Dave has been working in the IT industry since forever, starting with payroll development and ERP consultancy for large corporates. He is a keen traveller, photographer and motorsport enthusiast, but now puts family first as he’s in love with his two little boys. Dave’s job title is “Director” which in a small company is another way of saying that he does all the things that developers hate to do, like account management, sales and so on. He’s usually complaining about being busy and has heard of “inbox zero” but believes it to be little more than a concept.

We’re proud to announce the winners of our WordCamp London 2013 code challenge!

Yesterday marked the tenth anniversary of WordPress’s first release on May 27th, 2003 – a happy creation that led to a lot of new blogs, businesses and services.

We sponsor and support Creative Process, a small, but friendly and fun evening that’s held at Elevator Bar in Liverpool. The Liverpool web and creative industry were out in force at last night’s event.

In certain cases, when you migrate WordPress content from one site to another, you have to create 301 redirects. Here are some thoughts from a recent site migration…

Migrations from WordPress.com used to be pretty trivial. But just recently we’ve bumped into an issue that makes it impossible to do it right. Hopefully we’ll find a solution to this very soon.
