Link Dump

Image Carousel using Twitter Bootstrap and Orchard CMS Projections

This looks like it'll give me the solution I'm after to "beautify" the home page of my site slightly. At the moment it's a fairly raw page that contains a list of the most recent posts from my techy blog and from my recipes blog. A little bit of active curation of the content will go a long way to making it more appealing. The post *is* from 2012, but I've had it sat in an open tab for a wee while so will feed back if it proves to work!

Git Immersion

This is another one that I've had sat in a tab for a while, if memory serves because I saw the link either on Twitter from someone who's reputation I respect (ergo things they reference are worthy of a look!) or a blog. Either way, becoming more familiar with the ins and outs of the way Git works is something I need to do. I know enough to (just about!) get by using the UI via GitHub on the web and GitHub Desktop, but understanding the "what", the "why" and the "how" behind something helps me to join the dots and make the most of a technology. Source Control, whilst something that ideally fades into the background, is no exception!

About Rob

I've been interested in computing since the day my Dad purchased his first business PC (an Amstrad PC 1640 for anyone interested) which introduced me to MS-DOS batch programming and BASIC.

My skillset has matured somewhat since then, which you'll probably see from the posts here. You can read a bit more about me on the about page of the site, or check out some of the other posts on my areas of interest.
