Well, normally we like to share this list just around the holidays. 2020 being what it was, I suppose it’s not surprising that this list should show up as we get closer to the end of January 2021 than the end of last December. Anyway, here’s a list of some of the stuff we were reading at the end of last year and might still be reading now.
"Shopping Friends" is a service that analyzes your Amazon buying patterns and matches you with like-minded people.
Maybe it’s a Facebook app. When you join, you give it permission to access your Amazon shopping records, and maybe there are some filters for what kind of people you want to be matched with (e.g. same country versus anywhere in the world). There would need to be a preferences control panel that you can get to somehow to change these filters afterward.
What’s in a name? Well, in the case of Art+Logic, our name conveys the idea that software development is a combination of both art and logic. We find this to be the case in all aspects of the software development life cycle. And this is definitely true with software testing.
"Wouldn’t it be cool if…"
We’ve all had that thought about something. How do you get from there to a product you can use and share with others? When I found myself playing with an idea that seemed exciting and new, I decided to capture some notes on the process, from the perspective of an Engineering Manager at a company that’s all about implementing people’s creative visions.
Art+Logic is sponsoring and presenting at Music Tectonics on October 27th and 28th. The virtual conference, with engaging and enticing presenters, promises me the opportunity to slip back into a world I once knew well and vicariously experience the road not travelled.
As I said in that post:
Kim Renard Nazel is best known as Arabian Prince, a founding member of the ’90s rap group N.W.A. whose raw lyrics on police brutality inspired a generation of West Coast rappers. But the producer and artist, who goes by his stage name, has long been a tech geek passionate about closing the digital divide.
This week, the Compton-bred rapper-turned-entrepreneur launched his latest endeavor, Covitech, a platform intended to get people back to work safely. The cloud-based suite of apps provides a protocol plan for small-to-medium businesses, giving them access to COVID-19 screening, testing resources and often hard-to-procure protective equipment.

When designing custom software, designers often need to keep user roles in mind to make an efficient and effective user experience for multiple workflows. By taking a look at the needs of each user, we can design for multiple intuitive user flows while retaining a clean, cohesive look and feel.
One of the most common misconceptions about software testing is that QA does not come into play until the development of a module is complete and ready to test.
In actuality, the earlier QA is involved in the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) the better. Studies have shown that up to two-thirds of defects can be attributed to requirements and design.
