A Message From CEO on Moon Technolabs 10th Anniversary Celebration!

I would like to pause the time here for a while and have a look back at this marvelous journey attained by Moon Technolabs. To arrive at this juncture of successfully completing 10 years was not an easy task. Without support from all the direction, the milestone we are standing on today wouldn’t have been achieved. Hence, it doesn’t feel much lesser than to be standing at a podium with an award in the hands. My gratitude reaches out to our clients & customers worldwide for showing trust in us and each and every employee, member & staff who are truly the invisible force behind this success.

My sincere thanks to our clients for believing in our potential to successfully complete & deliver the project on time. The said projects helped us to venture into a diverse arena and grow our portfolio in mobile app development such as business apps, taxi app, enterprise app, educational app, health & fitness app, etc. Also, we have been actively involved in providing mobile app solutions to industry segment such as Banking & Finance Apps, Media & Entertainment, Shopping & E-Commerce, Travel & Tourism, Games & Sports Applications.  

Way back in 2009 when the foundation was laid, the software industry had just taken off with mobile & web application development. At the time, I was also going through a deeper learning curve of handling clients, management, projects, employees, etc. However, it is my firm belief that Moon Technolabs is blessed with a strong community of software engineers, mobile app developers, and designers. Each and every employee since the beginning has contributed a lot from being creative to rational in implementing their ideas & knowledge to cater to the customer’s solution.

We quickly started spreading our horizon from PHP to Laravel, Flutter, React Native, etc in the Web Development segment. Team enlarged as we moved along the time and at a total strength of 85+ now have helped us to drive innovation and excellence in the development of the mobile app, wearable app, hybrid app, native desktop, blockchain and many more.

The 10 years of journey has allowed me to see some of the remarkable shifts with respect to the company’s everyday ups & downs, which over a period of time lead to the growth, development, and success. As said previously, I think personally that the Moon Family developers & designers love the challenges. Shocked, well until a few years back even I was! Learning is a continuous process. And it should remain throughout one’s life. But, the way developers, QA, and UX/UI designers work hand-in-hand in the company while learning from their own mistakes, that’s what makes them perfect or at least excel in everything they do. This undying motivation that they bring into the company every day is what let them surpass the project hurdles. No matter how many times I say, I am truly thankful to all the employees, project managers and team leaders for their contribution and forming such an amazing team. 

We believe in balancing work, life and having fun-at-work. And I firmly believe that rewarding helps and motivates a lot. From time to time, we do indulge in awards & recognition ceremony, festivals & days celebration, games, quiz and the annual company trip which is the best time for all of us to unload work stress, relax and replenish ourselves.

A few momentoes of achievements during this decade long course of the journey are an 8th GESIA Award winner in 2015 – Diamond Award for Best Mobile Development Company, accreditation by Silicon India Magazine & Clutch CO and having our own state-of-the-art corporate office in Ahmedabad, India and our International Office in Chicago, IL, USA. 

I would like to round up by thanking one more time to all the employees who have been and currently are part of Moon Technolabs for all their contribution and efforts. Our open-door work culture builds confidence, self-esteem and invokes a sense of responsibility within employees to tackle work issues may it be from the client or management side. I take this platform and opportunity to invite young and vibrant techies to come and be a part of Moon Technolabs and add to its glory!

What’s Next?

The world is already hanging in the balance of tech revolution. We see constant updates and a new version with better functionalities day by day. In such a wake, we try to take the utmost benefit of it and deliver future-ready solutions with better products, services, technologies. Our focus will always remain to provide excellence and quality in everything we do by maintaining the highest level of professionalism in our work. Moon Technolabs is established on pillars like commitment, research & development, enhance the user experience and deliver marvelous and cutting-edge solutions through the medium of mobile app design and development services. Over the next decade, we would majorly be focussing upon IoT, AR/VR, Machine Learning, RPA, Cloud Computing, Blockchain, and many other such technologies.

Annual Trip

It was a great moment and time for each one of us. The entire team was conjoined in this so-called excitement, fun, and celebration that we didn’t even realize where the long weekend went! I believe some of us are still in water rides or the theme park of Imagica or probably still wandering around the lush grass fields and small hills surrounding the entire region. The evening rain showers added a cherry on top of the cake. Yes, our annual trip to the Western twin hill station to Lonavla & Khandala was super-fun! 

I know, you wish to dig deep into the trip details, so without waiting for further ado, let’s begin with the 1st day of the trip.

Our journey began with the overnight drive from our office in Ahmedabad to Imagica & Lonavla, which we reached by morning breakfast time. The hearts were filled with excitement and joy which didn’t promote the sleep but instead were awake mostly playing dumb charades, cards, etc. Another hour or so drive after breakfast, we reached our final destination. After a quick check-in process and refreshments in the “Novotel” – we spent the afternoon relaxing by swimming pool and few of us who couldn’t resist, have had their hands tried on table tennis, foosball table, snooker, Xbox Kinect games, etc. Our indoor enthusiasm was quickly scaled to sightseeing and doing some adventure out in nature. Through ‘Sahyadri ranges’ and the ‘Ghats’ of Tiger Hill and many others in the western part we spent the rest of the evening watching waterfalls & sunset. The mouthwatering delicacies and the variety of food at the dinner – made the night!

Imagica and Lonavla

The breakfast was unusual. It felt like we were caged in a bakery, aroma wise and a bread factory, size-wise. The morning breakfast was a bliss especially after all our energy soaked by the poolside in the morning swim session. Then, we had the most exciting morning of the year because it was time to cherish accomplishments as an individual, as a team and yes of course, as a company. Soon after a while, the conference room emptiness was filled with the sound of clapping as our CEO, Mr. Jayanti Katariya took the stage and began with the annual rewards & recognition speech. Every one of us, who received the award and who didn’t, got the chance to be a part of the stage and share the amazing moment of Moon Technolabs celebrating 10+ years at the annual awards ceremony. We got to know so many things from Project Managers, Team Leaders about the exposure they had during the inception and the facilities, infrastructure, and projects that we have today in Moon Technolabs -the contribution from everyone that let the company become the top mobile app development company. Lastly, the award celebration ended on a high note with a short speech from Mr. Jayanti K about the future of the software industry and how the company is going to be involved with projects based on emerging and trendiest technology.

Award Ceremony

A short refreshing break after the award ceremony and we quickly centered at a point to go to Imagica. All the rides of the theme park and water park were the two milestones that we needed to achieve by the end of the day. Starting from high in the sky to an enclosed in a pitch dark light, all the rides were thrill, fun, scary, exciting and a few hilarious ones! Water gunboat fights to dinosaurs to save the gold from thieves fight..each moment was amazing. Head was spinning for a few, some were wet from the water rides and almost all of us didn’t want that evening to end. We all returned as a bunch of kids who played mischief and pranks on each other throughout the whole day! A refreshing tea and drink provided us with the necessary stamina to reach our hotel and get ready to set back home.

In the evening on our way back home, for dinner, we loaded our tummy with cheese-filled pizza’s – the perfect way for our body to regain the energy. Besides everything, the annual trip has raised positivity amongst all of us and grew our bond stronger together as a team. This is going to help all of us attain a new height of success and growth by the next year!

iOS App Development Company

Ever since the inception of iOS app development, mobile phone applications have witnessed a downright swing. It is no surprise that today, most of the modern mobile devices like the iPad and iPhone are being rightfully and successfully controlled by iOS app development. Apple has been and will always be ready to drive mobile technology to its best. 

As for 2019, and beyond, Immersive Experience, 3D Alteration, Blockchain, Quantum Computing, Augmented Reality(AR), the Internet of Things(IoT) will keep on ruling the tech world. 

The latest release of iOS 12 has definitely managed to catch the eyes of some businesses who leverage the latest trends in iOS app development. iOS 12 assimilates the best of Apple features like cloud integration, facial recognition, enhanced security to make the iOS apps more compatible and secure. These integral features are already buzzing the technology industry since last year. 

So, what’s in it for 2019, you must be wondering. Let’s get this out in the open. With this blog post, we’d like to share some of the best and new-fangled iOS trends and how businesses can grasp these trends to provide an effective and efficient user experience. 

So, let’s dive in the ocean full of nitty-gritty iOS app development trends and understand the importance of each. 

Machine Learning

Machine learning is really popular these days. It is no wonder that iOS apps are no exception to this. With the innovation of Core ML 2 in 2018, Machine Learning is happening 30% faster, needs less memory, and needless to say, it is more customizable. Core ML 2 will stir a foundation for making Apple’s future-ready products. It is guesstimated that Core ML 2 will open scad of new opportunities in the development of responsive, user-friendly, interactive and high-performing iPad and iPhone applications.           

On top of it, Apple is even planning to add Apple Neural Engine(ANE), basically nothing but a chip that helps transcend the ML functionalities for future devices. Consequently, Machine Learning is no way near to be crossed off the list of iOS app development trends in 2019 as well. 

Swift 5   

It would come as no surprise that Swift is the desired programming language of iOS developers. Swift 5 is the latest version that just got released in April 2019. This new version has brought back swift to iOS development. It brought sustainability to the Application Binary Interface(ABI). 

Moreover, with the ABI sustainability of Swift5 has helped to reduce the application size significantly. Plus, the enthralling features of Swift 4 and Swift 3.2 like archiving, implementation, serialization and compiler support will continue to be a part of this new-fangled version as well. So, Swift 5 will definitely be one of the best iOS app trends to look out for in 2019. 

Augmented Reality    

iOS app development currently implicates integrating Virtual Reality(VR) and Augmented Reality(AR). On the line of this, a new file format – USDZ was invented in iOS app development. It practically boasts on allowing developers to make and share augmented reality 3D content using just a single file format. Isn’t that fantastic?

Think of it this way, many of the brands can use augmented reality to create a personalized buying experience for their customers. 

Furthermore, the newly developed ARKit 2 highly improves the rendering of elements in augmented reality. This will be something very helpful and unique. It will combine new elements which can be further used for AR experiments. 

Albeit, AR is one of the best and unique iOS app development trends of 2019.     

By considering the iOS app development trends of 2019, IT firms can create apps that offer something groundbreaking, quality is driven user experience. The frequent and further upgrades will make sure the development of iOS will continue to drive the industry. As a preferred iOS app development company, Moon Technolabs specializes in developing innovative iOS apps. 

Celebrating Our Decade Long Herald !!

The vision and mission of a company may vary from one another, however, the core values and the principles on which the success & growth of any organizations depend are more or less similar such as hard work, smart work, team collaboration, communication, support, and reliability. The best part about such time is that it sinks you in with pride and shows that during all these years, the perfect synchronization between designers, developers, talent acquisition team, business development, and marketing team lead to achieving & becoming part of a success tale.

Of course, every big thing begins with small steps and as is the case with Moon Technolabs also. In the early days, the resources were scarce but the passion for the software industry was skyrocketing. Though a meeting couldn’t be conducted in a conference room then, but it definitely did not stop to dare for one. Yes, to expand… to diverse. With such an uplifting spirit, Mr. Jayanti Katariya, CEO sets off on the mark to establish a top mobile app development company and lead with skills, patience, and perseverance to have attained a benchmark, celebrating the 10th anniversary of Moon Technolabs.

The celebration is in full swing with joys, emotions, love and fun-filled activities creating even a stronger bond between us all. Starting from the struggling times, upside down moments till the feeling of completing the project, everything that led us to reach this stage is because of not only mentors, team leaders, and employees but also our gratitude to our clients and partners across the globe for showing their tremendous trust and support. Over this span of time, Moon Technolabs has also been involved with many CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) activities all of which led to the purpose of giving back to society and helping the ones who are in need.

The company starting with only a handful of employees and resources has now fully grown to a staff of more than 85+ employees with an office in India and the United States.

Their immense skills as developers & designers have made us successfully complete 789+ projects, leaving us with 467+ satisfied clients worldwide.

Began with only a few in-house projects, Moon Tech quickly wide-spanned its vision because of the immense push in having digital presence whether for a personal or professional purpose. That led us to sown our feet firm in the ground with initially into the mobile app and web development and nowadays into projects that rotate around machine learning, artificial intelligence, wearable tech, and blockchain technology. 

The hard work started paying off a few years back with receiving GESIA Award in 2015 and Diamond Award for the best mobile app development company. Such accolades have always kept us on the edge of our toes to do something extra, add a special element, go beyond to help our clients in their project.

It’s been long that we dug deep into performance testing from its initial days and yet in every task it has a crucial role to play. A program has to be robust and withstand any hindrances that may prevent it to function properly. Software performance testing is a necessary step ensured by testers to make sure the overall performance and to determine the launch time. Though performance testing won’t help in locating defects or finding bugs in the program but on the contrary measures the performance with respect to industry standards.

One another way to make sure that your performance testing goes absolutely through the sky is by conducting and thoroughly checking individual functions of the software. This would fall under the class of functional testing aspect of the development wherein, the focus is on interface testing, sanity testing, and unit testing. Hence, performance testing is only followed after functional testing. A program which inhibits good performance can drive users away and may not lead to the desired popularity. Therefore, appropriate performance testing will help you to work on the improvement areas which will lead to a better product. An accomplished product or software is definitely welcomed by users. A top mobile app development company has to ensure to let the software pass-through performance testing in order to deliver a successful product to the client.

Salient Factors of Performance Testing:

It is essential to check the performance testing under various workload environments. Putting software through different conditions is only going to help identify issues. Let’s check five of those most commonly tested parameters.

1) Load Testing

Load testing is performed to check the load bearing capacity of the program/software or in other words, it is tested to check the performance when the workload is increased. Workload could be classified as a quantifiable transaction carried out within a specified time or measuring the load test via the successive number of users under normal working conditions. One underlying function of load testing is also to check response time.

2) Soak Testing

Another testing aspect is soak testing wherein the said software’s performance is checked over a long period of time to check its sustainability under normal workload conditions. The major benefit of carrying out soak testing is that it helps to identify system issues.

3) Scalability Testing

Under the scalability testing environment, a program is made to test under a steady increase in workloads and even to check reaction when the resources are changed such as memory or database, etc.

4) Stress Testing

When the software is forcefully allowed to perform outside its normal workload conditions such as with overloaded transactions or users than its original capacity, this testing base is referred to as stress testing. The conclusion helps developers to measure the stability as well as derive an optimum performing capacity or breaking point beyond which it would crash and won’t work. In such a scenario, developers can also work and learn to recover software from failure.

5) Spike Testing

It is a specific branch of stress testing, in which the software is recurringly infused with a large and sudden increase in the load.
