It’s finally hot enough to complain about how hot it is! Thankfully, due to the nature of this industry, the DesignHammer team has the luxury of staying thermally content as we continue to crack out code in our North Carolina office.
Another Reader's Corner this week means another opportunity for learning more about ever-evolving technology trends and news!

Pour some hot cocoa and enjoy this month's round of updates!
We are all hunkered down over here in the DesignHammer office, and pretty heads down trying to finish up work before the holiday break. That being said, we still have some awesome articles to share with you: comparing chat and voice interfaces, the making of the Stranger Things title sequence, Scrum for newbies, and how to use HTML heading elements properly.
