Check back each Friday for a quick digest of articles, resources, events, promotions, and other goodies worth a first or second glance on InformIT.

And remember… today marks the solstice and first day of summer for the northern hemisphere. Hope you enjoy those extra minutes of sunshine with a good book or two!
