Laravel was initially released in 2011 and is already considered one of the most popular open source PHP, MVC, frameworks.  While many frameworks like CakePHP, CodeIgniter, Drupal, Joomla!, WordPress, Zend, and Symphony have been around longer, Laravel has gained notoriety quickly because of it’s modular packaging system with a dedicated dependency manager, open and active development community, huge application library, and the fact that it plays well with databases.

Laravel is licensed under the MIT open source license and keeps code protected by bundling it an only keeping those files that are necessarily public. This prevents server misconfiguration from letting code leaked to third parties.

LeadFerret Builds Directory of NoSQL Experts

NoSQL databases where born and evolved as an answer to challenges posed by big data. Companies like Facebook and Google discovered NoSQL when they realized traditional relational could not handle the huge volumes of data they were processing. The drawbacks of the NoSQL systems include a lack of schema and data consistency, difficulty in testing and maintaining, and absence of a structured query language. Despite this, the upside when processing big data is significant enough that companies like Cisco, SAP, Adobe, Verizon, Metlife, Nokia, and many many others have adopted the technology.

According to db-engines.com, 7 of the top 10 database technologies are still relational, but MogoDB, Cassandra and Redis have cracked the top 10 and are gaining ground.

The professionals found in this directory have all reported and/or demonstrated knowledge of one or more NoSQL technologies, such as MongoDB, Cassandra, MarkLogic, Datastax, Couchbase, or Redis. Anyone looking for a NOSQL expert, might find this directory useful. Also, anyone with a product, service, or solution that is especially useful for NoSQL professionals, should find this directory to be an excellent source of prospects.

LeadFerret Unveils Directory of Contacts at Companies Using AngularJS

Often times when something is simple it’s popular to make it more complicated, and then when something get’s complicated, it’s popular to make it simple again. AngularJS is a perfect example of this. Front end web development was once so simple that anyone could pick up basic HTML and start creating web pages in a weekend, but they were also extremely limited in what they could do. Fast forward a couple decades and there are now a wide array of very powerful front end frameworks to choose from, but of course many of them are very complex. AngularJS has helped with the movement back towards the simply by being one of the only major front end frameworks that utilize plain old Javascript objects (POJOs) for the model layer. This makes integration with existing data sources extremely easy, and limits the size of framework along with the bootstrapping time. Less complex frameworks also result in faster loading pages.

See the full directory at: https://leadferret.com/directory/companies-using-angularjs

The folks running the AngularJS Twitter account sum it up pretty well in their description: “Bringing ‘simple’ back to the development of complex webapps.” They also say: “Angular is what HTML would have been if it had been designed for building web applications.”

Anyone who has a complementary or competitive solution, service, or product should find this directory very useful.

It’s estimated that around half a million websites use AngularJS, including industry leading companies found in this directory, such as:

Intel
Sprint
Ford Motor Company
Walgreens
H&R Block
The Gap
Toyota
.. and many more

LeadFerret Posts Directory of Contacts at The Largest Private Companies

The difference between private and public companies is pretty straight forward in definition: anyone can buy stock in public companies though stock exchanges like the New York Stock Exchange or NASDAQ, while ownership in private companies is by invitation only, and they cannot legally sell shares to the general public. The natural course of the birth, growth, and evolution of a company typically means that with enough success they will eventually “go public.” However, in some instances that is not case, but private companies with $5 billion + in revenue tend to be very rare, which is why LeadFerret has chosen to highlight these companies with this specialty directory.

See the full directory at: https://leadferret.com/directory/largest-private-companies

In examining these companies, it makes sense to first consider why a company would choose to forgo the allure of public financing, recognition, and the prestige that comes with being listed on a major stock exchange. Of course, to be able to make the decision to remain private you have to have the cash to not need private funding, and a plan for long term sustainable leadership. In this way, private companies are rate because it’s not easy to remain private for multiple generations. Once a company has the means to remain private, they then also have to have the desire to stay private and the fortitude to turn down promises of big financial gain constantly pushed in front of them by wholesale lenders. Often time the desire to stay private is exactly as it sounds, the desire to be private, as in the desire to retain privacy. Public companies are held to stringent reporting and disclosure laws and under far more scrutiny than private companies. The overlying principal is that leaders of public companies and legally responsible to always make the decision that is in the best interest of their shareholders, while private companies can be guided by other principals like personal gain, spiritualism, causes they care about, etc.

This also means that private companies tend to make decisions more quickly, which, by itself, is reason to be inserted in these companies. Anyone that has a product, service, or solution that is particularly applicable or relevant to privately help companies should find this directory useful.
