Testbirds Holiday Apps: Christmas

For many, Christmas is a time to celebrate with your family. Days are spent in front of a crackling fire while fresh snow wraps the world in a unique blanket just outside your window. There’s a sense of secretive serenity as you sit with hot chocolate in one hand, Christmas songs hanging softly in the air… and the white light of your smartphone assaulting your eyes as you frantically search for last minute gift ideas. Let’s face it, technology is everywhere today. In fact, I’m convinced Santa’s workshop now consists solely of entire dev teams with an extensive QA department.

How to Code – the Best Websites

Coding is misunderstood. Often it has conjured up images of reclusive individuals hiding behind computer screens with masses of jumbled numbers and letters building some kind of supercomputer, but not anymore! Through the power of the internet, coding is gaining a reputation for being an accessible way to build skills and enable us to change our career trajectories. Even if we don’t become the next Elon Musk, with how interconnected our lives have become with technology, it’s important to know how to sharpen our skills and evolve along with the demands in the workplace or understand how your business’ online presence interacts with customers, as often the smallest bug can be the deciding factor behind something being a success or failure; the devil is in the detail.
