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
I have been invited to present at the Adobe Summit in Las Vegas this year! I'm chuffed to bits! The session is called "L302", or for us humans, "Integrate AEM with Analytics, Target and DTM". My colleague Alexander Saar and I are going to walk a lab full of eager people through an example of … Continue reading Come see me at the US Summit
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog. Here's an excerpt: The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 74,000 times in 2015. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 3 days for that many people to see … Continue reading 2015 in review
