  1. Uizard raises funds for its AI that turns design mockups into source code

    When you’re trying to build apps, there is a very tedious point where you have to stare at a wireframe and then laboriously turn it into code. Actually, the process itself is highly repetitive and ought to be much easier. The traditional software development from front-end design to front-end html/css development to working code is […]
  2. OpenStack spins out its Zuul open source CI/CD platform

    There are few open-source projects as complex as OpenStack, which essentially provides large companies with all the tools to run the equivalent of the core AWS services in their own data centers.

  3. Rackspace acquires Salesforce specialist RelationEdge

    Rackspace today announced that it has acquired RelationEdge, a Salesforce implementation partner and digital agency. The companies did not disclose the financial details of the acquisition.

  4. Contentstack doubles down on its headless CMS

    It’s been about two years since Built.io launched Contentstack, a headless content management system for the enterprise.

    Sometimes I think of spreadsheets as the dirty secret of the IT world today.

  13. Veridium Labs teams with IBM and Stellar on carbon credit blockchain

    Veridium Labs has been trying to solve a hard problem about how to trade carbon offset credits in an open market. The trouble is that more complex credits don’t have a simple value like a stock, and there hasn’t been a formula to determine their individual value. That has made accounting for them and selling […]
  14. AWS introduces 1-click Lambda functions app for IoT

    When Amazon introduced AWS Lambda in 2015, the notion of serverless computing was relatively unknown. It enables developers to deliver software without having to manage a server to do it. Instead, Amazon manages it all and the underlying infrastructure only comes into play when an event triggers a requirement. Today, the company released an app […]
  15. Xage introduces fingerprinting to protect industrial IoT devices

    As old-school industries like oil and gas increasingly network entities like oil platforms, they become more vulnerable to hacking attacks that were impossible when they were stand-alone.

  19. For ScopeAR, the market is finally catching up with the technology

    ScopeAR, a graduate of the Y Combinator Summer 2015 class, came to the augmented reality game very early, launching in 2011 when there was very little hardware and most people didn’t understand the technology. But it has managed to hang around long enough for the market and the hardware to finally catch with the founders’ […]
