Get caught up with the trending tech topics of today with this week's edition of Reader's Corner. Today we're covering a variety of topics from essential Google Analytics alerts, to the announcement of "Vapid" (open source CMS and hosting platform), and finally some legal updates on web accessibility under ADA.
After a brief hiatus, we are excited to announce that our Reader's Corner is back in action! You can look forward to seeing a lot more engaging and thought-provoking content from our staff through the remainder of 2018. In this week's issue, we are keeping up with a very "visual" theme, featuring articles related to designing video game UIs, creating a hands-free platform for developing iOS games, and the historical progression of color theory over the years.

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to guest lecture before the Web Design students at Wake Technical Community College on the similarities between Usability, Accessibility, and SEO, a topic I first addressed here in 2009. Since my initial blog post, I assembled a talk, which I presented at BarCampRDU, and at Internet Summit 2010 in Raleigh last November.
Last year I started thinking about the similarities between Usability, Accessibility, and SEO, and posted the first of what I hoped to be a series of articles on the subject. Since then, I assembled a talk, which I presented at BarCampRDU in 2009 and 2010 and am preparing to give at Internet Summit 2010 in Raleigh this week. This post will provide some additional resources as well as a copy of my slides.
