  • Posted to Ask DN: How do you cross-browser test?, in reply to Eliot Hill , Jan 02, 2015

    The same goes for builds that work fine in Virtual Box, but have bugs on the real thing.

    We moved away from Browserstack because it's harder to actually figure out what's causing the bug.

    So for us it's VirtualBox for windows and android tablets which is a pain, but works. Also device testing for iOS and Android.

  • Posted to I'm starting a blog. I need a writing app. What's the best?, Dec 16, 2014

    Depends on what device you want to write on. I did a full year writing on the iPad and for that Editorial was absolutely impressive. Recently I've started using a laptop again so I moved back to the basic iA Writter (I hear the Pro version isn't worth the price). iA Writter works beautifully on every platform, but is missing some features I've come to love from Editorial (built in browser, better markdown preview), however Editorial isn't optimised for the 6 Plus yet so I'm stuck using iA Writter again.

    A few weeks ago I discovered Whiskey and tbh it's on par with iA Writter and it's temporarily free (in beta). I wouldn't stress about the tool, just go for it.

  • Posted to End of Year Goals, Dec 02, 2014

    I guess I'm against the grain since I tend to set yearly goals in June/July because that's when I'm most productive, but anyway here they are:

    1. Being more active [started cycling, running, hiking + getting ready for a long touring trip]

    2. Learning basic frontend [html, css, and a bit javascript so far, but I already started to notice a huge difference when chatting to the team and looking at problems]

    3. Be a good PM/person [be nice, always have a laugh, ignore mistakes, focus on results and process, speak to clients/people a lot even when you don't want to]

    4. go on 4 trips per year [1 down 3 to go but I've got a feeling I might fail this one]

    5. Learning basic design principles [got started with Design+Code, but haven't got to where I want to be yet, got 6months to turn this around]

    6. Launch a physical product [finished the design, built 2 prototypes, got some feedback...now I just need to develop it further, create the landing page, and start shouting about it]
