  • 13 AI Tools For Digital Work & Productivity

    Who among us has not chatted with Chat GPT or Bard Gemini in the last couple of days? While these are the most popular AI apps used in today’s digital work, thousands of other platforms streamline work and life across many more use cases. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is developing at a breakneck pace. A new analysis by the International Monetary Fund shows that AI will affect almost 40 percent of jobs around the world, replacing some and complimenting others. In more advanced economies, roughly 60% of job roles could feel the impact of AI. On one side, about half of these roles could see benefits from AI integration, improving efficiency and productivity. However, for the other half, AI might start handling essential tasks that humans currently do, potentially reducing the need for labor.

Luckily, technology is the great equalizer in our industry so we fell in sync quickly with their team, and, together, we decided to take on the challenging task of reinventing the front end of This is the first chapter of our collaboration, within which we’ll be explaining the “why” behind this project, and discussing the architectural decisions we took to achieve this project.

    The biggest difference between the two is that React is a library and not a framework per se. Imagine it like an actual library; a huge place with wonderful books, aka “coding pieces” in software development, that you can use to add new functions to a website or app. Angular is a framework; picture it as an actual frame. To fit a certain picture into that frame you have to cut it, meaning you can’t go back. In software development, a framework comes with a specific standard for an app or website. It is limited, setting an unchangeable project architecture. Once cut, you can’t uncut it.

    It’s okay to feel a little reluctant when you first begin a collaboration with a remote software development team. Managing a team located hundreds of kilometers away can make you feel a little insecure, and that’s alright. But you need to build your product on time, on budget, and to top code quality standards, and hiring an internal development team doesn’t always make financial sense.
  • React.js statistics

    Why do we love it? Because it helps us create the most engaging web apps efficiently and fast with minimal coding. Since its release back in 2013, the goal of React.js was to provide outstanding rendering performance, considering its core strength is on individual components. Although it won the “battle” against Vue.js in 2019, things are changing fast in the software development realm; ASP.NET Core occupies the pole position with 70.7%, followed by React.js with 68,9%.
