I've just written a short article about the Certified ScrumMaster course I recently attended in London. The course was ran by Scrum guru Mike Cohn.

In my article I reflect on the four years I have been at Blueprint Web Tech, and some of the enlightening moments of my journey to becoming a ScrumMaster. Of course this is only the beginning, and I hope to blog on this subject over the coming months as I put my learnings into practise.

Excellent Guardian article talking about Manchester's limited digital ambition, for example the 2Mbs 2020 broadband target vs France's 100Mbs. Disappointing given Manchester's status as 2nd largest digital hub behind London.

Nice site that checks a website if serving what is considered 'best practice' in the way of favicons.

A short blog piece I wrote about the Manchester Umbraco Meetup Blueprint Web Tech hosted last summer. We hosted it on a boat that cruised the Bridgwater and Manchester Ship Canals, whilst attendees enjoyed beers and the usual mix of interesting Umbraco related talks and discussion.

There were three talks 1) Umbraco Code Garden by Ismail Myatt; 2) Belle / Umbraco v7 by Matt Brailsford; and finally 3) Structured content and intelligent content by Sam Flanagan. All top stuff!

An incredible remix of Factory Floor's Two Different Ways by Perc. Reminds me of just how good FF were at Manchester's Gorilla in December 2013 and at Islington Mill in 2014. Please come back!

Excellent AngularJS charting module available at:

Semantic markup and easy to configure/use – what's not to love!
