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.

Bird Is or Isn't The Word?

There have been many conversations in Nashville recently about how to improve our public transportation system to meet the needs of our growing population. Perhaps you have noticed in the past couple of months an influx of men and women flying around the downtown area on electrical scooters. This new form of transportation was one solution offered by a company called Bird. The company was founded in 2017, and its main vision was to provide a shared transportation system that was environmentally friendly, user friendly, and friendly on the rider’s wallet.   A Bird scooter is the ideal mode of transportation for a person who needs to get to a place that might be too far to walk, yet too close to call a Lyft or an Uber. The user simply downloads the Bird app on his or her smartphone, which pulls up a map locating the closest Bird scooters that are available to ride. After finding a, ...

We're Moving!

We’re moving! We are a little sentimental about leaving our beloved office space at the historic Berger building; however, with the ongoing success and growth at DevDigital, we need a bigger space to reach the needs of our team and our clients. The Berger Building is a historic landmark on Rosa L. Parks Blvd. in downtown Nashville and has been operating as a space for local businesses to operate since 1926. In 2012, we felt very fortunate to move into a building that is on the list of the National Register of Historic Places. At that time, we had only six employees and had not yet discovered the potential of the basement space below (if you’ve attended a DevDigital party, you’ve surely checked out the “best kept secret party room” in Nashville.) Speaking of the “best kept secret party room” in Nashville, in the past six years we have hosted TONS of celebrations and emptied hundreds of...

DevDigital's Work Enables Automatic Billing For Smartphones

We were thrilled to work with Time Miner to launch their app that is revolutionizing the way professionals bill their clients for their time used with a smartphone to talk and to text. Before this app, professional would have to go through the time-consuming process of billing by making notes with pencil and paper, scrolling through phone records, and recalling phone conversations and text messages by memory to keep up with billable time.  Sean Martin and Pierce Schubert had a vision to create an app that is not only easy to use, but also functional for the users. We were honored to work with them to achieve their goal. It is no surprise to us at DevDigital that they were honored at the ABA Techshow in Chicago and voted as one of the top three legal technology startups!   https://www.bizjournals.com/businesswire/press_releases/2018/04/24/20180424005057   Time Miner launches first of...
