So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieu

I arrived with my family in Ireland more than 5 years ago, on a cold, rainy night at the end of January 2013. It was the start of a new chapter in our lives, accompanied by a lot of changes. I got to work in some great places, some very well known all around the […]

To a new year and new beginnings

  I look back and realize that it’s been way too long since I last wrote something on this blog. And I don’t want to slip into the new year without cutting off this trend. Therefore I decided to do a review of 2017. I know, it’s a bit clichĂ©, but everyone does it, so […]

Presenting DublinCSS

I have been actively involved with local meetups here in Dublin for more than half a year now. Yet, despite all the tech companies present here, there was no group dedicated primarily to the mastery of HTML/CSS/SVG. I’m talking about web technologies and skills that are indeed easy to learn but very difficult to master. […]

At the Dawn of Spring

The first quarter of 2016 almost out of the way, and everyone around is waiting for the spring to finally settle. Now it’s a good time to take a small break and make a summary of the accomplishments I made so far. Everyone needs a bit of extra motivation every now and then, even if […]

“Internet. The final frontier of human communication. These are the voyages of the SitePoint ambassadors. Their continuous mission: to push the limits of UX, design and web technologies. To spread out knowledge and best practices. To boldly go where no other web geek has been before.” I wrote these words back in June when I […]

I’m a SitePoint author

Today marks an important milestone in my professional career. My second article got published by SitePoint.com. I did indeed say “second”, as the first one was published on August 5th. Normally I should have marked that day as the more important one. But today proved that I can persevere and that I can go further […]

To framework or not to framework

Recently I had a discussion with an agency designer over the preferred work process and, more precisely, the use of front end framework such as Bootstrap or Foundation. Personally, I am a huge fan of Bootstrap and I have used it on all my recent projects. My companion, on the other hand, advocated custom solutions, […]

A new year, a new beginning

Note to self: When you write your blog post, always save draft before uploading media. You won’t risk loosing the entire text, thus being forced to write it again. Or better, write it somewhere else and just copy/paste it to WordPress We return to our scheduled program. I’m trying to keep true to my new […]

LinkedIn InMaps scheduled to close

A while ago I had discovered a very interesting application from LinkedIn Labs – the InMaps. This application will connect to your LinkedIn account and put all your connections in visual format. Here’s what my network looked like at that time:   Today I got a notification that InMaps is being discontinued on September 1, 2014 […]

Eight Long Irish Months

It’s been such a long time since I’ve written here. So many things have happened since my arrival here in Ireland. While I might enter into more details later, here’s a brief summary: Spent about 6 weeks looking for the first job, including a battery of tests and interview with Yahoo! While the position was […]
