ZWCAD+ Takes the User Interface Lead with SmartMouse

SmartMouse is a new feature in ZWCAD+ providing command input through mouse movement. Due to the incomparability of SmartMouse technology in the CAD industry, it has been a hit among users and CAD experts alike by providing a whole new UI experience. In order for users to learn more about SmartMouse, the product manager of ZWCAD+ shared design ideas of the feature during a webinar talk, which was well received by the audience.

After the ZWCAD+ official release, the feature first attracted CAD experts to test it. Ralph Grabowski, a renowned author of over 140 books and several hundred magazine articles about computer-aided design, commented on the feature in his recent product review of ZWCAD+: “With the mouse gesturing they call SmartMouse, ZWCAD+ does take the user interface lead over some big-name CAD products. By holding down the right mouse button and dragging the cursor in the shape of a letter of the alphabet (or in a specific directions), I activate a command. Best of all, the SmartMouseConfig command fully customizes any of the movements.”

As SmartMouse gained in popularity, more and more CAD users became interested in the design idea of this new feature. In order to show all the possibilities and explain how SmartMouse works, Daniel Huang the Product Manager of ZWCAD+ hosted a webinar.

“As time progresses, software development has become more and more humanized in user experience. The traditional way for designers to use CAD commands is to type on the keyboard or move the mouse to search for that command button. We think that there can be a different and even better UI experience for users.”

Daniel continued: “With this in mind, we started to research and became inspired by some of the current web browsers. They have similar mouse gesture functions, with which you can trigger certain browsing actions by moving your mouse. We decided to give it a shot in our CAD software. We had some of our users test this feature and they were amazed. Therefore, we spared no effort to perfect it by collecting more suggestions from users and the final design has proven a success. Now a growing number of users worldwide have found this feature a nice time saver after adapting.”

Traditional on-premises data centers have long been the domain of modern data platforms like Apache Hadoop, meaning companies who build their business on public cloud were challenged to run Big Data processing and analytics at scale. But recent advancements in Hadoop performance, security, and most importantly cloud-native integrations, are giving organizations the ability to truly gain value from all their data. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, David Tishgart, Director of Product Marketing at Cloudera, covered the ins and outs of Hadoop, and how it can help cloud-based businesses.
The best way to leverage your Cloud Expo presence as a sponsor and exhibitor is to plan your news announcements around our events. The press covering Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo will have access to these releases and will amplify your news announcements. More than two dozen Cloud companies either set deals at our shows or have announced their mergers and acquisitions at Cloud Expo. Product announcements during our show provide your company with the most reach through our targeted audiences.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Transformation Abstract Encryption and privacy in the cloud is a daunting yet essential task for both security practitioners and application developers, especially as applications continue moving to the cloud at an exponential rate. What are some best practices and processes for enterprises to follow that balance both security and ease of use requirements? What technologies are available to empower enterprises with code, data and key protection from cloud providers, system administrators, insiders, government compulsion, and network hackers? Join Ambuj Kumar (CEO, Fortanix) to discuss best practices and technologies for enterprises to securely transition to a multi-cloud hybrid world.
