I know this is super geeky, and I am meant to be on holiday and not thinking about work but….
Provoke have been working on the Fly Buys website for the last wee while and it has finally gone live! Check it out - look at what some of the smart cookies that work at Provoke […]
Day one is now over and I am pausing to “reflect” on how it went (that’s one crossed off the list already!)
Control distractions - relatively successful I would say - 5/10. Room for improvement but still started something and it was surprisingly liberating letting people know in a polite way that I was concentrating on […]

I am sure that I read somewhere years ago that software development was like building a house. You get an architect to design it based on your needs (2, 3 or 4 bedrooms, lounge here, indoor outdoor flow etc…). At this stage you can be agile, change things around to suit you better, change your mind […]
So I thought that this blogging stuff was going to be easy. I came home from Tech Ed and John said “why don’t you start a blog?” To which I replied - that’s a great idea! Being the quick-start that I am I wanted to start right away - no no no - that’s not […]
