We are really excited about this week's edition of Reader's Corner! Today's articles span a variety of interesting topics, such as the future of autonomous driving technology, a fascinating review of how Best Products (a retired showroom retail store company) challenged the "big box" store archetype in the 1970's with postmodern architecture, and a neat tutorial on using the CSS Flexible Box Layout.
Get through your afternoon slump this Thursday with a little bit of light reading and learning! In today's issue of Reader's Corner, we will be covering a new battery technology that doesn't catch fire, how to write unmaintainable code, and give you a quick look into the Aqua user interface screenshot library.
Obvious to anyone even tangentially involved in website development projects, whether new builds, rebuilds, or continuous improvement, there are always constraints. The features and functionality are always limited by knowledge, money and time for all but the most basic of projects. This is why developing an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) is highly recommended, or at least a solution worth considering.
The team has contributed some fantastic articles today! Our first share is an eye-opening account of how one VICE writer determined that companies are in fact "listening in" to our spoken conversations via the microphone on our mobile phones. Next up is some intriguing evidence that Google may be running an unintended monopoly in relation to the naming rationale behind various cities and districts around the world. Lastly, our Project Manager Michael has provided a concise summary and relevant article on prepping your website for GDPR compliance.
