Why a DSR Blog?

Why on earth would a contract software development company produce a blog? It’s a good question. People blog to share, to make money, or to feed their egos. Companies aren’t much different. Our company, DSR (Data Storage Research), isn’t much different either. That’s why we’re doing this—at least it’s a main reason why.

We’re blogging a several other reasons, too. Reasons like:

  • Keeping in touch with our customers, partners, and anyone else interested in the things we are working on and working towards.
  • Providing insight into our culture and experience. An open book is much better read.
  • Posting about the various projects we have going on, discussing the challenges we encounter along the way, and talking about the tools, techniques, and processes we use to overcome them.
  • Providing expert solutions and advice from our team’s knowledge and experience of our team. Common software development issues--both technical and process related—are interesting to explore in a blog format. (At least we think they are…)

This blog will let you get to know our team a little better and become a little more familiar with our culture. We’ve been around for about 12 years, and we use standard management and software development methodologies. Since DSR has extensive experience developing:

  • Web-based systems
  • Embedded systems applications
  • Enterprise databases
  • Device drivers
  • iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Brew, Symbian applications

we believe this blog will provide you with an insider’s look at how this development work happens. We hope we all learn something along the journey.

What’s Next?

This conversation place starts mostly as a monologue, but will evolve to include more integrated methods of direct communication. Please share your comments, questions, and suggestions.

Thank you, and we look forward to getting to know you. Like they say in Russian:

Do vstrechi, druz’ia! (Until next time, friends!)
