Linux is still something that's new to me, I know the basics like to install some software I need to run sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get install in the terminal.

Creates beautiful timelines with Labella.js

03-12-2015

I came across this library today, and from a brief look it is both elegant and beautiful. I have seen a lot of timeline implementation before, but nothing as simple and nicely designed as this one. It is created and supported by Twitter, based on my experience with Bootstrap CSS framework by Twitter I think this will be an excellent framework as well.

Time to drop CSS and learn SASS/SCSS

30-11-2015

SASS/SCSS is the compiled version of CSS, it allows CSS to be written in a more dynamic and reusable way. The philosophy is make CSS, a very static language, into something that is more similar to a scripting language, then the SCSS file is then compiled back into a normal CSS file to be deployed. y introducing variables and splitting the single CSS file into different SASS/SCSS files (will be combined into one when releasing), this makes the CSS much easier to read and more maintainable. This is especially true when more than one developer is working on the same code base.

Is Docker the new Vagrant

19-11-2015

I have been a massive Vagrant fan since I was introduced to it in 2013/2014. To me, it is the first time I stepped into the world of DevOps and see the huge difference it made to a team. Before Vagrant, ensuring team member's machines and the server environments software versions is a huge headache. We always ran into issues where code works fine on one person's computer and ends up breaking on another machine. This is terrible news when the whole deployment process is meant to be automated. My Team had no choice but to increase the amount of manual testing done on the website to reduce these kind of issues getting through to production.

International postal address format

18-11-2015

I am currently working on a personal project which involves the user entering their address to be searched. I wanted to ensure this application is designed properly, so it can easily be scaled to work with international postal address. However, after some research it is still far from clear what format I should follow.
