My Net-a-Porter Techblog entries (2013–2014)
I wrote a few entries on the Net-a-Porter tech blog in my various roles
there. (Details about my roles on my linkedin profile.)
Delighting your users with SBJson 4 (2013)
This is my first Pecha Kucha style talk, made at NSLondon meetup. The
sound is not great, and one of my slides is a bit misleading, but I have a
special fondness for this one as it’s the first time I’ve been invited to
Overcoming U-turns and Dead Ends: Lessons of using Scala, Akka & Spray on Heroku (2013)
I presented this “experience talk” at Scala eXchange 2013 with Sam
Dean. (I’m afraid you have to log in to view the video.) It’s a
mish-mash of stuff we learnt while building the backend of The
Netbook—Net-A-Porter’s social network offering.
Testing C with Libtap (2006)
I talked at YAPC::NA 2005 (I believe) on this topic and was approached by a
member of the audience to write it up as an article for ONLamp magazine.
This is the result.
Creating HTML with M4 (2002)
A long, long time ago I used
cpp to maintain my website. Later
I upgraded to
m4. I ended up writing an article on the subject, and this
was published in Linux Magazine.
