    Top DevOps tools: what we love and use in MindK

    We have invested plenty of time researching and deciding which tools to include in our DevOps tool package. Our decisions are based on almost ten years of experience in the IT industry and we are ready to share the list of best devops tools with you.

    Here in MindK, DevOps is a part and parcel of every project developed.

    DevOps (‘development’ and ‘operations’) represents a culture that you can adopt for continuous improvement, aimed to unite the efforts of both developers and operations towards a common business goal.

    For every client project in MindK, we work with plenty of third-party applications, manage a lot of servers, and collaborate within internal and client teams, so we are forced to find a way that makes the whole software development process seamless and efficient.

    With that in mind, we begin to test and try different tools that could help us establish a DevOps culture.


    How to win customer loyalty with location-based apps

    Starbucks knows when I go to work. Their app can access my location and purchase history. So when I pass by the nearest coffee shop, it sends me an offer I can’t resist – a cup of Java Chip Frappuccino (600 calories) at 25% off. And while I’m sipping this unholy goodness, here’s how similar strategy can help your business.

    The company is using an approach known as geo-push to make highly targeted offers.

    It consists of two components:

    • A location-based app that tracks users via GPS or cell tower signal; and
    • Geo-fences, virtual boundaries around Starbucks coffee shops. Crossing them triggers a specific action in the app, such as sending a promotional notification.

    By combining GPS data and users’ purchase history, you can anticipate user desires and power-up your business.
