Gian Genovesi, Magento Delivery Leader:

From open-source hater to no. 1 fan: Microsoft now tops Google, Facebook in GitHub contributors

From zero to hero in open source contributions, MSFT has done a complete 180 in open source support and adoption. 

 

Mike Iaconis, Senior JD Edwards Consultant:

Chinese heir buys his dog over $6,000 worth of iPhones

I’m not sure what a dog would do with an iPhone but then again, my cat does like to play on my iPad. Don’t show this article to someone who stood in line for hours only to be told the store has sold out.

 

Dave Balser, JD Edwards Delivery Leader:

Watch bacteria evolve in 11 days, overcoming 1000 times the antibiotic strength the original wild bacteria could survive.

Money quote: “It’s like a game of bacterial whack-a-mole. We hit them with bigger and bigger hammers, and they wear better and better hats.”

 

Navarr Barnier, Magento Developer: 

It's been a crazy year this year, what with the 2016 election. So crazy, in fact, that it appears Japan has simply lost it. Catching all the rage in Japan: Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen
 

Jim Mather, Magento Developer:

World’s first baby born with novel three-parent embryo technique

This is so cool.

 

Greg Crane, Magento Developer:  

Microsoft’s cancer moonshot: Debug the disease as if it’s a computer glitch

 

Michelle Kowalski, Designer:

What's Your Pierogi Personality

This campaign is a little bizarre for Mrs. T's, so just focus on the most important part: October 8th is National Pierogi Day.

 

Hannah Gierosky, Marketing Specialist:

'Hamilton' Star Lin-Manuel Miranda is Ready for His Next Coup

Having never actually seen "Hamilton" live, I'm a huge fan of the soundtrack and Lin-Manuel Miranda. I'm ready for whatever he has up his sleeves next!
