The web is an incredible platform. It’s accessed from different devices, operating systems, networks and regions. And every single time it’s up-to-date, and your experience with that site can be as permanent as you’d like.

In the last few years the world has witnesed an astonishing growth in the number of mobile phone users. Obvious reasons: cheap hardware, easy access to the internet. In this scenario the optimization of user experience on the mobile device is essential.

PWA delivers just that. If the best of web and the best of native app had a clone child- it’s PWA. It got…

More than a quarter of all websites are running in Wordpress — and for good reason. WordPress is the easiest and one of the popular blogging and website builder in existence today. From bloggers to small businesses to Fortune 500 companies, use WordPress extensively.

At Geogo, we are using Wordpress since inception for managing our company’s website, product websites and blogs. But over the time we are facing certain performance issues in representational layer whenever the data is coming from multiple sources.

When I first started to re-design my company website I was very excited to use ReactJS to build the front-end application in the React way. But soon I realised, in the excitement of using the new JS library I completely forgot about the content part. Who will send me dynamic contents?

And seriously this time I was not in a mood to develop a backend app with Rails or NodeJS. Rather I wanted someone else to handle the role of a typical Content Management System (CMS).
