New advancements like self-driving technology used to be a motif throughout science-movies, yet are now becoming reality. The trucking industry has been adopting cloud platform technology due to the cost and operational benefits resulting from the shift. In a previous post, SkySilk detailed how cloud-computing services such as ‘Infrastructure as a Service’ (also known as IaaS), ‘Platform as a Service’ (PaaS), and ‘Software as a Service’ (SaaS) operate. Here we look into the impact of these services on trucking operations and transportation technology in general.
If you’re a web developer, chances are that names like Django, Ruby on Rails, Node.JS or CakePHP all ring a bell. Or perhaps you’re just starting out and looking to code your first website or web application. Either way its important for all developers to understand exactly what web frameworks are, and how they’re used to call upon the code written for a web application.

This month of July, Google pushed a new Chrome update with version 68 which had a large emphasis on web security. So, how will the Google Chrome HTTPS update affect the websites that you host? This particular change will mark websites without HTTPS as “not secure”, presenting them in a different manner than before. Some addresses may even require a user to go into the advanced settings in order to go forth and access the site. However, the benefits of using HTTPS include not only heightened security but visibility and better SEO rankings as well.
Looking for a Dropbox alternative? Cloud storage isn’t a hard service to come by in recent times. However, some of these platforms come with unseen limitations. For instance, your data is never truly “private” when storing it with a larger platform. Given that companies like Google are rumored to have the authority to access its user’s data, this can raise red flags for many. Albeit when it comes to privacy, it’s not a subject that should be overlooked. The purpose of self-hosted cloud storage is not to prove its superiority, but rather provide a competitive alternative to Dropbox and Google
A Discord bot can provide invaluable functions to your public chat server. Whether you want to play music while you game, send memes to your friends, or more importantly (perhaps) automate server administrative tasks, learning how to host a discord bot will prove more than useful. In theory, you could program it to do whatever you’d like if you’re an experienced programmer (and know discord.js well, of course). This guide will allow you to learn how to host a Discord bot using a Node.js server and the discord.js package.
How does one keep their network activity secure? One of the solutions to this pressing issue is OpenVPN, a virtual private network. Users can transfer and request data while connected to a public network, as though they are connected to the private network. Therefore, once a VPN is set up and you navigate to google.com and type in “what is my IP“, you will see that your IP would match that of your private server. While this technology is nothing new, learning how to install OpenVPN on Linux to setup and utilize it is an invaluable skill.
Metrics are revelatory, and they paint operational portraits from multiple angles. Computational technology makes digital transformation more apparent so regularly that changes seem to be of a daily kind. Big Data today uses cloud computing arrays to process more data quicker, allowing for more in-depth, applicable insights over time. Better insights help direct your operation in terms of digital optimization putsches. If you know where solutions are necessary, and when, it’s a lot easier to fix things. This is as true internally with your business as it is externally in terms of marketing. When it comes to marketing, applications are
For certain industries, the emergence of the internet drove nails into the coffin of traditional brick-and-mortar retail. Now AI is set to do much the same thing for many of the processes in the now-standard e-commerce models. Supported by ever-improving cloud resource distribution and IoT technology, here are some of the major ways in which AI is overhauling the basic structure of e-commerce models and forcing retailers big and small to move with the times or be left behind:
