Welcome to the July Newsletter!

Hello, subscribers!

It’s a shame that summer is almost over, isn’t it? It goes by so fast!

To cheer you up, we have another programming joke for you!

Accelerated Mobile Pages are Live in Google Search!

Not long ago, Google announced the AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) initiative. It’s a collective effort between web developers, providers and content creators to optimize the mobile browsing ecosystem.

It’s time to start converting your pages to AMP format! But we don’t expect you to do it alone.
