Why Cybersecurity Has Never Been More Important for your App? A quick overview of developing secure web apps with Ruby on Rails

No matter if you are an IT company or any other industry, as a business, it is YOUR DUTY to take care of your customers’ data and all the people providing you with information (employees, partners, etc.).

In the past years, everything in terms of data was overlooked and underestimated, until a few big data breaches changed the way we look at it (Cambridge analytics is just a simple example to think of.

But with no further ado, a security breach can lead your business to customer loss, damage to the companies you work with, reputation damage, PR crisis, brand…

The moon keeps changing quarters, and so do we!
2020 has been a test for everyone, and at Wolfpack Digital we’ve been very thankful to have a healthy and constant growth pace even during a pandemic!
Here’s a recap of our third quarter of 2020.

announcements and milestones

This summer we earned 3 awards, 1 certification, 28 active projects, and an amazing 40 under 40 feature of Gina Lupu, the founder & CEO of Wolfpack Digital

As we hit the halfway through this year, it’s a perfect moment to reflect on all the great memories that marked the past quarter. The recipe that helped us make this pandemic more bearable consisted of: constant and clear communication, empathy, team spirit, and many memorable moments spent together.

Overall, it’s been an interesting journey of discovery and adaptation. Here’s the brief recap of quarter two!

announcements and milestones

We’ve been enjoying our new ‘home’ and we completely love the vibe of our new spacious and colourful workspace.

The Wolfpack Digital team loves staying up to date with the latest technology, and we are not only the ‘early adopters’ but also the ‘early-software-builders’. The Apple annual event Worldwide Developer Conference got our eyes glued to the screens waiting for the most significant announcements and inventions to improve our iOS and watchOS app development skills.

Before moving to the big announcement, let’s acknowledge the amazing job Apple did at live streaming the Worldwide Developer Conference due to COVID-19. Right from the Apple Park, Tim Cook (CEO) announced the biggest innovations that will change the way people use technology and the new software yet to be built.

Even though there were no hardware introductions, just like the previous years, Apple made sure to surprise with operating system updates, improvements, and new exciting product capabilities. The spotlight at this party was stolen by iOS 14, and its little buddy watchOS 7.

Over the past months, businesses, hospitals, and governments have been working rapidly to get their work and teams up and running online. Digital communication and telemedicine were enforced, and we think it might be here to stay.

Once everyone is equipped with the right tools, it is easy to provide a high standard when speaking with physicians from afar, especially during high-stress situations where the lives of loved ones could be at stake.

Digital innovation was part of the long-term plans of most physicians and healthcare institutions, but the pandemic speeds up the process. And we are here to support a healthy digitalization process!

The ultimate goal of medic-patient communication is to improve the patient’s health and well-being. Effective communication is a crucial central element, the heart, and the art of medicine. …

Apparently, we can’t fight the laws of nature since time has chased the pendulum till it hit midnight between another two decades. It’s a good reason to look back and to do the aftermath of the past month and accidentally spill out some small spoilers about what comes next with the new year, decade, and new us. One thing will remain — we are still gonna be your dedicated wolves ready to jump by your side and build those mobile and web apps that the world desires.

The past month has been a time of inspiration and the will to share our experience and expertise with our readers had no limits. So, here’s our month in review in terms of writing!

How to Update Your Mobile Apps to iOS 13

Awoo, Awoo, Awoo, Awoo! 🌕🐺
Wolves are not the kind of animals to fear the cold, to crawl in their den, and peacefully wait for sunnier days to come. This month we were on the move at various events we host and support here in Transylvania and overseas. Yet what really helps us stand the cold is our excitement for app development challenges and our colorful team atmosphere.

Going Wild at Web Summit 2019

We’ve migrated to another jungle for a couple of days but for good reasons: to bring the best of technology back home and to make the huge potential to be found in Cluj known to the global tech community. Yes, our lovely wolves made their way to the epicentre of innovation hosted in colourful Lisbon, Web Summit 2019!

76.000 attendees, 1206 top speakers, 2150 startups made this experience full of futuristic insights and technology-related ideas and tools we can’t wait to add to our mobile and web apps. …

People who think that the Earth is flat should take a look at how the tech world is spinning currently in Lisbon. It’s the second day of the Web Summit and the number of ultra-smart speakers and all the tech trends is blowing our human minds.

For the lucky ones who are attending the conference and for those who are watching it on their screens from different corners around the world, we have prepared 11 highlights that prove that Web Summit is the ground zero for the tech ignition.

Here’s the list completed with short comments, few jokes here and there and some pictures with the Wolfpack Digital team hunting down some genius minds.

#1. Holly molly, bless our soul — Web Summit is huge!

Every morning during the Opening Remarks, the Founder and the CEO of the Web Summit, Paddy Cosgrave, keeps reminding us that this conference, like any other, at its core, is all about…

You guys, our jaws dropped to a subterranean dimension when we realized that this month marks one year of regularly publishing Wrap-Up articles. Can you imagine that? A whole year of monthly updates and news shared with you have passed way too fast. Whoever is cutting those onions, don’t make us too emotional. Instead, let’s close this circle with another well-packed, informative scrapbook story.

🗿Going back in time

It all started with an idea of how to stay closer to you. Now we can’t keep hold of our keyboards. Take a minute to see the first-ever Wrap-Up article we wrote a year ago. It’s a good measurement unit of how much we have grown together.

In Romania, August is that time of the year when the sun tests people’s patience to stay in the concrete jungle. Still, no heat could stop us from building ideas of entrepreneurs into powerful apps and from writing articles, planning events and chilling in the meantime.

Architecting Mobile Apps Meetup

The temperature was high and so was the temptation to go on vacation. Nevertheless, it was a pleasant surprise to see so many local developers attending our Architecting Mobile Apps Meetup. On the evening of July 31st [that’s almost August and, to be frank, the after-party continued well after dark], two of our development specialists, Dan and Victor, gave away their know-how on evaluating, scaling and architecting mobile apps.
