Back on the Blogging Wagon

It feels like months and months since I wrote a meaningful post on here. I’d love to say it’s just that I’m too busy, but it’s really that I’ve not prioritised this over all the other things that are going on. I’ve got into speaking at events, and I’m loving that, so quite a lot of my time goes on researching and writing talks. The rest of the time usually reserved for writing has gone into coding for an internal project. This gives me loads of time to put into practice all the stuff I’m talking about, to really try it out, but some of that time could be better spent writing it up for you to read about, rather than just hear about it.

So, let’s catch up. I’ve had some fun with a few minor projects recently:

  • Jquery-object-fit is now on bower – thanks to John K. Paul for the nudge
  • I made a grunt plugin for yslow: grunt-yslow-test. You can get it from npm
  • I was on the Upfront Podcast, talking about web performance
  • I gave a pecha kucha talk on automating dev processes at Berkshire Digital, the slides for which make no sense at all without the transcript (which is below the slides)
  • I’m in the process of buying a house, and a proper one at that. That one is quite stressful.

So, this is me getting back onto the blogging wagon. There’s lots more to come…
