    Don't get lost in translation, Storyboard's latest update makes it easy to internationalize your embedded UI.

    By Scott Snider on Oct 24, 2019 11:23:40 AM

    We're excited to announce our latest release of Storyboard. As a UX and customer-focused software company, we make a point to focus on regular, smaller updates too - primarily focused on improving the experience of existing features. But that doesn't mean we don't make room to sneak in some great new features too - especially ones that improve our customers' experience with Storyboard. We're excited. Watch our video and get excited too. Want more details? Read on below...

    The challenge of code reuse - and what you can do about it when building GUIs

    By Thomas Fletcher on Oct 18, 2019 10:05:15 AM

    Systematically developing high-quality reusable software components and frameworks has traditionally been a tall order. Many developers successfully reuse code snippets from one program to another, which saves a certain amount of development time; however, this practice does little compared to leveraging assets like architectures, components, and frameworks.

    There are a number of reasons (both technical and non-technical) why software reuse is difficult, particularly in companies with a large installed base of legacy software and developers. One of the reasons we see most frequently – and one of the easiest to correct – is the failure to separate business logic from the UI (user interface). Projects with interwoven business logic and UI code are time-consuming and tedious to convert over to new screen sizes, hardware platforms, or operating systems - a common requirement.

    There are four steps you need to take if you are building products with embedded GUIs (graphical user interface) and want to take advantage of code reuse in a systematic fashion. Although it’s Storyboard-specific, the central ideas are applicable elsewhere.
