Hybrid app development: Fence sitting can make your life easy

It seems like everyone is an app developer these days. I was out for drinks with some university mates recently, and despite the fact that only one of us actually studied coding, all four of us were working on an app of some kind. I had a guy who studied business sitting on my left, a sound technician on my right and the only actual developer in our group sitting opposite me. In a very uncharacteristic drinking session, our talk didn’t venture near girls, sport or parties,…

Quality Management Systems and Training Compliance manual on offer

As a quality management, compliance and accreditation expert for over twelve years - supporting the compliance and business strategies of SMME's as well as large corporates - my decision to extend that support in the form of an already-established body of knowledge to business involved in compliance and training was a no-brainer.
