Genstatic, my first sip of coffee

by Pascal Opitz on March 6, 06:16

Having to spend more time at home means I can try out things. I know I'm late to the party, but I really wanted to have a go at using coffeescript. Sceptical at first, I really got to like it and quickly threw together a little static site generator: Genstatic.

Finding a Software Development Company in London

With all our focus on technology, programming and coding you may be wondering how you can put some of the things we share into practise if you aren't a programmer yourself. Well, you wouldn't be alone and the short answer is you will need to hire a software development company to carry out the works for you. The only thing is that this ins't always so simple, finding the right one can be tricky. Heck even knowing what type of agency you need can be tricky. Do you need a web application development company or a mobile app one? Fortunately the best companies tend to offer the lot, and have experts ready and willing to help define what work you will need to carry out after hearing about your specific goals and requirements. In general I'd say avoid looking for the cheapest company. Cutting budgets early usually means a less-than-perfect finished product, which will cost you 10X more in the long term. Also, seek references to ensure you hire the right team for the job.
