On Point: Volume 11

on point

Summmmmmeeerrrrtiiiiiimmmeeeee … when the Memorial Day weekend means finding a week’s worth of awesomeness to talk about in only three days …

This (Short) Week @Bōwst

Jamie composed an outstanding post on women in code that included one of my favorite quotes (to get angry about) of all time:

“…I’ve no idea how I made it out of her office without her assuring me that if I fixed my hair and tried a little harder, I might be able to marry well.”

If you missed it, don’t worry: the story has a happy ending! If you, like us, are interested in getting more girls into code? Check out the aptly named Girls Who Code.

Or at least everyone should, because libraries are freaking magical. Why don’t you design and build your own?

Giant Box o’ Design Tools

I guess that would make it a … toolbox? (It’s been a rough week, guys. Cut me some slack here.)

Drupal 8, Now With Even More AMP

Didja know Drupal has an AMP module? Because guess what? They totes do.

New Thing You Can’t Live Without Because of the AWESOMENESS

I can’t be the only one who wants to play Pong IRL, can I?

And while we’re speaking of Atari? They’re busily making smart home projects. Who knew? (I mean, I did. And now you do, so … yay us!)
