YT Izzo – Part Drei

I’m approaching the 1000km mark on this bike in the 3 months I’ve had it. A few more subtle changes have been made that further refine the bike to my tastes. I was very much on the border of large and extra large, I went with XL, and I realised the bike was marginally too…… Continue reading YT Izzo – Part Drei

HTML is semantic. We have built in methods for creating usable, readable, and accessible websites using HTML elements. Semantic HTML is the use of HTML markup to reinforce the semantics, or meaning, of the information in webpages and web applications rather than merely to define its presentation or look.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semantic_HTML Everything is aiming to be rendered…… Continue reading HTML, hyperlinks, buttons, and onClicks

No thanks Apple Watch

I had a Garmin watch. Which I wasn’t impressed with. It was just OK. The user interface and quality of their app store wasn’t good, and the user submitted watch faces embarrassingly bad. I liked being connected though. One day the whole watch reset itself and the watch face I had in there I couldn’t…… Continue reading No thanks Apple Watch

MVP

I’m not sure about MVP (Minimum Viable Product). I get the concept, and I agree with it—it’s an important concept within Agile, but I feel it gets misunderstood in software development as an excuse to let bad code through. That’s not entirely fair – the bad code, or rather, the shortcut code, often goes through…… Continue reading MVP
