The last 36 days have been a bit hectic in the technology world, specifically around companies who are built around websites or web hosting providers (SilverTech falls into the latter camp). Here’s what you need to know about the Heartbleed bug and how to protect your personal accounts and your website.

Thinking with both sides of your brain
It has been debated for quite some time whether or not knowing how to code can make a person a better interactive designer.

The new tools in Version 9.0 your company can’t afford to ignore
The Ektron CMS has come a long way since its early versions, and even since the early 8.x versions.

How to use social media to stand out to a prospective employer
A little over a year and a half ago, I had the pleasure, or sometimes burden, of being on the hunt for a change in career. It’s a tough place to be in and it may even seem like all hope is lost, but wait, there IS hope. Lots of companies are hiring, growing, and always looking to add new talent to their teams.
We created this checklist that will help you leverage the tools at your disposal to stand out to businesses and their hiring crews. This checklist will help you use the power of social media and the internet to help you get recognized, determine a good fit, and arm yourself with the right conversational ammo for that first interview.
It’s based on tips and tricks that we’ve learned as a digital agency, as well as what has impressed our HR and recruiting teams, as we’re always looking for talented people to join our own crew. Things like being vocal on LinkedIn, and checking out profiles of potential future coworkers to understand their backgrounds. It’s not a faux pas, like many people think; here at SilverTech, we consider it an interviewee doing good research.
