During March we saw some interesting articles out of Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2016, Bluetooth World 2016, and we saw kids having fun with technology at the Big Bang Fair. I've included some of the more popular pieces in the round up below.
Updates on the community
Readability and font rendering
We recently deployed the new global cookie treatment and with this done, we are starting a new project to improve the readability of the Community in general, and fix the font rendering issues. Thank you all for your patience so far while we get to this issue.
We are a little past the requirements stage, and with new brand guidelines we need to balance a number of factors in the solution. I will be looking for members to help with some light user testing, so if you would like to help out, please drop me a message.
Growing the Community
We've been doing a lot more in terms of site and content promotion across different channels recently to help raise the Community's profile. If you follow any of our social channels, it would be great if you can help spread the word on our Community and help to build our expertise by liking, sharing and following.
You can also help by sharing content to you own social channels by using the social icons on the right of every piece of content. Good old word of mouth is invaluable too, it all helps!
If you're not following our channels yet, choose your favourite channel by clicking the icons below, these are the main channels we are promoting on right now, but there are more at in the footer of the page:
More support to help get started
I recently authored two blogs, one explaining the basics on how to get started in the Connected Community, the other outlining what you can do here, and how this Community can help with examples of content. Feel free to leave a comment if you have a suggestion for improvements, or like it if they helped you.
If you missed it - featured content
Graphics week (online)
Starting next week (18 - 22 April) the ARM Mali Graphics are promising a week full of content here on the Community - if you're quick, you can still help with the social thunderclap and be in with a chance of winning a Galaxy Samsung S7. freddijeffries gives us a taste of what to expect in: Get Set for Graphics Week!
Tip - Did someone help you or tell you something interesting?
If someone replied to your question, blog or other content, there a number of ways you can thank them or let them know it was helpful to you:
In questions, you can mark replies as Helpful, Liked or, if it answered your question, click 'Correct Answer'.
Not only does this contribute to the Point System and Status Level, but people searching for an answer to the same question will know there is a solution. It also gives the person that contributed a warm fuzzy feeling inside!
