Episode 8: Working In Your Strata
In this episode we wonder about IE10, what’s really the top mobile OS, and have an interview with Kevin Hoffman (@kevinmhoffman), one of the Experience Directors for Happy Cog. He gives us some insights into one of the country’s best known web design firms, talks about working at the right level, and explains how to make meetings NOT suck.
