Over the weekend I had a realisation. For years I’ve had the best intentions of keeping a blog, but I never actually wrote it.
Good documentation is very important and expected of open-source projects. We should hold our private projects to the same standard. The README is not a @todo. It should be available and up to date, even if only for our own benefit.
At the tail end of January this year I finally launched this website as my portfolio. The original launch was a personal milestone, not only because I’d had this domain for 4 years prior to putting anything worthwhile online, but mostly because I learnt a lot.

Following up on the new tools and techniques I’ve picked up recently while putting my portfolio and blog live such as moving my hosting to Linode VPS, I’m just writing to outline my decision to stop using WordPress as my ‘go to’ CMS.

I recently put my portfolio live and along the way embraced a lot of change and new tools and one of these changes was my recent decision to move my hosting from MediaTemple to Linode. (that’s my referral, please consider using it if this post is useful to you!) Linode, if you’ve not heard, offer […]
I do a lot of work using both PrestaShop and WordPress and a big difference I find between the two is support for developers. As it stands, Prestashop Theme developers have to hack away at the default theme each time they begin a new project. In contrast WordPress Theme developers have a choice of several starter […]
