Announcing Infoblazer Notes
5/1/2018- Infoblazer Notes is a web app for storing online encrypted notes. The focus is on end to end encryption, meaning all data is encrypted before it leaves the browser, meaning companies like Facebook, Google, and Microsoft cannot see your data. The app uses an outliner/tree-based structure, taking cues from Ecco Pro (if anybody remembers that software). I have not seen the combination of encryption and functionality available anywhere, so we decided to build it.

Infoblazer is all about “Building high performing Java applications”. High performing is not just about speed, but also (and perhaps mainly) about high performing design.
We are firm believers in the idea, to paraphrase many others, “Premature optimization is evil”. Therefore, it would be unwise to initiate performance oriented changes based only on the assumption that performance can and must be improved by such an implementation. Performance improvements should only be made after application profiling indicates such a need, and more importantly where, a performance issue exists. It can then be determined whether and what changes can improve the problem.
Design, on the other hand, is a primary. Always strive for elegant and logical object oriented architectures and design. Developing in this manner will make all future changes smoother and will make performance enhancement easier as well when those improvements are needed. Performance improvements are also sometimes “free”, when a library, CPU, or other tool is itself improved. Good design will make it more likely that these external improvements have a significant effect on your application.
Specific technologies and frameworks come and go but we believe good object-oriented design is permanent and is the main skill needed for a good Java developer.
