This article is absolutely not technical. At all. Instead, it is about me, and about this blog. Without further ado: I am leaving consulting. Phew, there it is. Only took me a day or so to write that. Today is officially my first day in my new role, as a manager in the Technical Account … Continue reading The Times They Are a-Changin’
Woah, what a year! I just read through my article from last year, and, boy, did we not see this coming! I did not set myself any goals for this year, and I have been scaling down ever since. The Good But I did actually achieve two things in 2020! First, I published a whopping … Continue reading 2020 for Developers
Our industry is young. So much so that almost no one I work with has any sort of education in it. We all came in sideways, often accidentally. So when Randy Floyd Jr commented on my last article, and my (mild) impostor syndrome went "what? seriously?" I decided to explain how I got to where … Continue reading Of Shoulders and Giants
Another year done, phew. I did not set myself any goals this time around, and that was a good thing. At home, we had a slightly difficult year, and as a result, everything was different, slower, scaled down, more restraint. If I look at my three goals for 2018 (kick that s_code.js article of its … Continue reading 2019 for Developers
Those of you who have been to the Adobe Summit, or any other big event like it, may have been a victim of post-Summit blues - the feeling when you're back from a couple of ridiculously intense days of listening, meeting, talking, discussing, and fully committing to one single subject. It is part exhaustion, part … Continue reading Quo vadis, W4D?
It has been a fun year. Launch came in with a bang, and the "Make an Extension" series was a nice frame for 2018. Overall, the year was slightly less technical than usual, I'd say. Articles like A Standard Data Model for Requirements, When concrete meets water, or The Era of Server-side Everything were not … Continue reading 2018 for Developers
Building up on the recent post about Basic Tracking on AMP Pages, I want to riff some more on a couple of aspects today. Also, my colleague Susan Vertrees happened to sit next to me a couple of weeks ago, and since she knows what she is talking about, she was able to point out … Continue reading More about AMP
No way is anyone going to read an article on the 2nd of January, right? There'll be one on the 9th, instead. Thank you for your patience!
2017 is drawing to a close, time for a a bit of introspection. The year was slightly slower than 2016, both from a content point of view (24 articles versus 27 in 2016), and for traffic (~35k visitors and ~85k page views versus 37k/95k in 2016). I guess the former has a direct impact on … Continue reading 2017 for Developers
Here we go, yet another year under our belts. Time flies when you're having fun. In 2016, this blog had more than 30000 visitors, and it is close to cracking 100000 views. That is so incredible, I can barely believe it! Thank you all so much for reading what I write! This really makes me … Continue reading 2016 for Developers
