First Post!

This is my first post! My name is Carl Rippon, I live in Nottingham in the UK and I’m currently the head of development for The Access Group. I’ve been working in the software industry for over 15 years now and thought it was about time I started sharing some of my thoughts and learnings on building single page applications and leading software teams.

I’ve been heavily using the SPA architecture in the last few years using ASP.NET on the backend and libraries / frameworks like jQuery, RequireJS and KendoUI on the front end. I’m really excited at future browser features like web components and ECMAScript 6 and 7! I’ve also been using agile methodologies such as scrum and keen to learn more about Kanban.

I hope you find this blog interesting and thought-provoking. Please feel free to comment and contribute to the articles – I don’t expect you to agree with everything I say!
