The Recap: August 22, 2014

We post a lot of hyperlinks over on our MojoTech Twitter account each week. But we know it can be hard to keep up with all that knowledge.

Each week we pick the best of what we've looked at and post it in The Recap.

One of our core philosophies is built around the idea of having a Minimal Viable Product to take to market and test your assumptions. As a result, we spend a lot more time prototyping than we do writing documentation. This piece on The power of prototypes and how to utilize them sums up some of these ideas nicely.

Because we're in the middle of a pretty big hiring phase (check out our openings!), we were glad to read this article on How Great Marketing Helps Companies Hire Top Talent (Our Marketing Director couldn't agree more!)

Designer types should be sure to check out these two expansive sets of info: High-level advice and guidelines for writing sane, manageable, scalable CSS and A Designer's Guide to DPI. They're both excellent.

Two good UI/UX articles caught our eyes this week: Responsive Design: Why and how we ditched the good old select element and X to Close: The origins of the use of [x] in UI design.

How about 5 Email Marketing Mistakes That Are Killing Your Open Rates?

Speaking of design, we take a fair amount of care to ensure that everyone who works here can appreciate and value some level of Design Thinking. This Infographic of What a Design Centered Company Looks Like is a pretty good example of how that might manifest itself.

Finally a few pats on the back: MojoTech was named to the Inc. 5000 and we're quite proud of hitting that milestone once again. And this piece by CEO Nick Kishfy on Whether you need a Programmer or an Engineer? was received quite nicely and generated some interesting discussions.

See you next week.
