Third Party API's: Pros & Cons

What is an API? An API is short for an Application Programming Interface, and it is a great “shortcut” for developers and coders to utilize when building an app or a website. Simply put, an API provides developers with various operations they can use instead of building a new operation from scratch. This provides consistency across the app and saves the developer a ton of time since they do not need to get into all of the nuts and bolts of the code. API’s help developers by not making them have to reinvent the wheel over and over again for basic needs of various apps and websites. For example, if you wanted your app to have the capability of taking a picture or video, the coder would not have to create a new camera interface for your app. Instead, the coder simply uses the API that is already available and integrates it into your app.   Advantages and Disadvantages of Third-Party API’s...

The Tech Behind Fireworks

With the ending of June and the beginning of July, you begin to see the red and white tents popping up all over the place with hundreds of fireworks to purchase. However, for the big, jaw-dropping Fourth of July fireworks display in Nashville, they do not rely on the typical backyard hand-lit explosives to receive the crowd’s “ooooo’s” and “ahhh’s.” Instead, technology is a driving force behind the amazing firework displays that we get to enjoy on the Fourth of July and other special events.   Fireworks are now equipped with microchips that are activated remotely and pre-programmed by the pyrotechnician to shoot off and explode at a specific time in the night sky. This is one of the ways technology has enhanced firework displays that are synchronized to music for our viewing pleasure. Another microchip in fireworks is known as a Pixelburst Shells. These microchips transform the...

New iOS Update for Enhanced Security of Your Personal Data

If you’re an Apple iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch user, you got a notification earlier this month for a software update. So what all is included with this new iOS update? Ultimately, the 11.4.1 software update focuses on improving security and minor bug fixes. A security feature that is now available for your Apple devices is the USB Restricted mode setting. This setting prevents your personal data from being hacked through the use of USB devices by private companies or law enforcement agencies. If the USB Accessories feature is on, it allows USB accessories to connect to your device when it has been more than an hour since your iPhone was locked. To turn off this feature, click on Settings, then Face ID & Passcode, then scroll towards the bottom of the screen and you will see the toggle for USB Accessories.

Thank You!

We appreciate everyone who came out to celebrate our 10th anniversary party earlier this month! As you may already know, we are moving our office to the North Capitol area, which is close to First Tennessee Park. We feel very fortunate that DevDigital has grown and thrived so much in the past ten years that we now need 7,500 square feet of space as opposed to our previous space of 4,000 square feet in the Berger Building. Currently, during the renovation process of our new office space, we are busily at work in E|SPACES in Belle Meade. We are looking forward to moving into our new offices at the Tennessee Education Association building on 801 2nd Avenue N. in September.
