What is Net Neutrality and How Will it Affect You?

Posted on Tue, July 17, 2018 in Analytics & Reporting, User Experience, GRAYBOX News by Jon Love

The end of last year saw the Net Neutrality policies implemented by the FCC in 2015 effectively rolled back, opening the doors to a potentially different host of ways through which we will use the internet. That phrase -- “use the internet” -- is an intentional choice of words, intended to include not just the proverbial internet fast lanes and slow lanes, but more broadly, to encompass the ways in which we market brands, architect technical solutions, start (or shut down) companies, and build social interactions at a distance.

Posted on Fri, June 15, 2018 in GRAYBOX News by Anna-Marie Cooper

​The second week with the interns from Epicodus started off with a clear outline from Paul for the time-audit-automation project that Anna-Marie and Bryce have been assigned. Dan, Mark, and Kerri contributed to the outline, which helped them organize a project plan and divide up the tasks between themselves.

Hello From the New GRAYBOX Interns

Posted on Mon, June 11, 2018 in GRAYBOX News by Anna-Marie Cooper

On Monday, we started our eight week internship here at GRAYBOX after finishing up at Epicodus - a local coding bootcamp. Our program was spent studying Ruby, Rails, Angular, and Javascript.

However, members of the GRAYBOX made themselves available for questions and were very supportive.
