The History Of Outsourcing

The History Of Outsourcing | Shakuro

The world without outsourcing is hard to imagine today. What once started as an economic movement, dictated by the rapidly evolving nature of capitalism, became a cultural phenomenon that united our 7,917.5 miles in diameter planet more than anything in the history of our kind. Almost contradictory to the laws of human perception of one another, despite the rudiments of our tribal mentality, and regardless of all the xenophobic displays of the worst of us, we somehow managed to sustain an ethical work scheme that runs our world today.

This morning I stumbled upon a funny story on Instagram, it said: “imagine Instagram was gone. BOOM! You’re not a model anymore”.

If you’ve ever looked through a software team line up, you’ve come across these job titles and perhaps wondered if a developer on your team is indeed good for your business development, or a software engineer is a key to success of your project as it contains a bunch of technical data that only an Engineer can handle.

The Subtle Art of Giving an Estimate | Shakuro

Every time a new potential client contacts us with an idea of a mobile app or a web app project in hand, it is already a little success. However, it is far from being a win as it will take much more than just reaching out and replying to get the product going. All the precious time spent on the genuine effort to break down the product idea and estimate the terms & cost could be wasted unless the estimate presentation is spot on.

What 2018 Holds For UX Design

With 2017 coming to an end, it’s fun to take a look at how things changed this year and see what we can expect from the UI/UX design industry in 2018. In a way, a year-long stretch is too much to keep up with in terms of the ever-changing trends, hype, and technological advances enabling us to even consider perfecting user experience. The pivotal changes might happen out of the blue in design and the beauty of it is you never know what’s next. So if there is UX design in 2018, how will it be any different? Let’s see.

If you are producing something and trying to make your living off of that, the first thing you do is let people know you are out there. At some point, that is not enough and that’s where a beautiful outdoor sign can help. But then, all signs are beautiful and you have to start over again. This was the case in the website industry.
