With the growth of DevDigital, now entering its 11th year in business with over 1,500 projects and over a million programming hours logged, there has been a need for the company to expand its staff. The undertaking of more projects means more programmers and specialists are needed at their company in Vadodara, India. However, as more complex projects are started, DevDigital has decided it has needed boots on the ground in Vadodara to help oversee the various databases and provide guidance on some of the information created by these projects.
The company hired Micheal Hunt March 1 for the role of Senior Data Architect and IT manager. As Senior Data Architect, Hunt will design schemas for DevDigital’s databases, oversee training for data access and storage, set policies related to same, and direct Database Administrators.

March Madness has arrived! It’s that magical time of year where friends, family, and coworkers gather together to fill out brackets for the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, hoping to correctly predict as many correct outcomes as possible for bragging rights.
Correctly scoring the best bracket is no simple task. The odds of scoring a perfect bracket are one in 9.2 quintillion. But like Han Solo famously said, “Never tell me the odds!”
Although a perfect bracket might be out of the question, there are still plenty of ways to manipulate the data in your favor when filling out your bracket and trying to figure out what upsets to call and to avoid. Listed below are a few data centers that implement some advanced analytics you can look to during your quest for creating the optimal bracket and that one shining moment.

The Super Bowl is widely regarded as one of the most globally-watched television events every year, and one of DevDigital’s clients, Glow Motion, played a big part throughout the weekend for Super Bowl 53.
Glow Motion, who puts together interactive LED lighting displays and installations for sporting events and concerts, was asked to create such installations for the halftime show featuring Maroon 5, Travis Scott, and Big Boi.
Mitch Ballard, one of DevDigital’s founding partners, was on site in Atlanta to help oversee the procedures. He is also the global sales manager and handles day-to-day operations for Glow Motion, so he played a big role in putting everything together.
If you watched Maroon 5 play, you may have noticed the LED beach balls bouncing around the crowd. Those were a product of Glow Motion, and there were 100 of them in total that night. 950 custom LED panels were also...

After moving into its new office a few months ago, DevDigital hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony Dec. 12 for its new location on the third floor of the Tennessee Education Association building. Over 100 people attended the ceremony, including members of the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce who oversaw the ribbon cutting.
DevDigital made the move from its last space at the historic Berger Building on Rosa L. Parks Blvd in August after spending close to six years there. However, as the company began to grow and accumulate more clients, employees, and projects, it was a necessity for DevDigital to make the change to its current site.
Located right down the road from the heart of Germantown and First Tennessee Park, the office space features six meeting rooms, a spacious work area for project managers, a full kitchen, and an open lobby. In addition to DevDigital, the location is also home...
Subscription-based businesses are everywhere now.
Do most of your home-cooked meals revolve around Blue Apron or Home Chef? Have you created a playlist on Spotify? Do you read The Athletic daily?
All of those businesses are just a few of the leading catalysts for today’s model of paying for access to content and product.
Book publishers and periodicals in the 17th century were believed to be the first to implement this model. Today, there are a bevy of businesses and websites that follow this standard, and it continues to be a way for businesses to capitalize on revenue growth. In 2016, the subscription-based market boomed by more than 100 percent over five years. The biggest retailers who followed the model produced more than $2.6 billion, up from $57 million in 2011.
So, why have businesses who abide by this standard suddenly become so prevalent and successful?
For starters, clients...

Last week, many parts of the world celebrated Diwali, the Hindu lights festival that spans over a five-day period and coincides with the Hindu New Year. It’s a celebration of light over darkness and good over evil.
Many of our friends and coworkers in our Vadodara office celebrated Diwali and shared their experiences with us. Here’s what they had to say:
“It was my daughter's first Diwali! We celebrated along with my paternal family. My family was very excited especially my grandparents as they were celebrating the first Diwali with their great-granddaughter.
I tried my hands on Rangoli, which came out to be pretty well as a beginner. The days were spent following our family custom of doing "pooja", visiting temple and spending time with family.
In a nutshell, it was a complete blast of fun with family.” -Rahul Upadhyay
“Diwali is one of the most awaited festival in India. It...
