First Docker abstracted compute, then it abstracted networking, and soon it will abstract storage. As someone who did my […]

The technology behind virtual reality and Google Street View is no longer something only big tech companies can afford. With handheld 360 cameras, anyone can take a spherical image and develop something interactive with the results. Join our Safers for coffee as they talk about Ricoh’s Theta camera and take you through an interactive VR demo of […]
Co-op students have been an integral part of Safe Software for over 20 years, contributing to core FME technology and often returning as full-time software developers. Today we welcome Marinah Zhao to the blog, a fourth year engineering student at UBC. Marinah was a valuable member of our FME Server team in Fall 2016. I had heard from some classmates that […]
The dawn of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) is glowing brighter than ever.

Henri and Jurgen will share what they’ve been able to accomplish since August.
