RSVP: from website

Today, software can be used by nearly anyone, anywhere. With SaaS and other digital distribution models, software is global nearly the moment it is deployed. Yet, many developers are unfamiliar with the best practices for international software development. How can you build global-ready software from day one? And, what are the best ways to take a legacy product global?
In this webinar, Andrey Akselrod, CTO of Smartling, and Brian Kelly, VP Engineering at TimeTrade, will provide real-life coding examples and best practices that will help you build software designed to pass the global readiness test.
Come and learn:
— Why hard-coding an hour-based time zone offset can get you into trouble
— How extreme locality and culturally rooted notions of time-based concepts like â??weekendâ? can be problematic
— How to prepare your website or web app for internationalization without externalizing your strings manually
— The benefits of pseudo-localization and pseudo-internationalization
— How to incorporate global software best practices into a test-driven development approach
