If you are a business that holds online information about individuals, then be prepared to potentially receive notifications from Google at any moment. Why? Well, an individual may be exercising their ‘Right to be forgotten’ for the first time, which has resulted into the removal of certain links to your website on Google’s search engine results pages (SERPs). Here, I recap the ruling, reveal how it will affect business leaders, and debate its significance for the future.
Marketing Week Live is the UK’s largest marketing event, hosted annually by the team behind Marketing Week magazine. Thousands from around the world flocked to the bustling Olympia Grand for this year’s packed two-day schedule of talks and workshops. Cyber-Duck was there to teach the crowds how a cutting-edge website designed around visitors’ needs can increase conversions and revenue.
On the Edge is a series of annual digital marketing conferences hosted all around the UK. An eager crowd gathered in Birmingham last week for insights about industry leaders’ areas of expertise. Our Production Director Matt Gibson was there to enlighten the audience on why the responsive web is important, how Cyber-Duck approaches it, and what’s in store for the future of design.
In early June, three ducks (including me!) travelled to Amsterdam for a day filled with advanced CSS goodness. CSS Day is an intensive one-day-only conference for web developers, running for the second year. It is organised by the same people behind the brilliant Mobilism conference: Peter-Paul Koch, Krijn Hoetmer, Stephen Hay and Martijn van Duuren. This was one of the best conferences I’ve ever attended, and I’ve recapped the highlights of the day here.
At Cyber-Duck, we pride ourselves on producing award-winning, responsive web solutions for our fantastic clients. We’re happy to announce that our re-design for Sparks Direct has been highly commended for the ‘Best Electrical Wholesaler Website’ at the Electrical Wholesaler Awards last month. The Sparks team were joined by leading suppliers and wholesalers in the electrical industry for the prestigious award ceremony, which took place at the Guoman Tower Hotel in London.
We were selected by UX London to deliver our “User experience design for the responsive web” and “Become a better UX designer through code” workshops at last week’s conference. On day one, eager participants were guided through a hands-on implementation of Cyber-Duck’s refined processes and insights to improve user experience techniques. On day two, we gave a lesson in coding a responsive website from scratch.
As part of Cyber-Duck’s R&D culture, we constantly evaluate emerging technology trends, to optimise our workflow and be prepared for the future. So, we developed Hoisin.scss, a simple, responsive mini framework, which standardises the work of our front-end team, while giving us full, creative control to tailor work to each project. Here, I will explain the process behind the framework’s creation, and the advantages it brings.
Yesterday, I was selected to present a case study for ‘Rackspace Unlocked: The Hybrid Cloud’ in London; this event is part of the Rackspace Academy, where experts are invited to help educate businesses and developers on how to make the most of cloud hosting solutions. My practical expertise on how to build the most effective payment portals in the Cloud became a crucial element of the eCommerce track; I’ve recapped the highlights of the conference here.
I’ve been wanting to break some of the negative myths surrounding CSS pre-processors for quite a while, so when I got the opportunity to speak at SXSWi 2014 in Austin, Texas, I knew this would be the perfect forum to do so. I also wanted to provide useful tips and techniques to get started, and reveal how this technology can help developers to vastly improve their efficiency when coding CSS.
