Software Engineering | Price Vs. Quality


Posted by Binh Pham on 03 Oct 2019 at 05:49


This has been an eternal dilemma whenever it comes to choosing a product or service. When choosing a software service provider, what should you consider? While price is very important, you must ensure you will get quality, support, and sustainability from the company that you are going to outsource.

Price, undoubtedly, is one of the key factors affecting a purchase decision. When justifying or selecting a software development service, one of the first questions often asked is “What is your rate?” We know cost is important. But an hourly rate comparison is not always directly related to  the final cost of a new software application. However, it is worth keeping in mind that developer rates are closely related quality. And while high quality can come at a higher cost, ...

Working With An Offshore Software Development Team


Posted by Binh Pham on 03 Oct 2019 at 05:26


Review the benefits of working with an offshore software center and be ready to take the next step! Are you ready to invest in your business?

Decades ago, software outsourcing was seen as an attractive option for enterprises that wanted to lower operational costs overall when the purpose of the organization was not primarily focused in the IT industry. Nowadays, as the demand for IT resources continues to increase exponentially, offshore software development may be the only acceptable course of action.

There are several articles on the Internet about the advantages and problems when considering an Offshore Development Center (ODC), though most of them focus only on 3 main factors: the budget, experience and technology stack of the selected company. In this article, we will review the...

Why East Agile Recommends Golang For Micro-services!


Posted by Marwan Souk on 25 Jul 2019 at 11:14


Golang, also known as Go, is a computer programming language developed by Google. Inventors of Golang - Robert Griesemer, Rob Pike, and Ken Thompson - wanted to create a language that makes it easy to build simple, reliable and efficient software. Go is designed as a systems programming language for large, distributed systems and highly-scalable network servers to solve internal issues at Google.


Go is becoming increasingly popular in several aspects: (1) Cloud Computing (Docker, Kubernetes), (2) Database (cockroachdb, influxdb), (3) Distributed Computing/Blockchain (etcd, Ethereum), (4) Networking (traefik), (5) Operating Systems (Ethos), (6) Web/App Development (a wide variety of companies using Golang to build their web/app services - Companies Using Golang) and many more.


The Go Programming Language


Posted by Marwan Souk on 25 Jul 2019 at 10:59


Go is an open source programming language that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software. Go is expressive, concise, clean, and efficient. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel type system enables flexible and modular program construction. Go compiles quickly to machine code yet has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. It's a fast, statically typed, compiled language that feels like a dynamically typed, interpreted language.


In the past couple of years, there is a rise of new programming language: Go or GoLang. Nothing makes a developer crazy than a new programming language, right? So, we started working on Go 4 to 5...

Working closely with a team of designers and developers at East Agile, the Invisible Institute launched the Citizens Police Data Project and built an initial prototype web app to transform the hundreds of thousands of database records and PDF documents gathered through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) into a searchable data tool with interactive visualizations...
