Whenever I wrote this in the past, I always checked what I had written the year before. I checked whether I had set myself any goals, and how I had or hadn't achieved those. Well... 2019 was tough due to personal reasons. 2020 is better left unmentioned for a lot of reasons, and 2021, though … Continue reading 2021 for Developers
Tim Wilson posted a tweet about obscure references the other day, which reminded me of all the things that I put into articles on the blog here, and how nobody ever called out any of those. So, because nobody has asked for it, but you are all at my mercy for it is me who … Continue reading Obscure References

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.
