Is it still possible to muddle through?
Mon, Sep 18th 2017 11:35a   Matt White
I was reading this article while waiting for some code to deploy this morning, and a couple of sentences really leapt out at me... “The British way is to muddle through on the basis of vaguely understood traditions and conventions. Our entire culture, from our political constitution to the way we queue, is based on that principle of minimal principles.” — https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/sep/18/level-playing-field-commuters-british-green-lanes-tube The sam

Evernote to Bear
Tue, Sep 12th 2017 8:22a   Matt White
I’ve been an Evernote user for years. But recently it’s been an on and off thing as I get more and more annoyed with their service. The problem is that I keep trying to find something that will do everything I need, find a tool that I think might work and it never quite does so I crawl back to Evernote with my tail between my legs. The issues with Evernote are several, I use it all day long for note taking in meetings, writing blog posts, planning out code changes and so on. Over time, the

Do you know what your users are doing?
Tue, Sep 5th 2017 9:43a   Matt White
There are levels to this question. I'm sure most of us that run web apps know to some degree what our users are doing, but, if you have the need, you can find out in real detail what they're doing and in what order.Obviously there are paid tools, entire companies that make this their business such as SessionCam. And what they do is great if you have the budget. But what about for those of us with slightly smaller wallets?My usual approach to the problem these days is to use Google Analytics (o

Often when I talk with developers who are firmly in the C# or Java camp their main objection to JavaScript is that it’s not strongly typed. And indeed, if you’re new to the world of JavaScript, this is a big thing to get over. But there are strategies, best practices if you will, which can make the transition easier. One I thought worth mentioning is ESLint. This is a process whereby you statically validate your code to make sure it adheres to a set of rules you define. These rules can b

We're just back from holidays down in Cornwall and Devon and a lovely time was had by all. A view of Falmouth from one of our walks Of course there has to be one exception: whenever we do any travel in the UK, I rarely carry change with me these days. And so, when parking the car, we rely on the various mobile parking apps to pay for our spaces.

Three months in with the new MacBook Pro
Wed, Aug 2nd 2017 7:51a   Matt White
A few months ago our house got burgled. Luckily it was just "stuff" that was taken and the insurance companies sorted everything out with remarkably little fuss and bother.One bit of "stuff" that went was my work laptop, so I immediately got a new MacBook Pro 15", restored my backup and was able to carry on working. The problem is that I'm still not feeling like I'm able to work as well as I was on the old machine. Now, admittedly that old machine h

In the day job, I deal with a lot of interactions between members of the public and ourselves, and our partners. If you're in any way involved in working with user data, then you'll have heard about GDPR.To be honest, this is quite a new world for me. Even though I've been working in web development for many many years, it's generally been in the business or corporate space where we're less concerned about these issues. What I've learned has really opened my eyes to exactly how you see tho

IBM Connect goes to the pub
Thu, Feb 16th 2017 2:50p   Matt White
As some people begin their trek to the new venue of IBM Connect in San Francisco over the next couple of days, not all of us are going. Instead, we decided to host a free beer event in London to watch the OGS Keynote next Tuesday evening. So, if you're in town and want to come along then we'd love to see you. You can register to attend (so that we know you're coming) here.
