We are going to create a simple tourism VR application using React-360 with dynamic transitions, tooltips, and easy location managing. React 360 is a library for the creation of 3D and VR UI that can be easily used to create small tourism applications, such as application in this example.
Active Directory often used in corporate world to authenticate and authorize users on a big scale. SFTP is another protocol popular for data exchange, integration and ETL(Extract-Transform-Load) processes. Integrating both of them can be very benefitial for the organization.

This makes it a much simpler proposition for individuals to do their jobs in a timely manner without risking any injuries.
For hundreds of years, the world of industry has been striving to create the best efficiency and quality when it comes to end products. This idea started with people like Taylor and Shewhart back in the early 20th century, but improvements have been consistently implemented. Each of these methods is tested, posited, and reviewed before it is ever implemented. However, one of the most popular lean manufacturing methods from the last 35 years is Six Sigma. While it was originally formulated for the manufacturing industry, it is also used in finance, healthcare, and many other places.
Keeping your business inventory managed is crucial, which is something we probably don’t need to tell you. There are dozens of different ways to handle this task, but one of the most prized for those using lean manufacturing systems is the Kanban system.

In this article we are describing how to integrate existing authorization procedure with Zendesk using JWT(JSON Web Tokens).
AWS Transfers for SFTP is a fully managed service that allows to easily upload/download data to/from AWS S3 using the SFTP protocol. In the previous blog post, we created a managed SFTP endpoint using the public key authentication. Sometimes, a username/password authentication may be required, e.g. if the access should be provided to existing users, e.g. from the AWS Cognito User Pool. In this blog post we are giving step-by-step instructions on how to implement a custom authentication for AWS Transfers for SFTP.
While everyone is moving to the cloud and modern software solutions, we still have many legacy systems with traditional integration approaches like uploading/downloading data via FTP(File Transfer Protocol) or SFTP(Secure Shell File Transfer Protocol). AWS recently announced a managed service for SFTP transfers which can be used as a bridge between the cloud and legacy applications.
In this short tutorial, I’m explaining how to perform SQL queries on big datasets without using any servers at all. We are going to play with Reddit comments dataset and find out which subreddit is the most popular and how many grateful comments are there on Reddit.

We live in a connected world. Social, business, computer networks are around us. This knowledge brings us to the next natural step — analysis. Do A and B have mutual friends? Does outage of the device X affect the device Y also? Are Company 1 and Company 2 somehow connected?
Each day Internet of Things connects more and more devices. Often IoT means the presence of a dashboard/Web UI. But it can also be useful in desktop applications.
Often applications, especially if we are talking about e-Commerce or enterprise software, consist of complex repeatable scenarios(workflows) that must be executed in a response to some event.
Just imagine how great it could be if your mobile applications were aware of physical things nearby — personal stuff, vending machines, your car or bicycle... But how one can achieve that?
