What’s in it for you to upgrade your PHP system?

Like all technology, the programming language PHP continues to evolve and see new changes. A few months ago, we discussed in one of our blog posts why we program with PHP and the benefits of using a scripting language since the mid-90’s. DevDigital has nearly completed the process of migrating the upgrades to the newest version of PHP 7.2 for 500 customer websites. We understand, however, the hesitancy of the client to make this update. It may seem like sticking with their PHP version (usually 5.6) is an ideal solution if the site continues to function normally on 5.6. But, we would encourage those on the fence to consider making the switch. Below are a few reasons why a PHP upgrade is necessary for your website. Support has passed All PHP 5.6 supported websites will no longer receive support, feature updates or fixes, as 5.6 has reached it’s EOL (end of life.) Each PHP version goes...

4 reasons why we're continuing to program in PHP

DevDigital has been working around the clock to upgrade its PHP servers and migrating those upgrades for 500 customer websites. To some, PHP (formally an acronym that stood for personal home page, but now stands for hypertext preprocessor) might seem like outdated programming and a thing of the past, thanks to some of the newer programs that have come out. However, we are still massive advocates of using a scripting language that has been around since 1995. Below are a few reasons why we’re continuing to go with PHP for our primary programming and server needs.   1. It’s still universally used. PHP provides coding to a massive number of websites across the globe. A lot of this can be attributed to Facebook being its most prominent user, but there are also plenty of Fortune 500 companies, such as Lyft, Slack, Tesla, Yahoo!, and Word Press who rely on PHP for their scripting. In fact, a...

Changing the game: Healthcare Industry

Change is imminent in all aspects of life thanks to technology. No matter what avenue of life you’re in, the developments of technology have somehow had an impact on your life in one way or another. Some are minor (the ability to call transportation with the touch of a button) and some are major (the fact that your cell phone is now a computer). Of course, one of the biggest advances in technology come in an avenue that we’re all affected in; the medical field. These have had a positive impact on the world we live in. Access to information on certain diseases and cures can be found with some savvy search engine research. The devices physicians and nurses have access to have helped improved overall health over the past decade or so. However, they’ve also brought some negative effects, most notably the cost. “Health care spending in the U.S. continues to rise. It’s now over $3.5 trillion...

Escape Game kiosks helping to create efficiency with customers

The Escape Game is quickly becoming America’s favorite real-life, puzzle-solving experience, with a variety of platforms for thrill-seekers to choose from. The popularity of the escape room phenomenon has been exploding over the past couple of years now. In 2014, there were only 22 escape rooms in America. Now, that number has eclipsed to over 2,000, including three Escape Game locations in the Nashville area. Escape Game seems to have laid claim as the most popular escape room company across the United States Even with three, the sites all get a heavy barrage of visitors looking to test their wits and nerves as they try to work together to complete the objective assigned to them. To combat the large crowds, the Escape Game at Opry Mills have installed kiosks outside their location, helping cement that they might not be just the most popular escape room company, but also the most...

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...

Facebook Data Leak and GDPR

Last month, the social media giant, Facebook, notified 87 million of its users that their personal data had been breached. These users personal information was accessed by Cambridge Analytica, a data-mining firm. Their plan of attack was through the use of a third-party quiz app to gain personal information about Facebook users in an effort to build psychological profiles to target voters with political ads. Facebook is now responding to this unfortunate breach in security by providing their users with the information that the third-party apps are using and how to delete them. To prevent this catastrophic leak of personal data from happening again, the European Union is putting forth a piece of legislation that could have a big impact on some of the biggest technology firms, Google and Facebook. This piece of legislation titled the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) was approved...

The Tech Behind Stephen Hawking

  On March 14, 2018, the world lost Stephen Hawking, one of the greatest minds of our time. Hawking explained the universe to the masses and pioneered many discoveries concerning quantum gravity, general relativity, and cosmology. Although Stephen Hawking spent half of a century in a wheelchair due to ALS, he continued to research and share his discoveries with the world with the help of assistive technology. With assistive technology, Hawking could lead a more independent life that allowed him to continue to share his remarkable ideas with the world. In 1985, Stephen Hawking lost his ability to speak, but this did not slow down his desire to communicate his ideas to the world. He began communicating by raising his eyebrows to certain letters on a card to spell out words. This process of selecting letters to form words was eventually developed into a computer-based communication. ...

Understanding Blockchain

Cryptocurrencies have continued to gain popularity over the past couple of years. Some popular cryptocurrencies that you may have heard about in the media are BitCoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Zcash and Ripple to name a few. Needless to say, there are new cryptocurrencies emerging everyday. While the emergence of this new form of currency is exciting, the thing that is really grabbing people’s attention is the technology that makes cryptocurrencies possible: Blockchain. To understand the basics of Blockchain, consider the following analogy. William Mougayer explains in his book, The Business Blockchain, that Blockchain is similar to a Google doc. In a Google doc, two users can work on a document simultaneously as opposed to working on a Microsoft Word document. Changes are continuously updated for everyone to view in a Google doc without the hassle of opening the doc, editing, and sending...
