You can usually find me on Twitter. And you can sometimes find me at web development conferences, where I might be talking about development techniques. I blog here less frequently than I'd like, but manage it a little more often on the Netlify blog.

Wherever you find me, online or in the real world, please do come and say a friendly hello.

An explanation and short video demo of how to create your own opt-in UI for a private beta features of your site using Netlify features like branch deploys and split testing.

You could use this with any type of site you like, regardless of what tools or static site generator you used to create it. The example in the video was a site created with Hugo, but it could be anything. I also use it regularly with sites made with Gatsby or Eleventy.

Chatting on @radioverulam with my comedy buddy @leewilsoncomedy, and shouting about our upcoming @ItsHumdingers comedy night at @AbbeyTheatreStA.

Just a few tickets left for our last show of the year. With the excellent @MarcelLucont and support.

8 weeks of flitting about in various time zones and conferences with irregular sleep has been fine, and kinda fun. Adrenaline is a powerful drug!

But I’m home now. The adrenaline is gone. And I seem to have received a bill for ALL of my jet lag at once.

I’ll pop the kettle on.

Since posting this little example of user generated content in a #JAMstack site with #serverless fallbacks on @css, over 800 people have "made lollypop pages" 🍭

Some build stats:
- 800+ pages built by @eleven_ty: ~5.2s
