Healthy progress

As part of the learning path towards Cloud Developer certification, I’ve decided to invest in React as my chosen UI/UX Framework. The firm I work for has a great deal of projects using it and there is a clear cross over from my previous experience in AngularJS / Angular. I’m really happy with the work …

UX Testing

So part of my new role at work is to try and improve the User Experience on one of the companies many (internal) sites. The site in question has recently had a refresh and my initial involvement was to help port content from the previous design into the latest. During this I made some observations …

ionic experiment

As a total novice to all things Android development, imagine my surprise at being told the team I’m working in are using a framework called ionic. I’d never heard of it before, but the guys I’ve spoken to about it are well impressed it. That’s good enough for me I thought.  So I hit the …

T-shaped developer

Then I spotted the 7.4.3 release …

Joy, Inc.

As part of our Lean Lunch videos on a Wednesday we watched this. Everyone should watch it, because we all need to see how we could do it too. Caroline even leant me her copy of the book!

Multi-site success

As a certified Umbraco Developer I should really know better, but I am a very happy camper tonight. My work is rolling out a couple of upgraded sites in v.7 of Umbraco, instead of their current v4.6. Rather than duplicate a shed load of templates and copy, as only one or two sections are different, …
