Competitive gaming has taken off in popularity over this past decade. The rise of competitive gaming genres (battle royal, first person shooter, sports, etc.), as well as dedicated streaming services and rising social media gaming stars has created this new craving for structured formats and events that revolve around these competitive video games.
Our clients at Guaranteed Gaming have a website, where gamers are looking to scratch their competitive itch and find various tournaments to enter. Not only can gamers sign up for tournaments for the game of their choice once registered to the site, but they can also wager in-site currency on themselves, or possibly others.
We sat down with DevDigital’s Cody Landrum, the project manager who oversees the development of the site, on how the site came about and the unique features it offers gamers.
DevDigital: Have you built a website like this...
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...

Ever wish you knew the price you’d get for something before you took it into a shop to sell it?
Sometimes it’s a painful process because you want to get the most bang for your buck of said item, despite it not holding any significant value to you anymore.
Those trying to sell catalytic converters also run into this problem.
For those unfamiliar, a catalytic converter (usually known as a catcon) is “a device used to reduce the toxicity of emissions from an internal combustion engine.” Introduced in 1975, these converters are still commonly used in cars and other various engine-equipped machines (trucks, buses, trains, etc.). And guess what, there’s some serious money in these things!
The folks at Belanger Recycling have a solution to make sure their freelancers get the right amount of money for their finds with a process that’s also time efficient.

What is the Bourbon Street Reservation System?
The Bourbon Street Blues Reservation System is a web based app that enables Bourbon Street Blues guests to make automated seat reservations for specific seats during specific time periods. Prior to creating the Reservation System, guests were filling out a contact form on the Bourbon Street Blues website requesting specific times and seats. A manager was then responding to each email individually and either letting each guest know that "Yes, their reservation is confirmed" or "No, the seats and times requested were not available.” When a seat was not available, there was a lot of back and forth with the guest trying to find different seating or times.
The process was very time consuming; our manager was probably spending 20-25 hours per week (7 days a week) just responding to reservation emails. Bourbon Street Blues did a lot of research...
What is Time Miner?
Time Miner is a mobile app designed for professionals who bill for their time and use their smartphones to talk and text with clients. Prior to Time Miner, the only way to keep up with your billable time on your smartphone was to make real-time notes, scroll through your phone records at billing time, or later try to remember the calls and texts you had with your clients. Time Miner eliminates those ineffective and inconvenient methods to save you time.
How Does Time Miner work?
To begin using the app, simply add your clients to Time Miner, and the app will find your past calls and texts with your clients on demand. Time Miner also produces a report that sorts the data by client including the following: when the calls occurred, how long they lasted, and how much the call is worth, based on your hourly rate. There’s no longer a need to keep up with your billable...

1.) Your website is not responsive.
Having a responsive website is key when developing a new website. If your site is not mobile friendly, Google will ding your site and push you down the search list.
2.) Your website was built using Flash.
Flash is a thing of the past, web developers are no longer using Flash when creating website. If your site still runs on Flash it's time to start thinking about a new website.
3.) Your website was built more than 4 years ago.
Web design is constantly evolving, and your website should evolve to have the latest and greatest design! Visitors to your site want to be greeted with a fresh design and not feel like they are browsing the internet in the early 2000’s.
4.) You tried to create your website yourself but found the “Do it yourself sites” confusing and inefficient.
After you spend a few hours on these sites, you will realize it is time to call...
