I also have a lot of respect for Urs, so when he challenged my … Continue reading No Custom Code – is an Extension the answer?
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?
