Coding and music go together like fries and ketchup, like peanut butter and jelly, like weekends and sleeping in. Our dev team at Usersnap loves their music. And their headphones, too.

Studies have shown that nine out of ten people are more productive when listening to music. Classical music and video game soundtracks for instance are said to have the biggest impact on productivity, since they avoid creating too much of a distraction.

But, coders being coders, they write their own rules. And, they are very particular about their own headphones as well (and not those plasticky thingies that get shipped with your iPhone).

With this in mind, we were wondering what our developers are listening to these days (and what tech this music is coming out of). So we did a (virtual) tour of the office and asked them about about their music preferences.  Spotify-Playlists included!

You’d think with all the innovative products, ideas and technologies launched every day, the tech industry would have figured out gender equality. Well, it hasn’t.

As technology keeps advancing into every aspect of our lives at a fast pace, this is something that has to change. Besides, with technology being one of the biggest and most future-proof industries out there, women are being left out of promising job opportunities.

It is more important than ever to make women seen and female voices heard. Today we want to present you 7 female CTOs that are leading the way for women in tech and that everyone should follow in 2017 and beyond.

There’s nothing worse than feeling you are wasting your time. Imagine putting all your time, energy, and resources into hiring someone and then they quit within a few months. You know those target posters you can put on the wall that say ‘Bang Head Here’? I’ve needed one many times. Hiring and retaining good developers is a cumbersome business.
