Build desktop sites for desktop users

In the last couple of years, we, the web community, have tried hard to distill the basics of responsive design into an easily consumable framework, making it easy for everyone to use and adapt. I say we’ve been successful here. Many large consumer websites have refactored and adopted responsive design in 2015 and beyond. But […]

AMPlifying the web

I’ve seen a decent amount of open questions and controversy around the recently announced AMP project, a joint-effort by many publishers and platforms to improve the user experience of news and media sites. It all mostly boils down to how early we are in the lifecycle of AMP: There simply isn’t enough public documentation up […]

There and Back Again

Aaaaand we’re back. In San Francisco, that is. I’ve also taken the move and life change as opportunity to cut ties with the web and switch my focus entirely to native Android development. That whole “web” fad just isn’t going anywhere. Kidding, kidding! :) I’m obviously still a Chromie and looking forward to all the […]

Zynga ⇾ Google, SFO ⇾ MUC

Today is my last day at Zynga. It’s been quite a ride! It all started by being acquihired to create the world’s first HTML5 game engine. I’m thankful for all the interesting relationships and opportunities. In the three years I’ve been with Zynga, I had a lot of hats on: I was a central technology […]

Some of you might heard about it already (especially the one’s connected on Facebook), but I didn’t want to make it public before it’s 100% official. Today we finally received our visa, after a months-long struggle that made us gipsies for almost two months (personal advice: Never quit your apartment contract before receiving the final […]

Is Android good yet?

Android-Jelly-Bean-Logo

Edit (Feb 26th 2013): Vilmos Ioo highlighted on a Twitter comment that defaults are a bad thing. I agree. This is why I reworded some of the language about Chrome below. My intent is to get everbody off the Android stock browser, not everybody exclusively onto Chrome. Nope. That is, at the very least, what […]

NerdyConcerts.com, or: When it doesn’t exist, create it

nc-150x150

I am really not sure how I got this done, but hey, here it is: Today, I am announcing the launch of my latest web project NerdyConcerts.com. If you’d like to read about web development, stop here. If you’re up for something completely unrelated, continue reading! Why nerdy concerts? As it turns out, I am […]

Gadget zombies

I love my cellphones and tablets. I thoroughly enjoy my Mac Mini, serving as a home entertainment server. I take my Kindle with me every time I’m travelling. I am definitely a gadget and technology enthusiast. I don’t have other eccentric costly hobbies – my spendings all go into technology. But recently, I have come […]
