By: Craig Lamb

Thanks to the attention, research and investments made by major industrial leaders, the advancements of IoT applications in everything from manufacturing to farming is revolutionizing the industrial world.

The IIoT is driving unprecedented disruption in an industry that has struggled in recent years due to talent shortages, and this offers hope for the industry’s future.

Envative's Mobile Framework Journey: from MVC to MVVM

By: Scott Terry

This is the first in a series of articles about building our own mobile framework, the decisions we’ve made along the way and our rationale behind them.
Most common mobile development follows the MVC (Model-View-Controller) pattern as that is the path the native SDK’s lead you down and what is most familiar to the majority of developers.
By contrast, Envative has been making the push to MVVM (Model-View-View-Model) after seeing some great benefits from early forays into using the pattern. We have chosen this pattern for both our iOS and Android platforms.

Is Your Website Working Against You?

By: Gaetano Vigneri

I recently came across an old article about the importance of having a website for small businesses – or really any sized business. The article was written in October, 2004, more than 15 years ago.  I read it with low expectations of finding anything relevant. I mean, website best practices have changed dramatically since 2004!

So I was anticipating a good chuckle about the antiquated information I thought I would be reading.
