        Why would you choose one backend language over another? First, there is no “perfect” programming language, although some in the tech community may beg to differ. Second, a developer may choose his/her backend language for a number of reasons including; what server platform you use, your budget concerns, previous experience in programming, problem domain modeling, framework support, library support, security considerations, and database integration...just to name a few. Feeling a little lost? No worries, we were here to help. At the Friday’s @ the Corridor we continued our CODEtalk series with a panel of experts to discuss the pros and cons of Ruby, PHP, and Python. Panelists included Joe Bryan of sineLABS for Python, Andre Dublin of Kiz Studios for PHP, and Thomas Macklin of George Consulting for Ruby. Chad Cravens of Open Source Systems and Technical Manager of CODEcamp will moderate the discussion and audience participation was encouraged.

            In the past year, SEO has been elevated to a fairly household buzzword thanks in part to the major algorithm changes by Google. These changes are targeted at eliminating spammy websites, thin content articles, link farming, paid link buying and many other "black hat" SEO tactics. As such, traditional "SEO as a strategy" is rapidly becoming a thing of the past and being replaced with Inbound Marketing. Rivers Pearce and Zack Hannebrink of the Inbound Marketing at BoomTown discuss their belief that Inbound Marketing is the future of digital marketing and how tactical SEO should be folded into your larger marketing strategy.

              With so many options to choose from, what is the best framework for JavaScript? Backbone.js is great - minimal and not opinionated with the shortest learning curve - but a substantial amount of boiler-plate code is required. At first glance, Angular can be really impressive, but some argue it can deviate from classic JavaScript UI development. Or is it Ember - the new kid on the block that can seemingly do it all, and then some? So, which of these is the best JavaScript framework? At this Friday’s @ the Corridor we continued our CODEtalk series with a panel of experts to discuss the pros and cons of Ember.js vs Backbone.js vs. AngularJS. Panelists included Tom Wilson of Jack Russell Software, and Jason Finneyfrock and Mark Funk of BoomTown, who discussed and shared their insights on the best JavaScript framework. Chad Cravens of Open Source Systems and Technical Manager of CODEcamp, will moderated the discussion.

                Over the past year, the traditional, ever-popular web development LAMP stack is facing increasing pressures from a new contender, the MEAN stack. So how do you decide which stack to use? At the January Fridays @ the Corridor, we will discuss the pros and cons between the tried and true LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) versus the increasingly implemented MEAN stack (MongoDB, ExpressJS, AngularJS, and Node.js). We will be joined by Tom Wilson, Jack Russell Software, Ronak Raithatha and Shawn Foster of Blue Acorn, and Chad Cravens, Open Source Systems, to address the key differences between these two stacks and answer the ultimate question: Will one stack-up above the other?

                  Learn how to become a lean, product-releasing machine by harnessing the power of the Minimum Viable Product strategy. Based on the idea that planning is guessing, MVP prescribes releasing products that are just functional for the purpose of developing further iterations with the input of actual users. Taylor Brockman and Caitlin Perry of Brain Power Software and Charles Wyke-Smith of Bublish will discuss the ways they’ve created well-designed products without excessive costs or wasted time by sticking to the rules of MVP: release products early and often, avoid bells and whistles, launch in the market, and listen to the feedback.
