The Importance of Mobile Development for Online Companies

Mobile developers

Did you know that there are 130 million smartphone users in the US, and this number is only expected to grow in the coming years? What does this mean for online businesses? Businesses must adapt to a smartphone world and engage in standard mobile development for their websites. Studies show, and common sense would indicate, that when users cannot access websites on their phone, they do not wait to get on a computer to view the site, they just go to a competitor.

Many businesses looking for quality web services outsource their mobile needs to mobile developers. As you can imagine, this is often a lot more convenient and likely to produce quality results than putting the work on in house developers who do not specialize in creating mobile applications and web design, or hiring someone for the single project. When choosing a web design company, you want quality assurance for the services they are providing you. Ask for references and read the agreements closely.

Responsive web design is important, and this means that any layout provided to you should be simple and easily navigable for the end user. Anything that requires too many steps or where options are too hidden will frustrate your clients. Web companies can also help you obtain information on your business intelligence in order to see how well your site is performing in different aspects.

Ruby on Rails is used by modern programmers since it is an open sourced web application framework. It uses the Ruby programming language. Ruby on Rails has a routing system that operates independent of the web server, and focuses on using well known software engineering patterns. Ruby on Rails puts emphasis on both convention over configuration and do not repeat yourself, which are both important for making application controllers as light as possible.

Three Things Day Traders Look for in Computers

Trading monitors

Why do day traders prefer to use multiple monitors, desktop computers, as well as day trading systems rather than generic computers from tech stores? Here is a list of reasons why.

First, the average computer has trouble following real time market data. The average computer user, of course, is not really affected by information that is a second or two late, since their overall online experience is not dependent on this. For that user, any computer is fine for their purposes.

For a trader, however, this little time buffer can actually affect selling and buying executions, thereby throwing off profit and loss results. All the data from forex, stock, and futures markets will be off on your display when one uses over the counter computers. It is important to use computers that can support day trading systems.

Second, most traders use multiple trading monitors because it allows them to visually keep track of different time tables, quotes, and charts all at the same time. Some professional traders keep up to eight or more screens for tracking purposes, through three to five is more average. Trading computer systems are best displayed on multiple screens.

Third, for comparing desktops to laptops, desktops are an obvious choice for day trading systems. Trading laptop computers are good for using when there is no other option available, such as when one is on a train or cannot leave the house that day, et cetera. Laptops, however, are not built to be fast, they are built to be small and portable. Again, not an inconvenience for the average user, but a huge issue for day traders.

Laptops have far less potential memory than desktops, and memory is needed in order to have headroom for day trading systems platform apps that need to do intense calculations. For serious and professional traders, 8GB of RAM is the minimum recommended amount of storage, though 16GB is more ideal. Check out this website for more:
