Web design has seen a huge evolution in recent years, with accessibility and inclusion front of mind in the offline world impacting a more human side of software development. This means rethinking the approach to design, ensuring that the steps within processes address accessibility issues. Yet some tech companies are stuck in a previous era, before inbuilt product accessibility and their websites remain inaccessible to all users, particularly those with disabilities.
As we come to the end of National Coding Week, it is the perfect time to reflect on the opportunities that the coding world presents, whilst also encouraging us to look ahead to what adventures await.
New Hampshire-based Ian Pitt, CIO at Progress, tells us CIOs have to keep an eye on how the future of work is changing and make sure their organizations are adapting across the board.
Let’s say you have a great web application — it runs well in the browser, but for some reason, the customer wants an app that will be mobile native or desktop native.
One of the most challenging conversations for frontend and web developers can be the conversation with the designers. Kathryn Grayson Nanz contends it’s because of a language gap and she aims to change that.
Software engineering for edge environments should be carried out on, in and with edge computing tools, platforms and services. It seems almost irrational or crazy that we should have to say it out loud, but building the compute edge requires edge technologies.
Developers build code and so, logically, they need to deliver code above all else, right?
This misconception was one of the lies developers tell themselves tabled by Microsoft’s Billy Hollis during his keynote session at Progress360 in Boston this month.
The truth here (and what developers should really be doing) is building code when and if it actually adds some positive functionality to user experiences.
The software company Progress has announced the release of updates to several of its major tools, including Progress Telerik, Progress Kendo UI, and Progress Telerik Test Studio as part of its R3 2022 release.

With today’s R3 2022 release, Progress introduced Progress® ThemeBuilder™ Pro, enabling developers and designers to implement design systems seamlessly in web applications, delivering a greater level of design consistency without manual coding work.
Companies run on policies. A typical business might establish policies to help govern expenditure, employee behavior and conduct, investments and corporate gifts or bonuses, to name a few areas. But if these are the more visible policies that help run a business, the IT department has its own lower-level policy system too.
Panera Bread’s development team had a problem: Its homegrown solution to deploy applications to its more than 2,000 locations nationwide worked about 85% of the time, creating a significant problem and validation gap for the restaurant chain.
The Computer Weekly DeveloperNetwork team is on the road again and this time it’s Boston, USA for Progress Software’s Progress360 developer event, staged from September 11-14, 2022. This event combines DevReach and ChefConf.
Keynote day #2 was presented by Billy Hollis, regional director at Microsoft under the title: ‘Lies Developers Tell Themselves’.
Progress, the trusted provider of infrastructure software, has announced that Nanyang Technological University Singapore (NTU Singapore) used the Progress Sitefinity DX platform to transform its digital presence and web experience. The university centralised the management of its over 150 subsites under one domain umbrella, achieving a consistent brand presence and user experience while speeding up time to market and team productivity.
Testing plays a vital role in the software delivery cycle. UI testing in the continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline helps balance delivery speed and test coverage. So does UI testing really fit into CI/CD at all? And what tests should developers have in place without slowing down their pipelines?
Technology awards are the slightly flaky bonhomie padding that IT vendors roll out every year to sidle up a little closer to some of their key industry partners in a move to ingratiate themselves and, possibly, also impress their own roadmap direction and ideals onto some of the organizations that they work most closely with.
Personalization today is everything, with most consumers expecting to be recognized and known over the course of each interaction and experience they have with a brand. This has been further accelerated as a result of the pandemic, with most organizations having to shift all of their operations and services online.
The email came in quite quietly over the weekend, just in advance of the morning keynote the following day… and it read, “So, it’s like a normal developer event – all over again right?”
The truth is, things may never be quite the same in the (possibly) post-pandemic period that we now dive forwards to, but the Computer Weekly DeveloperNetwork team is on the road again and this time its Boston, USA for Progress Software’s Progress360 developer event, staged from September 11-14, 2022.
The pandemic brought about a paradigm shift in the way organizations operate. The lines between our professional and personal lives blurred. Work became global and the competition intense. When the pandemic led to thousands being unemployed, many were happy to just have a job. Before the pandemic, working from the office was the norm. Working from home was something one did under extreme circumstances.
Spending on cloud services is showing no sign of slowing down, but IT and security leaders are realizing that applications need to have high availability and strong performance in order to be effective.
Application experience management is therefore becoming a key element of enterprise strategy. We spoke to Jason Dover, VP product strategy at Progress, to find out why.
All of us are driven by the rising tide of automation to use technology to boost productivity while enhancing existing occupations and establishing new ones.
