Happy to see that the new Docker for Mac / Windows app is out of beta, now a GA / Production Ready release. Originally Docker had to use VirtualBox on those operating systems, running a Linux based VM to run the Docker containers. With this release, Docker has shifted to using built in Hypervisor support within the operating systems themselves, dropping the requirement for VirtualBox. Also includes a useful UI and easier volume mounting. If you haven't tried using containers for development before, it's an ideal time to try it out with this release.
Today, we are excited to announce that Docker for Mac and Docker for Windows are graduating from beta and are now stable and ready for production.

Had an article published in Web Designer Magazine issue 240, which covers an introduction to +github's Atom editor.  Love using the editor anyway and was fun to write an article that delved into the technology it's built upon, the features it comes with and all the amazing packages and themes available.

Very happy to have the chance to speak at FullStack 2015 (London 26th - 28th, #FullStackCon, run by +Skills Matter) on the topic of Metalsmith and Static site generation.  Can't wait, plus I get the added advantage of seeing a truly fantastic set of other speakers covering all things #JavaScript, #Node.js and Internet magic related.  Let me know if you're thinking of coming :)

Really tempted to try out Go as a new language to learn, but finding it hard to decide what I could build with it.  Always find it easier to learn something if I have a little project that I'd like to put together.

Introduction
I'm a web developer who started out using PHP / MySQL to build a website for a clan I had founded.  Years later I managed to make the jump from a network / desktop support job to an actual web developer role, using ColdFusion and Microsoft SQL Server.

Also really into my games, movies and reading.  I'm an avid gamer on my XBox360, although tend to play older releases as I'm always catching up.
