NHL, Rogers and Shaw deserve a call for how they treat their clients. As spring continues to heat up, the playoffs begin to heat up as well. We've already started witnessing hockey fans jumping boats to cheer for the future Stanley Cup champions, while committed Oilers fans will skulk off muttering about high hopes for retribution next season.
Web development is very much a collaborative endeavour between client and developer. Where the client has invaluable insight into their own brand, company goals, consumer buying patterns and ethos, the developer, however, has insight into the ways of the web.
As we find ourselves settling into 2016, it's surprising to think that people are still underestimating the importance of a good website.

We've said it before and we'll say it again - you need a responsive website. As mobile browsing rates grow each year with more and more people browsing from cell phones and tablets, it's better to hop on board before this particular train has totally left the station. We're officially at the point of no return - if your site isn't mobile friendly, you need to fix that, now.
