Working day and night…

Written by Jerome Pietri  on  Wednesday 15 June 2016

Last night, 5 of us were on deck after a difficult wake up call in the middle of the night. Regardless of the time, Greg / Pierre-Laurent / Dumè / Seb and I were up from 2 am until 4, in the aftermath of a BGP incident.

This feature, inherited from the early military days of the network, aimed at making it always functional. To achieve this, each router dispatches the list of networks within its reach and management to those it is in communication with : this is the BGP protocole (Border Gateway Protocol).

Selling an App for the First Time?

Written by GoodBarber Team  on  Thursday 31 March 2016

Monetization of apps is a hot topic that everyone wants to know about, and we’ve covered the basics on how to do that via advertising and charging users a fee in the stores. However, there is a whole other concept, possibly the most profitable one, that many people completely overlook. Have you ever considered entirely taking over the app-making process for someone who doesn’t have the time or desire, and charging for this service and final product?

While many web and marketing agencies are seeing the great value in adding apps to their portfolio of offerings, don’t let the idea of having to be an established agency scare you away, because it’s not at all a prerequisite. Freelancers, both amateur and experienced, are taking advantage of this large demand that needs to be satisfied, by targeting small businesses whose profits and marketing strategies can be greatly enhanced, just with the the addition of an app.

How to market your app to millennials?

blog_write_no_author  Thursday 10 March 2016

Millennials are a crucial target these days. Born between 1980-2000, they are a difficult target to reach, but once you have them hooked you’ve secured yourself an engaged crowd. Basically, often early adopters, they can make or break you.

In the mobile industry in particular, they are a target group: technology is an inherent part of their daily lives, day in and day out. But regardless, their attention is difficult to catch.

Reason n°1: they are overwhelmed by solicitation.

Reason n°2: they are demanding users, easily rushing from one thing to the next when they aren’t satisfied.
