I was spending some time this afternoon in our Twitter account, just checking out how our raffling was doing and stumbled across some pretty freaking awesome support – it seems that we’re getting some love via “Favorited” tweets from characters in Games of Thrones.
Take a look:

The #GeekLove raffle ended this past Friday, and all of our prize winners have either received their winnings or are patiently awaiting their arrival.
We heard from the XboxOne winner today, Killrat, who came home to a lovely package waiting at the door. She was nice enough to share with us this great picture of her and her brand spanking new console!
Once again, congratulations on your big win, Killrat. We hope you thoroughly enjoy your XboxOne.
As I discovered this week while driving all over Dallas, Texas, those PS4′s are still REALLY hard to come by! Our PlayStation 4 winner, MSHill, is still awaiting the arrival of her console, and I will update this blog as soon as she confirms its arrival.
A GINORMOUS thank you to each of our winners and raffle participants for making our raffles a success.
Also, if you’ve not yet entered our Game of Thrones raffle, you can do so at this link: https://www.genuitec.com/raffle/
We’ll be giving away some Valyrian Steel this time! Now you can suit up with a Loras Tyrell Helmet or a Catspaw blade to to better fight all those dragons and threats against the crown.
We sure hope your day is off to a sweet start, but for two lucky winners today is about to get even sweeter!
I’m happy to report that we received over 30K entries in our #GeekLove raffle. Thanks once again for making our raffle a huge success!
Drum roll, please…
Additionally, our Top 3 Referrers will be awarded Amazon gift cards as a token of our appreciation for making this raffle popular on social networks.
We’ll be reaching out to each of you today to arrange shipping of your prizes.
And now I’d like to let the cat out of the bag, or really, the dragon out of the cave would be more appropriate, as to what our next raffle will be; which by the way, launches RIGHT NOW!
In a salute to the upcoming Game of Thrones Season 4 premiere on April 6th, we’ll be raffling off an official HBO Game of Thrones Catspaw Blade and Loras Tyrell Helm as seen on the left! Two GOT mega fans will suit up in Valyrian steel, one with the Catspaw and another with the helmet.
In addition to helping you arm yourselves with Valyrian Steel, we’ll also be awarding our top 3 referrers with licenses for the new Elder Scrolls Online game which also releases this April.
Much like our previous raffles, you can enter and share your personalized URL on social networks with friends, family, and your fellow GOT fans for a chance at gaining more entries in the raffle pool. Each person that casts an entry using your shared personalized URL will also score you an extra entry – so be smart, and share where ever you can!

Great news, mobile developers! The Mobile Tools in MyEclipse 2014 now let you take your mobile apps even further into enterprise development.
On top of the rapid prototyping capabilities already available in MyEclipse, now you can utilize our Mobile Tools to develop cross-platform hybrid apps from the design layer to middleware and the backend, with no external chain tool setup needed outside of MyEclipse 2014. It’s all right there in one enterprise tool.
We’ve made it easier for mobile developers to touch each of the layers in the device-to-cloud spectrum and now, you’ll be be able to incorporate on-device capabilities to connect with company data centers and cloud services using only one IDE stack.
With the Mobile Tools in MyEclipse 2014 you can simply capitalize on core mobile technologies, like Apache Cordova, HTML5 and JQuery, to develop the hybrid and web apps, as well as utilize end-to-end development for testing and optimization of tasks.
Additionally, MyEclipse 2014 Mobile Tools allows for the design of native apps for iOS 7 using a new iOS Build Configuration Editor that lets you customize applications, including app icons. The mobile tools will also connect you with Apache Cordova technology to package your apps in native form so you can submit them to both the Google Play and Apple App stores.

U.S News is now reporting that Software Developer has taken the #1 Best Technology Job ranking, but also the overall #1 Best Job ranking for 2014.
You can read the full report here, but I wanted to share some of the amazing factoids from the article with you and re-affirm your career choice – BTW, good on ya, you chose wisely my friends!
Awesome Facts For Software Developers
- The U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics says growth will continue! In fact, the BLS predicts that employment growth will grow a whopping 22% between 2012 – 2022, with an estimated 139,000 jobs that will be filled. Not too shabby for a 10 year period!
- Software Developers have the lowest unemployment rate.
- Software Developers are bringing in the dough! The reported average salary for 2013 of Software Developers is $90,000 with the lowest 10% of developers still bringing in $55,000. As a note, that 55K is currently above the U.S. Household Income average; in 2012 U.S. median household income was $51,371 per the Census Bureau.
These are some pretty spectacular facts for all of you Software Developers! You can officially take a bow for choosing THE most secure job position in America and do a happy dance to celebrate the fact that not only is your job considered to be one of the more flexible positions but one that will be necessary to all of our lives forevermore.
Now because this IS a company blog, I will go ahead and mention that you should give MyEclipse 2014 a try. But I don’t mention that just because I happen to work for Genuitec, but rather because MyEclipse 2014 has a long history of providing software developers with the hottest technologies used in the field today and does so in a lightweight and super cost efficient package. You can bump over to this blog here, to find out which of the top technologies for developers that MyEclipse 2014 supports.
- Default Socket Permissions: Applications that open listener ports, e.g. servers, will run into security issues now because Java limits which sockets you can bind to without modifying the security policy. A good tutorial on how to do this can be found at here.
- Clearing of Remembered Decisions: If you’ve accidentally selected incorrect or unnecessary security alerts, this release will now let you easily clear out our selections so you can always be sure you have only the settings you really want.
- JAXP Xalan DOM Implementation: Now when you have a Security Manager in your application, JAXP will always use the default DOM implementation. This should only affect those of you who have replaced the DOM implementation in your application.
For additional details on the release, you can read the full release notes here.
What you’ll see from Genuitec.
Applet Security: For this pack update, SDC will now include support for the applet security issues. SDC now ships with web installation flows turned off by default to ensure users avoid receiving notifications that applets may be insecure. Users can easily turn applet support on by selecting the re-enable the option on the Access Policy page of the Admin Console.
Grab your Java here.
In an effort to keep you and your team up-to-date with the latest tools, Genuitec will now be making the Java packs available within a week of their release. Java packs, as well as the most current SDC downloads, will always be available at this link – http://www.genuitec.com/sdc/download_all.php

Her name is Lara, and she’s the Educational Media Developer for our Marketing Team here at Genuitec, though we think of her as our “Oz” behind the curtain.
Lara has been with the Genuitec team for just shy of 3 years and is largely responsible for establishing new and updating tutorials, documents and videos to keep our customers up to date with the latest tips, tricks and helps for our products.
While our very Oz is a quiet sort and prefers to stay safely behind the curtain, she’s granted us with a peek behind that curtain which oddly enough turns out to be a closet!
Oz, I mean Lara, is so dedicated to giving our customer base the clearest sounding tutorials and videos that she resorted to completing all recordings from her closet. Here Lara utilizes her clothing as insulation for her very unique recording studio or closet as the case may be to ensure you’ll hang on every southern word spoken.
Please rest assured that we’ve requested that the good people of Oz help her out with a pop-up studio so she can be a bit more comfortable than she appears in this rare snapshot.
Haven’t heard the voice of Genuitec yet? Below are a couple of great videos put together by Lara highlighting some of the coolest features and technologies from Genuitec.
Service Release 3 for Secure Delivery Center (SDC) is now available for download and is bringing you more than 40 bug fixes, better support for 4.3.x RCP Applications, RAD On Demand support, and full support for delivering the exciting new features in MyEclipse 2014 securely behind your firewall. Additionally, SR3 now includes full support for delivering the exciting new features in MyEclipse 2014 securely behind your firewall.
Better Support for 4.3.x RCP Support.
Regardless of the Eclipse version RCP applications are created in, SR3 will now automatically detect and provision those RCPs. SR3 will also correctly map RCPs in the right versions of plug-ins based on interdependencies.
RAD On Demand Support.
SD3 is now able to deliver security, pre-installation of software components, workspace provisioning, and software catalogs to IBM RAD installations.
Demise of the Java Applet.
Due to a series of security issues, SDC now ships with web installation flows turned off by default, thus users will no longer receive notifications that applets may be insecure. Users wishing to use the applets can quickly turn these back on in the Admin Console.
