wendy 0 Comments General, Web Development

I am a bit mad about maps. Especially the online, interactive ones. When I heard about the OS (Ordnance Survey, rather than operating system!) open data Masterclass, I signed up for it immediately, very curious to see how OS data could fit in with online mapping applications.

Responsive Day Out - The Final Breakpoint - First slide of the conference

Last Friday saw another Responsive Conference take place at the Dome in Brighton. I had previously heard a lot about the conference, this being the third and (I believe) final outing I was thrilled that we managed to secure some tickets for myself and a selection of the Zoocha team members.

Here are a few things I’ve learned along the way:

VOES

Back in 2008, an EU law changed affecting the calculation of Value Added Taxes (VAT) on broadcasting, telecommunications and e-services (collectively called ‘VAT on electronic services’ or VOES for short!).

These changes come into force on 1st January 2015 - the delay being due to resistance from EU member states (and I dare say lobbying from corporations) protecting their interests.

Steps to a Successful Drupal Project

will 0 Comments Drupal, General

For anyone building a website or web application, Drupal promises loads. You will hear Drupal evangelists (like us) talk about the benefits of open source, zero licence fees, portability, scalability, flexibility and ease of integration with other systems. This is all true, so why do some organisations wrestle with Drupal, getting frustrated, confused and disillusioned?
