GDPR & Hosting

We’ll keep this blog post short; we understand you’re probably bored of all of things GDPR by now – compliance, last minute checks, notifications and privacy policy compliance!

We do want to share our stance on GDPR compliance (we are compliant, and it was a fairly easy process for us as previous Data Protection Act members). You can full details at https://www.jolt.co.uk/gdpr-hosting/

We have also adjusted our Privacy Policy which you can find at https://www.jolt.co.uk/privacy-policy/, and we’ve made some minor changes to our Terms of Service located at https://www.jolt.co.uk/terms/

Any GDPR questions? Simply email gdpr@jolt.co.uk and we’ll be happy to help.

Developing your skills – A career in coding and development

We live in a digital age, and the rise of the computing industry has been like no other in history, becoming one of the world’s largest in only a few decades, and this unprecedented growth doesn’t seem to be halting any time soon.

This expansion has led to a huge demand for talented coders and developers to come along and program our favourite site we use in everyday life. Due to the nature of web development requiring you to learn entirely new programming languages, there is a high level of demand and relatively small supply for these code monkeys, making it a great opportunity for anyone with a passion for computer science.

Grays Business Almanac

Unfortunately, hindsight can be a bit of a blessing and a curse, and when we look back over the course of the last few decades we have seen the boom and bust of some huge tech companies. Well here at Jolt we thought it would be interesting to look back and see what would have happened had you invested just $1,000 into some of these companies upon their initial public offering.

For instance, if you had put away a bit of your savings into Amazon in the middle of 1997 you would now be on your way to becoming a millionaire with a whopping $643,000, meanwhile if you had done the same for Twitter back in 2013 it would now amount to only $406. The real kicker however is that if you had put your money down onto some Bitcoin back in 2001 you would now have a stash of cash worth approximately 35 Million dollars!

So just like Back to the Future, look through our very own business almanac and see what could have happened with a bit of forward thinking.
