Grandparents can Code

The Internet and digital technologies are becoming increasingly important in more and more areas of everyday life. How can we ensure the participation of older members of society in the current digital transformation? For everyone to benefit from these technologies, it will take more than the ability to download apps to smartphones or transfer money via online banking.

The Digital Cloud with a Silver Lining

Our Digital Society is developing faster than current infrastructures can adapt or respond. Added to the technological changes that confront us, is our extended life expectancy. Older professionals have never had a tougher time finding a job – especially in areas where, until recently, no education paths have been defined (UX and UI being two […]

Quo Vadis WordPress

Last quarter we relaunched four websites in three CMS. The quickest was of course produced (mostly on a train with wonky wlan) in WordPress. I say of course because a WordPress website is simple to build and maintain, normally works for every occasion, and is very cheap to produce.  WordPress sites are ubiquitous, much like plain […]

Live Longer and Healthier – Read!

It has been a really hectic month, and for the first time in many years I seem to be at a loss for words. Normally a river of wordage, wanted or not, I write and verbiate at will. This week, however, I became really stuck putting together a project plan. Of the 18 hours I […]

New Year, New Resolutions

Another year and another chance to do everything right. Chances are we will stick to our new years resolutions as long as the bubbles last in the bottle of champagne we opened on New Year’s Day. We shouldn’t let that get us down. Certainly looking back over the year we can pat ourselves on the […]

Buzzwords and our Digital Discourse

If you are like me, and started work in the pre-digital years, you are probably wondering how we managed to work without all the buzzwords. It was a simpler time.  We had bandwidth to work through our task cycles with our IBM compatible PC, tackling those low hanging fruit to improve the bottom line – […]

See Jack Code. See Jane Code. Code Kids Code!

We are moving soon to another state; one which has Latin in the school curriculum. Our son is quite good with languages, already speaking English, German, and Russian – but he is a bit worried about Latin (“Where do they speak Latin?”). No one would disagree that Education is good, but we could argue about what an […]

To Code or Not to Code …

You don’t need a degree in Computer Science to code.  In fact, some of the better coders out there have degrees in literature and languages.  It’s never too late to learn code – and learning, just like any language, makes you literate – and adds another skill that might just translate into earnings. Computational thinking can aid problem […]
