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!

Meet the CTO is a new series about CTOs, their daily lives, roles, and responsibilities. In our first edition, we talk to Morten Primdahl from Zendesk.
It’s a sad fact that the tech industry is still vastly dominated by men. Currently, only around 25% of all tech jobs are held by women. The number is even smaller for management roles, with only 14% of all CTO positions in tech companies belonging to women. 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.
As more and more of our beloved apps run solely in the browser, we as users are beginning to rely on browser notifications to get updates on new activities.

Keeping up with new trends and tactics is important as you develop successful web strategies for your clients. Conversely, it’s just as important to realize when it’s time to retire older practices that have been shown to be problematic.
Web design and best practices for user experience continue to evolve, but it’s amazing to see how much old, ineffective work is still hanging around out there. Many websites have been around since before we had a clear understanding of the value of conversions and how to create a clear path to success.
Use this checklist to help identify and understand, eliminate, and replace those web elements that have no place on a website in 2017.
No matter to whom in tech I talk to. Most people and tech companies seem to struggle with hiring developers.
And since I have the feeling that hiring is a topic that doesn’t get too much talk and attention (maybe because of people struggling with it), I think it’s our obligation to share the biggest lessons we’ve learned at Usersnap.
