Weeknotes: 31 Jan

I’m going to try to start keeping weeknotes. It’s a good way to reflect on the past week, get into a regular habit of writing, and is a nice way of working in the open.

My past week has been pretty busy, in general January has been a pretty crazy start to the new decade with lots going on! Monday and Thursday in London for various client meetings in and around Westminster. We’re currently working with the University of Cambridge on a site for their Alumni magazine and a range of WordPress sites for Parliament.

Had an exciting potential new client call on Tuesday, more on that later!

Had a meeting for the Cambridge Film Trust. We’ve going through a lot of planning for the 2020 festival at present.

I took a look at how to multilingual properly in WordPress using a multisite approach. So far initial work is showing this is a far more sane way of doing it in WordPress. Our previous efforts had included tools such as WPML which we found can get into real difficulties once you start having more complex content.

We’re currently recruiting for a new web developer, so spent some time going through CVs and emails from candidates. It’s a pretty time consuming process, but essential to do properly to get the right people.

Ended the week with a board game night at work, where we played Dixit, a fantastic card game I’d not played before. One person plays the storyteller, chooses one of their cards (with beautiful imagery), picks a phrase, and everyone else has to choose which of their cards best fits. The idea is to guess which card is the storytellers. Will have to buy it for the family to play!
