The 8th book Iv’e written to date for Syncfusion’s ever popular Succinctly eBook series, and the third one one Bootstrap.
As Bootstrap continually gets better and more feature rich, then there is a need to keep up to date with the latest offerings it provides.
In this book, I take you on a just over 100 page tour of what’s new, and what it can now do (Hint: Flexbox rules!!!) and show you how to produce some interesting layouts.
Best part about it all is it’s free!!!

Given that I’ve not written anything original for over a year and a half (More on that in another post) and given I had an hour to spare, I thought I’d quickly go over what I’ve been up to this weekend (Feb 2nd 2017).
As part of a new project I’m involved in, I needed to create a new CI/Build server, and since I’ve had a Dell C6100 sat in the server rack not been used to it’s full potential, I decided now was a good time to put it into use.

Can you believe it’s 3 years since I wrote my first eBook for the Syncfusion Succinctly series, back in January 2013 Syncfusion released “GIS Succinctly”, I never really though it would go much further than that because I really didn’t believe I had that much to offer as a technical writer.

I’ve been using Postgresql for years now, those who know me, know fine well that it’s my absolute favorite database in the whole wide world. Those who know me may also recall I do a lot of GIS and mapping work using Spatial SQL among other things.

Unfortunately my responses where too long for the post to go on the Syncfusion Blog, so they had to be shortened.
Beacuse of that, I’m reproducing the full unedited version here for those who’d like to read it

I recently got asked what HTML5 validation looks like.
Needless to say this was a bit of a strange question, but as I read on through the question, I realized that is wasn’t a case of not knowing what HTML5 validation looks like, but a case of where jQuery validation stopped and the HTML5 stuff started.
In this quick post, I’m going to briefly cover the HTML5 validation stuff in the hopes it’ll clear a few things up.

As I sit here on Christmas eve, and look over what I’ve done this year I realize I’ve not blogged anywhere near as much as I said I would. Beacuse of this, I’m really going to try my best to blog at least once a month in 2014, and if I don’t then feel free to shout at me on twitter via @shawty_ds
So what have I learned this year…. well technology wise I’ve really got stuck back into using non .NET tools.
