<p>I'm Eric Minyem, a web developer and digital manager. Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of assisting several companies in their digital transformation process by taking on tasks such as project management, redesigning and designing web platforms using CMS like Drupal, WordPress, Spip, Wix, Typo3, Joomla, as well as developing E-commerce solutions with Magento, Shopify, and WooCommerce. Digitalization is intensifying in the business sector. The emergence of Low/No Code/HYBRID technologies has facilitated the rise of Citizen Developers. These developers, increasingly present, are creating their own professional tools. Several advantages emerge from this innovative and pragmatic approach:&nbsp;</p><ul><li>Reduction of time to market&nbsp;</li><li>Cost optimization&nbsp;</li><li>Transformation of business processes directly by users as a digital project manager, with Qodly, I wanted to test my abilities to create a complete landing page at a low cost and in record time.</li></ul><p>Qodly offers several templates (Dataclasses, HR...) that will save you time in the design phase. You can also create your own custom design and integrate it or use one of the many built-in design templates.</p><p><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tx7Lhb7h5PI" target="_blank">Several tutorials</a> (<a href="https://qodly.com/blog" target="_blank">blog posts and videos</a>) will help you understand the <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lACBWXvkMY" target="_blank">Qodly interface</a>. We found the backend simple and well-designed.</p><p>We aim to discover Qodly's various functionalities by creating a landing page.</p><p>To do this, we've chosen and customized a predefined template called Business &amp; Travel, through which, under the theme of Travel &amp; Business, we've introduced logic and variables encoding links between locations (Paris, Singapore, London, Tokyo, New York)., versus Hotels, Cars, Flights, testimonials.</p><p>In the first part of the landing page, we created a slider with two images (Business &amp; Travel). You can also integrate a slider via custom components in the various zones available on the Qodly platform. We'll do that later.</p><img src="/sites/default/files/landingQodly.png" data-entity-uuid="2ccb7331-2604-484a-8175-e1d8c7ef896e" data-entity-type="file" alt="" width="902" height="1334"><p>&nbsp;</p><p>In the second part of the landing, hotels, cars, flights, and testimonials are displayed according to the city selected.</p><p>We also integrated an online booking system for hotels, cars, and flights for each destination. Users can select their stay dates and preferences and make their reservations directly from the landing page.</p><p>- Hotels</p><img src="/sites/default/files/hotels%2BTestimonials.png" data-entity-uuid="e311f249-c1df-4784-9362-b58dd769c2f4" data-entity-type="file" alt="" width="3360" height="1926"><p>- Cars</p><img src="/sites/default/files/Cars.png" data-entity-uuid="56d9ab1f-66e7-444e-a234-8c9e09e5c62c" data-entity-type="file" alt="" width="3268" height="1264"><p>- Flights</p><img src="/sites/default/files/Flights.png" data-entity-uuid="25c13460-a741-4055-a936-c031292f6824" data-entity-type="file" alt="" width="3238" height="1160"><p>- Testimonials</p><img src="/sites/default/files/Testimonials.png" data-entity-uuid="0492d4e4-1e0a-43b7-9de1-4b0d0e98db86" data-entity-type="file" alt="" width="3332" height="808"><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Finally, to make the user experience even more immersive, we added testimonials from satisfied customers who have already traveled with our services. These authentic reviews help reassure future travelers and strengthen confidence in our platform.</p><p>In conclusion, this landing page created with Qodly demonstrates the power and flexibility of this tool for developing quality digital projects quickly and cost-effectively.

How Qodly Makes GDPR Compliance Easier for Developers

How Qodly Makes GDPR Compliance Easier for Developers

02/19/2024

<p>In today's interconnected world, where data fuels innovation and drives technological advances, protecting personal information has become paramount. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a beacon guiding businesses and developers through the complex data privacy landscape. This blog post explores the importance of GDPR and how Qodly simplifies compliance for developers, enabling them to create robust and secure applications.</p><h2>Understanding GDPR&nbsp;</h2><p><a href="https://gdpr-info.eu/">The General Data Protection Regulation</a>, which came into force in May 2018, is a comprehensive data protection framework designed to empower individuals and regulate the processing of their personal data. The GDPR imposes strict guidelines on organizations, emphasizing transparency, consent, and safeguarding user information. Non-compliance can result in heavy fines, a damaged reputation, and legal consequences.</p><h2>Importance of GDPR&nbsp;</h2><ol><li><strong>User Trust and Transparency:</strong> GDPR ensures that users are aware of how their data is being collected, processed, and utilized. This transparency fosters trust between users and organizations, promoting a healthy digital ecosystem.</li><li><strong>Enhanced Data Security: </strong>The regulation mandates robust security measures to protect personal data from breaches and unauthorized access. This not only safeguards user information but also shields organizations from reputational damage.&nbsp;</li><li><strong>Global Impact:</strong> GDPR's influence extends beyond the European Union, affecting any organization handling the data of EU citizens' data. Its global impact has spurred a worldwide shift towards prioritizing data protection.&nbsp;</li><li><strong>Legal Compliance: </strong>Adhering to GDPR is not just a good practice; it's a legal requirement. Failure to comply can result in severe penalties, emphasizing the importance of integrating GDPR principles into every stage of software development.</li></ol><h2>How Qodly simplifies GDPR Compliance for Developers?&nbsp;</h2><p><a href="https://qodly.com/blog/introduction-qodly">Qodly</a> is a hybrid low-code platform for web applications that is GDPR compliant by design thanks to a complete system of permissions based on granular security and automatic backup and restoration, among other features:</p><p><strong>Granular Security:&nbsp;</strong></p><p>Qodly's key approach is to break down access controls and data protection measures into fine-grained components. Every entity, every class, every attribute, and every function is controlled by <a href="https://developer.qodly.com/docs/studio/roles/rolesPrivilegesOverview">privilege and role features</a>. This allows developers to define and implement specific controls at a detailed level, aligning with the precision required by GDPR for managing and protecting personal data.</p><img src="/sites/default/files/Security-editor.gif" data-entity-uuid="3d20bed2-c20b-448f-8595-176d660caa92" data-entity-type="file" alt="" width="1920" height="954"><p>&nbsp;</p><p><strong>Automatic Data Backup:&nbsp;</strong></p><p>Qodly addresses GDPR's requirement for robust data backup and disaster recovery systems by providing an automatic data backup mechanism. This feature enables incremental data restoration promptly during a physical or technical incident.&nbsp;</p><p><strong>Apps monitoring:&nbsp;</strong></p><p>Qodly goes beyond simple compliance by offering real-time metrics for monitoring your app server. Keep a vigilant eye on CPU and RAM consumption and data space utilization. Additionally, the ability to download logs provides a valuable tool for app performance analysis and troubleshooting. This way, you're aware of what's going on in case of a data breach.&nbsp;</p><img src="/sites/default/files/monitoring.gif" data-entity-uuid="1f7bac38-871b-47bc-9fb2-7f2437e88b92" data-entity-type="file" alt="" width="1920" height="954"><p><strong>AWS and Cognito Integration for Access Management:&nbsp;</strong></p><p>Qodly ensures GDPR compliance by integrating AWS and <a href="https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cognito/latest/developerguide/data-protection.html">Amazon Cognito</a>. Similar to its detailed Granular Security, this integration provides fine-grained control over user access. AWS offers a scalable infrastructure, ensuring optimal performance, while Cognito facilitates secure user authentication and access control.</p><h2>To conclude&nbsp;</h2><p>As the digital landscape evolves, ensuring GDPR compliance becomes a regulatory necessity and a fundamental ethical responsibility.&nbsp;</p><p>In a <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tx7Lhb7h5PI&amp;t=1348s">brief yet insightful video segment</a>, we delve into Qodly's unique approach to permissions, a crucial aspect of GDPR compliance. Watch the video to understand how Qodly contributes to a digital ecosystem that respects and protects privacy.&nbsp;</p><p>By seamlessly integrating Qodly into their development processes, developers can maintain user trust, strengthen data security, and contribute to a digital ecosystem that respects and protects privacy.</p>
