  1. Elegant Objects by Yegor Bugayenko

    Posted on

    At last month's Code Cabin, I was chatting with Steve Temple about Ditto and best coding practices, he suggested that I read Elegant Objects by Yegor Bugayenko, as it made him think totally differently about object-oriented programming. Looking around Yegor's blog, I liked his ideas, so I ordered the book ... I even noticed a small CSS bug on his blog and submitted a fix for it. I do love open-source! A day or so…

  2. Code Syntax Highlighting in Wyam

    Posted on

    I'd been going back and forth on how I should handle the syntax highlighting of my blog's code snippets. A popular choice would be to use a JavaScript library, (such as Prettify or Prism). I have nothing against those libraries, but in the pursuit of making my website fast and lightweight, I wanted a non-JavaScript option. My idea was to use a .NET library to convert my source-code snippets into colourised markup. The only library…

  3. Code Cabin 2016

    Posted on

    Next weekend will be the inauguration of Code Cabin. If you haven't heard about Code Cabin yet, it's a weekend retreat for 20 developers; a chance to get together share ideas and hack some code. If you want to know more about the backstory, watch the uHangout episode when Matt announced it back in April. All the tickets for this Code Cabin sold out before the end of June, but if it sounds like something…

  4. Bulk Photo Resizing with ImageProcessor

    Posted on

    I'm currently on a month long holiday in Sri Lanka, taking a nice overdue break from work, (much respect to Rich for holding the Umbrella fort!). During my travels, I've been keeping a family blog - journal updates, add a few photos, etc. However the WiFi upload speeds at the various hotels we've been staying at have been painful slow; uploading a single photo (around 3Mb) to our blog or even Facebook is taking an…

  5. GitHub Activity Patterns: Star & Fork

    Posted on

    Confession time, I check my GitHub activity feed dashboard as much as I check my Twitter timeline. I know a lot of people who ignore their GitHub dashboard, but for me I find it a great source of information... to see who is working on what; if there are any new Umbraco related open-source projects; and also if anyone has starred or forked one of my projects. Over the past few years I've noticed patterns…

  6. umBristol hiatus

    Posted on

    At our recent umBristol meetup earlier this month, I announced that there wouldn't be another meet-up until after the summer, as I'll be away on extended holiday; plus, there's CodeCabin in early September. I proposed to the group that if they wanted to organise an umBristol whilst I was away, then I can give them organiser access rights on the Meetup.com group. Now, between you and me, I'm hoping that someone steps up to the…
