The holiday shopping season is upon us and some of the best eCommerce sites are already rolling out their holiday marketing strategy aimed at bringing customers to their store and through their checkout process. Last year’s biggest eCommerce day, Cyber Monday, saw $1.735 billion dollars change hands from desktop computer users to eCommerce stores - an 18% increase from the year before.

Working in the office can be very busy - and even stressful from time to time. Whether you're spending hours coding new apps and web pages, working on closing new deals, managing enterprise projects, or brainstorming ideas for marketing campaigns, things can get pretty tedious. So how do you relieve your team while keeping them motivated? Here's your answer - a ping pong table.

Today’s web development is rightly focusing in on mobile-first design because of the rise in the number of devices being produced and the quantity of mobile internet browsers. As smartphone technology has improved over the past few years so have end-user’s expectations about what they can accomplish while using their mobile device, from completing e-commerce transactions to collaborating on shared files.

When it comes to redesigning your website in this day and age, you simply must take the mobile user experience into account if you want your web presence to be successful. People no longer rely on using a desktop computer to browse the web. Now they can just whip out their smartphone and visit a site at a moment's notice.

On the second day of Adobe MAX, it became clear that there is a strong focus on the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite (DPS). However, there is a bigger story. That story recognizes that Adobe DPS has a purpose beyond coexisting with the Adobe AEM platform. Since its inception, DPS has been used in so many creative ways it has left the confines of the purely magazine/publications universe and shown value in many other areas both internally and externally to the organizations leveraging the tool.

The major overarching focus of the Adobe MAX 2014 conference, from my perspective, has been about how to bridge the different worlds that exist in technology today. Yesterday’s keynote focused on new Adobe app releases (Adobe Photoshop Sketch, Illustrator Draw, and Adobe Shape, to name three) and how to bridge the physical and digital worlds in terms of creativity. I wrote a blog post yesterday that touched on a couple of those topics. The demos from that keynote were quite impressive, and these new apps will, without a doubt, provide artists with more freedom to create and work from anywhere, on any device, at any time.
