Flat Design Is Taking Over, I Guess
The new design seems to be copying the "metro" or flat look and I really don't think it looks good.
The old books had an actual recognizable style.
The new ones look like generic non-style to me.
Speaking of books, I was at a Barnes & Noble last weekend and figured I would see what new programming books they had. There must have been over 3 shelves dedicated to Python, and no C# offerings...nothing Visual Studio, and nothing VB either! Things have changed since I last bought a technical/programming book in 2011.

Hey, have you been to my local B&N?
That's the same books they have here at ours.
We have some Java books too, but that is because we are very close to a University and as we all know Universities try to use old technology. They definitely don't want students entering the work market with current skills.
Hi, like tasks that one could consider to be really needed. One may think of things like creating webpages for charities, or helping disabled people by designing electronic aids, maybe low cost solutions with microcontrollers, ect. Or processing/collecting data with help of self written programs, with benefit for people. So I mean: not really being competition, but somehow filling a void, where some help is needed. So i would like a collection of possible activities/ careers.
