from shopping groceries to working remotely. By increasingly adopting cloud-based solutions to respect social distancing and stay-at-home orders, we multiplied the points of attacks and vulnerabilities.

But every cloud has its silver lining. In this case, executives from companies of all sizes started to finally understand that security has to be a priority at…


Artificial intelligence has found its way into nearly every aspect of the business pipeline. Now’s the time to do something about it.

When you think of Artificial Intelligence (AI), the first thing that comes to mind might be any number of science fiction books or movies. However, AI isn’t just for the keyboard cowboys of Neil Stephenson’s cyberpunk stories. In fact, AI has enjoyed a dramatic rise in popularity across nearly every sector of business. To put it mildly, AI is everywhere. And businesses that are lagging behind this adoption will eventually find themselves behind a very challenging curve.

Artificial intelligence has found its way into nearly every aspect of the business pipeline. And with AI, your business can enjoy much-improved processes…


Even though we’re far from next Christmas, I feel like this is a great time to revisit some of the most impactful apps from the last holiday season.

The holiday season, a period spanning from Thanksgiving to the New Year, is a time steeped in tradition. Secular and religious families alike gather to spend time with one another and celebrate.

But for many, it’s also stressful and chaotic. It means seeing people you’re not used to seeing regularly, cooking for a crowd, and going hours — even days — without a moment to yourself. That’s why these apps were incredibly popular last holiday season.

I’ve worked with remote teams for almost a decade in a company that was built to make the most out of this methodology. This is what you need to know.

Working remotely on a full-time basis has been quite a challenge for all the people that had no experience in the matter. It’s a completely different experience from those Fridays without scheduled meetings when you decided to work from home and all the common types of location flexibility that traditional companies offer.

This challenge reaches new levels of complexity when leading a team. Managers and team leaders have had the responsibility to keep everyone productive, connected, and engaged with their work. …


Open source is cost-effective, reliable, flexible, and helps your developers work smarter and not harder.

It’s 2021 and your business has endured a global economic downturn that could have easily taken your company through a catastrophic change (at worst) or watched all of the growth you’ve enjoyed return you back to square one (at best). Instead, you’ve weathered the storm and come out on the other side, ready to pick up where you left off.

In other words, you’re ready to focus on growth. This growth could encompass various aspects of your business: clients and customers, supply chain, products and services, staff, profit. There’s no end to how your company can expand. …


Digital acceleration isn’t a new concept, either, but it has taken on a new meaning over the last months.

Over the course of the last decade, many businesses have been steadily adopting new digital technologies to modify or enhance their processes. You might have heard about this trend as “digital transformation” and may have even read articles encouraging to go through your own — especially after the COVID-19 outbreak.

However, talking about digital transformation now feels outdated. The coronavirus has disrupted all plans and significantly increased the dynamism of the business landscape, so a transformation process (with all its implications about carefully planned tech adoption) is now giving way to another trend: digital acceleration.

Digital acceleration isn’t a new…


Today, I want to walk you through the process of installing .NET Core on these three platforms.

If you are a software engineer serious about cross-platform development, chances are pretty good you will, at some point, work with .NET Core. After all, the primary purpose of .NET Core is to enable developers to create .NET applications for nearly any operating system.

So instead of having to hire developers to take care of Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, Linux, and server applications, a single developer (or team of .NET developers, such as those from BairesDev) could work with one framework to meet your needs.

That’s what .NET Core does.

And .NET Core offers plenty of outstanding features, such as:
