Windows 10

Changes coming to Windows

By John Janisse / June 1 2015 / News

Set your calendars: Microsoft will make Windows 10 available as a free upgrade on July 29 for anyone currently running Windows 8.1 or 7. Global estimates are that over 70% of all desktops and laptops run one of these two operating systems, so chances are that your home computer will be eligible for this upgrade.

This new upgrade is so important that Microsoft skipped it and went right to 10. And yes, it is free. In a statement released this morning, Microsoft said "Consumers will have one year from July 29th to take advantage of the free upgrade. Once a Windows device is upgraded to Windows 10, Microsoft will continue to keep it current for the supported lifetime of the device—at no cost." This is new for Microsoft, who has always charged for their operating system until now.

The Dunham Group is looking for a talented software/web developer to develop the back end of websites and perhaps some light server management. We've got a very talented staff of 7 (and growing), who provide web design and development as well as IT services. Being on the 'smaller' side, team members get to work on existing sites as well as new projects. You would be working primarily (90%) in the development area. We work with a strong team mentality. Our methodology is a modified SCRUM using Agile principles. We don't have bosses - we only have a team. We've built some very interesting web-based programs and applications. If you're up to it, you're smart, you're industrious and you believe in and exercise your talents and acquired abilities you might just like this team very much.

Responsive website design

Google is changing its mobile search algorithm today

By John Janisse / April 21 2015 / News, Web Design, SEO

Starting today, Google will start to rank mobile-friendly websites higher than those that aren't.

If you've used the internet on your phone (and more and more of us regularly do!) you know how frustrating it can be to land on websites where the navigation or videos don't work, or where you can't read anything because the text is too small. Google is aware of this and will now recommend mobile-friendly websites above those who are not mobile-friendly when you search on a mobile phone.
