Friday, February 1st, 2013

We are happy to announce that version 5 of Canela’s Acuity Testing System, 20/20 Vision is now available.

We have been working hard on version 5 of the acuity system over the last two years.  There has been a lot of focus on enterprise level features for this initial release of version 5.  These new features are designed to better support institutions like government, universities, hospitals, and small to large chains.  In 2012, we saw a large uptake in enterprise sales.  This caused us to develop the features that are needed most to participate effectively in this emerging market.

Turning Code into a Successful Business (Part 1)

You’ve finally finished coding the killer app – but where do you go from here? For many developers, the transition from coder to entrepreneur can be full of unexpected challenges. This session addresses several of the most common pitfalls, and will give you the tools to deal with these obstacles as they arise. You will learn how to answer questions like: – Who makes up my primary market? – What can I learn from my competition? – Which platforms make the most sense for my product?

Turning Code into a Successful Business (Part 2)

So you’ve mastered the fundamentals of your market, and now you’re looking to expand. What’s the next step for your business? This session will expand on our first session, exploring more advanced options for increasing revenue. We will cover topics including: • Making the most of reseller partnerships • Sustainably growing your development team • Maximizing your client database.  And much more.

As part of the session, developers will get a peak of the powerful SpiceKit technology that Canela uses to run its operations. SpiceKit includes license management, customers relations management, auto-updating, analytics, and more for commercial application developers.
