Recently, I worked on a project where we migrated an intranet from a custom PHP CMS with over 3000 pages, to Kentico V6. This content migration (my first with Kentico) went very smoothly. That's right, I used the words smooth and migration together.

After a dozen years of working in the digital services sector we’ve got a lot of stories to share. Heck, we could write enough stories to fill quite a few books! But this is a blog – a list will have to do.

Developer Doodles

Bill Gates doodles. Google doodles. John F. Kennedy doodled his favourite sail boat just below a ringed note to blockade Cuba. It seems nearly everyone doodles and contrary to our cultural biases studies are now beginning to show that sketching in the margins is anything but trivializing the complex.
