Recently I assisted with a very large server migration to an auto-scaling AWS architecture. Whilst my role was primarily in a project management capacity I learnt a lot about the services available in AWS and the procedure for deploying code to an auto-scaling set up. I also assisted with the SEO work involved with the migration, although this wasn't particularly new territory.

Last weekend I spoke at WordCamp Bristol about GDPR. I'm quite new to public speaking and so this was a bigger event for me! But people seemed to find it informative and interesting! It certainly provoked lots of questions and discussed afterwards.

In September 2016 I had my first experience of (proper) public speaking, as
I spoke at Bytes Conference in Brighton. My talk was titled "Regulation and
Privacy: What's the come?" and I discussed practical ways web developers
can prepare for thje GDPR. Doing this talk also meant I had to swot up on
the GDPR and online privacy!

Lately I've been investigating and writing about the EU's new ODR service.

Over the last few weeks I've been helping various clients track campaign success through tagged URLs. I've suggested Google Analytic's URL builder, bit.ly and bananatag.com where appropriate. The latter is a tool that's great for when you're sending individual companies sales emails and you want to know who's clicked on which links.
