Welcome back to our developer blog series where Kiosked engineers explore the user experience side of digital ad formats. This post is written by Perry Mitchell, Senior Software Engineer and Front-end Team Lead at Kiosked. If you missed the introductory blog post by Daniel Bailo, head over here.
This post has been a long time coming, yet at the wake of recent global events it is more timely than ever to take a moment to reflect our thinking process, our fixed ways of doing things, and what actually drives us forward as an industry.
I recently represented Kiosked at the Forbes Under 30 Summit. The crowd was an eclectic mix of young entrepreneurs, university students, and startup mavericks.

In this new blog series we dive into digital content monetization and advertising experiences from a deeper technical point of view to understand what’s really going on. Our first blogger is Daniel Bailo, Software Engineer at Kiosked. He shares the big picture challenges and concrete steps taken to improve the user experience of Kiosked ads.
Let's face it. Websites today are fatter and slower than ever – yet at the same time, technology is taking enormous leaps forward. We own faster computers, we have powerful phones, the internet bandwidth is improving year over year.
