March 28, 2021 — A recent (Comscore) study suggests users spend more time (87%) on a native app compared to mobile web because native apps are more predictable, they work offline, show notifications, and have access to mobile sensors.
However, 78% of the time is spent in the user’s top three apps.
Mobile web has a better reach (100 visits/ month for an average user) but does not does have a native-like experience.
This talk explains how we can get the best of both worlds by using Progressive Web Apps with WordPress to combine the capabilities of native apps and the reach of the web.

May 10, 2020 — In a world increasingly run by software, failures can be caused by bugs.
Failure to find and fix bugs quickly has a financial, personal and reputational cost to an organisation. It can impact on product delivery time as well.
A large portion of developer’s time is spent in debugging.
However, when was the last time we worked on improving our debugging skills?
This is one of the rarely discussed topics.
