In our recent webinar, Ryan Cox, one of our highly skilled API developers, walked through setting up and using the Smarty Go SDK. The webinar covered various essential topics, from obtaining the SDK to understanding the ins and outs of implementation.

Ryan explained that the Smarty Go SDK is easily accessible on GitHub. He then moved on to discuss the key differences between embedded keys and secret keys. Embedded keys are ideal for client-side applications because they provide limited access and don’t reveal sensitive information. On the other hand, secret keys offer more extensive access and are suitable for server-side applications.

One of the highlights of the webinar was Ryan's demonstration on spot-checking your code. He emphasized the importance of ensuring the accuracy and efficiency of your code before integrating it into your system.

Next, Ryan discussed the wealth of information that can be obtained from the Smarty SDK. The SDK provides valuable address data, and could be used for things such as address verification, address autocomplete, and geocoding services. This sort of data allows businesses to improve operations and enhance customer experiences.

In addition to the Go SDK, Ryan mentioned other available SDKs, such as Python, Java, Ruby, and more. He encouraged attendees to explore the various SDKs to find the one that best suits their needs.

One of the most popular and successful movie franchises—by far—is George Lucas' Star Wars. The impact Star Wars has had on the culture of the United States and the rest of the world is incredible. From 1977 on, Hollywood has been producing large, fantastical blockbusters packed with practical and computer-generated special effects. Movies have started being considered based wholly on the merchandise they could sell. Toy laser swords have been selling like hotcakes, and every child finds themselves secretly trying to turn off the light from their bed using the Force.

In our recent webinar, we hosted Jeffrey Duncan, our Technical Product Manager, who discussed the complexities and nuances of managing address data across various international formats. While seemingly straightforward, addresses are quite complex, especially when dealing with international data. Jeffrey highlighted the variability in address formats, which can range from the number of address lines to the order of address components, differing significantly from one country to another. For instance, while a US address typically follows a structured format, addresses in countries like Germany or India can have a completely different setup, impacting data entry and management.
