Ryan explains why it’s the future and shares his research of early adopters and an overview of the technologies you can use to progressively enhance web apps today.
As always, we’ve been busy bees. Dave has build a progressive web app to see his Monzo transactions, Rachael has been learning modern calligraphy and there’s some more tech for good (and bad?!).
New year, new frontend build. Dave explains why we moved away from JSPM, and how we used Rollup to simplify our new build.
Our placement student from QMUL has been busy creating a Slackbot for the team to manage their holidays. This post explains how he did it.
Our monthly round up of what we’re up to in our own time. Ryan has been reading about, and immersing himself in virtual reality… Rachael has been watching telly… and there’s a quick-fire round of facts.
