Using Bitbucket for Automated Deployment of Multiple Repositories

Using Bitbucket for Automated Deployment of Multiple Repositories

I’ve recently started using Bitbucket as a kind of off-site backup for my Git repos - it works beautifully with SourceTree as you can have all commits pushed to the “origin” repo by default. Lovely. Usually I work locally with MAMP, pushing updates to a staging server if I need to show the client or something. Before now, I did… read more →

Blog Post Amnesty

Blog Post Amnesty

Hello there. It’s been a while. After a promising start to 2012, sadly my good intentions to post more fell by the wayside as other commitments piled up. After a while, I’d lost the momentum that I’d built up in the first quarter of the year, so even though I kept thinking to myself that I really should do a… read more →

New Adventures In Web Design 2012

New Adventures In Web Design 2012

Following on from the successful first event - my first ever web conference - in 2011, New Adventures made an equally successful return with their 2012 installment last week.
