Responsive Design Frameworks: Just Because You Can, Should You? | Smashing Mobile | Go Digital-Mobile | Scoop.it
The positive aspects of responsive design frameworks and why even a professional designer or experienced front-end Web developer would use them.
Jody_COC's insight:

"The world certainly has room for fully customized websites. I don’t mean to suggest dropping them in favor of mass customization. However, the next time a client wants a bit more in their design but is stretched for budget, perhaps it’s a good idea to consider a responsive design framework after all."

 

The positive aspects of responsive design websites are outlined here...as well as some of the tools you have to choose from.

App makers: Don't quit your day job, Toronto developer warns
The Globe and Mail
Convinced you've got a brilliant app idea that would surely make you rich if you could just learn to code?
Jody_COC's insight:

"There’s a couple really great things about making free apps, one is you absolutely get to reach out to the most people possible with zero barrier to entry, everyone is willing to give your game a try,” Coombe says.

“That means your download numbers and people who get to know about your game and your brand is several orders of magnitude larger than a paid app. The second thing is when you have a large user base and a lot of people playing your games then you get to introduce those same people to your next games and your next games, which is obviously a fantastic way to market your whole (roster) of games.”

Jody_COC's insight:

"Vice is part of a new wave of digital publishers offering brands "native advertising" – sponsored content that is shared via social networks. Some see this as the future of advertising.

 

For Will Hayward, BuzzFeed’s vice-president, advertising in Europe, it represents nothing short of an online revolution, with banner ads poised to eventually collapse."
