Comparison between Shopify and Magento

Can’t decide between Magento and Shopify? You’re not alone. These two brands are two of the most popular e-commerce platforms on the market today.

An E-Commerce store has a simple structure where you sell products or services online and even when seasoned and built towards a consumer-based design the store still sometimes won’t give you the results you were hoping for. When you go to such a site you will see posts that simply ask you to go ahead and test different CTA’s or different headlines. However, it is important to note that the best performing websites would be the ones where the A/B test is planned and executed well.

Now you must ask what is Type A and Type B testing and why…

There was a time when analog seemed entirely passé, and digital was king. Analog clocks gave way to digital, as did the methods of taking and storing pictures. A similar thing happened with vacuum tubes, but that now ancient technology persisted in specialized use cases long past its supposed death. The notion of analog is regaining some of its old luster. A discontinuous, or digital, production process remains highly disruptive, especially in this modern age of agile development, and shorter and shorter development cycles.

It’s remarkable to see the patterns of history unfolding before our very eyes, either through personal…

Great ideas do not always generate great products. In fact, ideas are a dime a dozen, as the saying goes. In other words, ideas are cheap; the expert execution of an idea is where the real value comes from.

An aspiring writer sees a newspaper article about a Russian submarine going down in the Atlantic and writes a novel based on that idea, only to have publishers reject the story as amateurish. Tom Clancy tries his hand at writing, turning a similar idea into a blockbusting bestseller which later becomes a hit movie. …

Throughout the short history of computing machines, programming has always been meant to streamline workflows and to automate repetitive actions in order to reduce errors and to increase productivity. This was true in the days of Babbage’s calculating machine and remains just as true in these days of web apps, mobile devices and the barest beginnings of artificial intelligence.
