We have been thrilled to play host to the Open Source NYC Meetup a couple of times in recent months at our HQ at 42 West 24th. Last week’s Meetup featured a compelling discussion of intellectual property law as it relates to open source development. Topics ranged from the problem of proprietary platforms constructed upon open source foundations to more nuts-and-bolts issues like licensing. Back in July the discussion was all about GitHub in the wake of its acquisition by Microsoft, with people from GitHub as well as GitLab there to answer questions and share their insights.
AppNexus, one of our very own clients is giving back to the neighborhood by sponsoring free Wi-Fi access in the Public Plazas of the Flatiron District hailing from 23rd Street and Sixth Avenue to Park Avenue South, with coverage reaching as far as 21st Street and Broadway. Visitors, workers and neighborhood residents alike can jump for joy! This is one zone where folks can quickly plugin to get directions, find the nearest lunch spot, shopping, or just a place to chill and take in the sites (and the sights!).
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. Pizza was consumed, beverages were imbibed, and we all learned some new things…
On Wednesday, October 26th, Boyle Software’s VP of Research & Development Lev Gimelfarb will discuss and demo his latest project, called simply Stacy:
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]
We had a great time last week at our annual summer party for Boyle Software staff, family, and friends. Though some ominous clouds rolled in and a few drops of rain were felt, our sunset sailing excursion on the Hudson was a success all around. The sun did make an appearance, beaming its red and orange glow beneath the cloud cover as it sank behind the New Jersey horizon!
