    Mobile developers must balance priorities – and expect failures
    Ben Dolmar, mobile technology manager at Minneapolis-based app developer The Nerdery, said he believes mobile developers must be ready to deal with problems throughout the app development cycle. By doing so, these developers will be better equipped to understand the root cause of a problem, resolve the issue and work toward producing the best app possible. "Problems are a standard part of development," Dolmar told FierceDeveloper. "My advice to a developer who encounters a seemingly intractable problem is to step away from the code and start talking through the specific problem."

    Most Common Digital Design Distractions
    "Advertisements are a leading cause of experience disruption on a website. Particularly advertisements that are out of context and unrelated to content that someone is inclined to find. By using them, businesses sacrifice user happiness, engagement, adoption, retention, and task completion at the expense of clicks. Alternatively, consider leveraging digital to deliver effective content and innovate business models." – Casey Kaplan, Principal UX Designer at The Nerdery

    At The Nerdery, it's good to be a 'Nerd'
    Like it or not, mobile developers are often considered "nerds," i.e., people who are overly intellectual and obsessive about their work. On the other hand, there is The Nerdery, a team of "Nerds" who are passionate about solving complex business problems. Jon Rexeisen, The Nerdery's principal software engineer for iOS, said the company's app development cycle involves continuous integration. "Launching an app is the culmination of a lot of work," Rexeisen said. "When development feels that work is completed, we have a crack QA department go over everything with a fine-toothed comb."
