And everything you ever need to know about the Internet of Things
The practice of alchemy has captured the imagination of people for thousands of years. Even though most of its practitioners were interested in the transformation of lead into gold, the real transformation at the foundation of alchemy was a spiritual one.
The transformation IoT promises is one that makes technology seamless and transparent to the point of becoming almost invisible. This is, for me, the alchemy of our days.
How can you capture this somewhat elusive spirit of transformation, creation and combination when you’re talking about the Internet of Things? What is the transmutation that we can aspire to, what is the lead we’re starting with and what is the gold that we’re trying to achieve?
We need to start by understanding what the Internet of Things is. Because everyone knows what the internet is, let’s start by understanding what these Things are, then.
Every business has a vision. But, executing on that vision can be challenging, especially when digital transformation is involved. That’s where Green Lemon Company comes in. We provide guidance and breakthrough technology that help our clients resolve the roadblocks and bottlenecks that hinder their progress.

Together, we help maxed out IT departments increase their velocity while meeting the ever-growing demand they face for enterprise mobile applications. So, here are five ways we do this. (more…)
This is the first installment of our Leading with Low-Code Blog Series.
The notion that a suitably sophisticated platform might ease the custom coding work of software developers has been around for many years.
Fourth-generation languages (4GLs) like PowerBuilder and Delphi touted such ease of development, opening up enterprise software creation to less seasoned application creators while simplifying and accelerating the work of their more experienced colleagues. (more…)

During that event, we had a couple of AMA (Ask Me Anything) sessions, where developers asked many questions about Silk UI, our front-end framework for creating beautiful designs with the least possible effort, and how they could enable designers to use it to its full potential. (more…)
Based in Hong Kong, Pacific Cross provides health insurance and health care services across Asia. The company has been growing for more than 25 years, and today it offers worldwide coverage for medical, life, dental, personal accident, and travel insurance, among other areas.
But serving Asian customers isn’t always easy. That’s because they tend to be very tech savvy and to have exceedingly high expectations. So when Pacific Cross was in danger of losing its biggest client to a competitor with a mobile solution that Pacific Cross didn’t offer – it had to act fast. In fact, unless the company could build its own mobile application in just 30 days, the client planned to take its business elsewhere. (more…)

Last year I took part in a workshop about emotional intelligence with a group of software engineers. Engineers believe in systematic thinking, algorithms and analytics. They don’t believe in emotions. When the workshop’s instructor asked if psychology was a science, they giggled. That’s a very common reaction.
