Today we are improving OpenCoffee.ie. Just remind you that the OpenCoffee Club role is to organise real-world informal meetups to chat, network and grow in Ireland. To do that, we need to promote the website by creating a outstanding design and emphasize our members and share our meeting calendar to the world.
Sheila Newman wonders, “Live Feeds what are they?”
As part of my research I googgled ” what is a live feed”. Google brought me to “Live Feed is a 2006 horror film directed by Ryan Nicholson and starring Kevan Ohtsji, Taayla Markell and Stephen Chang”. I then changed it to Live feeds Google’s search response was “No definitions were found for Live Feeds”. Luckily for I have a third definition of what is meant by Live feeds .
My Definition of Live Feeds:
A live feed is an ever changing piece of information which is inserted in to a website and is then instantaneously updated on the screen.
I know some people will not agree but I welcome their insight as you would never learn anything if people did not share their opinion and knowledge!
