As a writer, I'm a sucker for good storytelling. Storytelling humanizes our industry. Storytelling truly moves people and builds relationships, not just sales. Strong relationships create brand loyalists — your believers for life, who will consistently support your brand and sing your praises to their friends. Indeed, storytelling is a powerful tool.
Last Friday, our entire team sat down together over a warm, delicious Thanksgiving potluck meal. Everyone brought a little something and it turned out to be a full-on feast. We recently had two new employees join our team so this was also a great time to get to know them better.
As developers, we often have to go to the command line to take a look at text files. Have you ever run cat on a giant text file and and waited five minutes for the whole thing to display? Have you ever sifted for a specific line in a log that is 99.9 percent full of stuff you don’t care about?

I've always loved exploring and experiencing new sights, smells and tastes. I could ramble on for a while about all of the awesome shops and restaurants OKC has to offer (maybe in another post), but what about all that can be found outside the city?

I all but completely revert into my 9-year-old inquisitive self when released into the wild, stopping every 50 feet to squat and stare at some bug or plant just off the path or stand atop the nearest rock. Lucky for me, there are so many places around here to slake my wanderlust. Here are a few of my favorites.
Images have a huge impact on a website's performance, simply due to their file size and type. Thankfully, today, we have ways to deliver the best option to users. When we stop and think about how images are loaded, what image type is the best solution, and how optimized an image is, we can keep a site's literal cost down and stay within our performance budget.
To volunteer means "to offer oneself for some service or undertaking," but to me it means much more. It means seeing the smile on a kid's face after they receive a free, healthy meal. The tears of joy from learning a new skill you never thought you'd master. The heartfelt thank you at the end of the day.
As an Oklahoma girl who regularly taps into the pulse of all of the goings-on in our great city (and it is a great city), I would like to discuss a certain … phenomenon that occurs around this time every year. October 28 marks the official beginning of the 2015–2016 Thunder Basketball season. From now through June, our Oklahoma City air is filled with something magical, intangible and oh-so wonderful.
Have you ever thought about how much social media truly affects your life? People all over the world are connected daily. Think about it, where do the majority of people go to see pictures of their favorite celebrities? The celebrities' Instagram accounts. Where do people go to see what's happening in the news? Facebook's "Trending Topics". And now, with Twitter's new "Moments" feature, it's a perfect place to see what is happening all over the world in real-time. We’re connected, and we’re connected fast.
