As well as the wonderful town of Hertford being 15 miles from our app development office in Hitchin, 15 is also one of the intervals (INTERVAL_FIFTEEN_MINUTES) in Android's AlarmManager class. This class provides access to the system alarm services and allows Android app developers to schedule applications to be run at some point in the future. When an alarm goes off, the Intent that had been registered for it is broadcast by the system, automatically starting the target application if it is not already running. Registered alarms are retained while the device is asleep (and can optionally wake the device up if they go off during that time), but will be cleared if it is turned off and rebooted. (Android.app.AlarmManager).


Useful web app developers term of the day: SSL

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer, which is a security protocol used to establish a secure encrypted connection between a web server and a web browser. It has been superseded by Transport Layer Security (TLS), but the term SSL is still used colloquially to refer to the use of either protocol.

SSL/TLS is used to ensure that data transmitted over the internet remains secure and private, and cannot be intercepted or tampered with by unauthorized third parties. When a user connects to a website secured with SSL/TLS, the web server and browser negotiate a secure connection using a digital certificate that verifies the identity of the server.

Once the connection is established, all data transmitted between the server and the browser is encrypted, so that it cannot be read or modified by anyone else. SSL/TLS is commonly used to secure sensitive data such as login credentials, credit card information, and other personal or financial data.


SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer. It is a security protocol that provides encrypted communication between a web server and a web browser. SSL is used to secure online transactions and protect sensitive information such as credit card numbers, login credentials, and personal information from being intercepted by third parties.

When SSL is enabled on a website, the browser and the server establish a secure connection using a cryptographic key. This key is used to encrypt all data exchanged between the browser and the server, making it impossible for anyone to intercept or read the data.

SSL has been replaced by Transport Layer Security (TLS), but the term SSL is still commonly used to refer to the security protocol. TLS is the successor to SSL and provides stronger security and better performance. TLS is used to secure online transactions and protect sensitive information such as credit card numbers, login credentials, and personal information from being intercepted by third parties.
