Developer Diary: June 2019
I have often written blogs in a “developer diary” format for conferences or meetups, but I thought I’d try just writing what I have been up to month to month for an accurate description of dev life… it’s not all conference talks & side projects! Sometimes it's being tired and watching a lot of TV.
Developer Diary: Umbraco Roadshow Barcelona
Just a few days after returning from my trip to UFD19 in Frankfurt, I packed my bags and headed off on another Umbraco adventure. This time, Barcelona. I was joining the Spanish visit by the Umbraco roadshow an awesome new series of meetups organised by Callum Whyte.
Developer Diary: Umbraco Festival Deutschland 2019
Well, it's been a while since I blogged! What better excuse to start back than a conference trip!
Umbraco APIs with Swagger
Usually, my Umbraco projects involve extending Umbraco to contain custom APIs. As with any API we write, developers want to document it, for other devs, or maybe just ourselves!
SWiT Awards 2018
On 24th October this wee developer stepped out of her converse and in to some heels and to attend the Scotland Women in Tech awards. A chance to wear a nice dress and meet other women in tech? I’m in!
Developer Diary: CodeCabin 2018
3 nights, 23 techies, lots of food and an amazing view... what else could you want from an (un)conference?! In October 2018, I packed my bag and headed over the border to the north of England. I was off to CodeCabin 2018, hosted in Grindleford in the peak district to join a group of fellow Umbraco developers for a weekend of learning and coding.
Umbraco Headless Alexa Skill
If we are already friends, you will now I like to make API driven (headless) systems! Particularly connecting different systems, for example CMS content beyond just the website. Therefore when Umbraco announced their Headless service, I was intrigued to what could be done with it.
A few months ago, I asked for some podcast recommendations. Much to my surprise, I received so many recommendations! I have managed to listen to many of these since then, so thought I would share some of my favourites for developers.
Developer Diary: Ada Lovelace Day 2018
