Explore how I'm helping my son learn Python to bridge the gap in computer science education. As the head of .NET development at DEPT® and a concerned parent, I understand the importance of equipping our children with essential skills for the future. Join me on this journey to empower the next generation with programming fundamentals, problem-solving abilities, and a growth mindset. Together, we can ensure they thrive in a technology-driven world.
As the head of development at DEPT®, I've seen firsthand that being a great developer means more than just writing clean and efficient code. To truly excel in this field, you must adopt a mindset of continuous improvement, be open to learning new skills and technologies, and develop a deep understanding of the underlying infrastructure and engineering aspects. In this blog post, I will share some key strategies that have helped my team and me unlock our full potential and become the best developers we can be.

In this blog post, I want to share my reflections on the journey to Sandan, and what it took to achieve this significant milestone in my martial arts journey.

Discussing the benefits of local load testing, and how k6 can also be used for regression/integration testing
Now that Optimizely 12 runs on .NET 5 it can be run on a Mac, and with most front enders using Macs, I thought it might be useful to demonstrate the steps on how to get it up and running on a Mac.
The role of a Technical Architect seems to be on of the more fluid roles in a Digital Agency, each Technical Architect has different skills, and each project has different requirements.
Finally default values have been added as an option in Content Models in the Contentful CMS
Also built on Contentful and Azure Cognitive Search
Contentful doesn't have an option to choose a target for links in a rich text field (yet), so for now I assume that external links should be opened in a new tab. This is achieved with an IContentRenderer.
After sitting the exam, I thought I would document some of the ways I prepared for the exam, and what I found most useful out of the material.
This week I successfully passed my Optimizely (formerly Episerver) Content Cloud certifcation.
