Portage La Prairie, Manitoba Web Design & Development Articles

More and more of our experience online is personalized. Search engines, news outlets and social media sites have become quite smart at giving us what we want. Perhaps Ali, one of the hundreds of people I've interviewed about our emotional attachment to technology, put it best: "Netflix's recommendations have become so right for me that even though I know it's an algorithm, it feels like a friend." Personalization algorithms can shape what you discover, where you focus attention, and even who you interact with online. When these algorithms work well, they can feel like a friend. At the same time, personalization doesn't feel all that personal. There can be an uncomfortable disconnect when we see an ad that doesn't match our expectations.The post Designing For The Internet Of Emotional Things appeared first on Smashing Magazine.
On the Maatwebsite Medium.com site they've posted a retrospective of their last several years of work on the Laravel Excel Open Source package. Laravel Excel (https://github.com/Maatwebsite/Laravel-Excel) turned 4 years last November and has reached almost 6 million Packagist downloads. A good time to reflect on 4,5 years of open source development. The article starts with a bit of history behind the initial development of the package as a simple wrapper around PHPExcel. It covers some of the initial syntax of the tool and features included from the start. The project moved on to v1.x with a complete rewrite and then into v2.x with support for the Laravel v5.x framework releases. It then talks about their "support conundrum" as they reached 1 (then, later, 6) million package downloads. They cover some of the usual project support issues, a reduction in their work on the package and how they worked to "fix it for everyone". The post also talks about their "open source rehab" and how it changed their view from its recent "because 1 million people use it" back to making a difference in developers' lives. It finishes up talking about some of the "lessons learned" in how it worked with Laravel, a retrospective on its current state and a look forward at Laravel Excel v3.0.
