It was completely unexpected. Out-of-the-blue I was asked today by one of my co-workers to write a blog post. I thought hard about which new front-end development tools I have been using lately, but couldn’t think of anything that had had a significant impact on my professional life recently. Then I looked at today’s date and I realized that it is my 20-year anniversary here at Boyle Software. These twenty years certainly had a significant impact on my life…
From all of us at Boyle Software, may this be a warm and happy Thanksgiving for each and every one of you! This has been a noisy and, at times, troubling year in the world, but we hope that you will find peace and gratitude when gathered at the table, surrounded by your family and friends. Be thankful for your loved ones, for your health, and for a world with abundant marvels.
This past Wednesday evening, at our HQ in New York, Boyle Software’s VP of R&D Lev Gimelfarb gave an excellent TechTalk on his latest development effort: Stacy. It was a fantastic way to reinvigorate our TechTalk series after a long hiatus! We had a good turn out of Boyle Software employees as well as several colleagues, clients, and friends.

Stacy allows creating websites that are served from Amazon S3 cloud service as if they are static websites, while having the site content managed in Contentful CMS. The authors edit the content in the CMS and their edits are automatically published to the statically hosted website without any participation from the site developers. Once the system is setup, for regular content changes there is no need to run any site generators or manually upload any content to the S3. [Source]

The sun did make an appearance, beaming its red and orange glow beneath the cloud cover as it sank behind the New Jersey horizon!
Anchors aweigh! Boyle Software’s annual summer party for staff, clients, and friends is this coming Thursday – and what a night it should be! We’ll be taking a sunset sail on the Hudson aboard the handsome 105′ Schooner America 2.0, departing from its dock at Chelsea Piers on Manhattan’s west side.
In addition to hot dogs and hamburgers, this year we’re celebrating America’s Independence Day by donating to the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, Federal Tax ID# 26-0086305.
From now through mid-April, the New York Historical Society is hosting an exhibit entitled “Silicon City: Computer History Made in New York,” tracing the City’s relationship with computing technology back as far as the 19th century.
