Starting again, somewhere new

No, not leaving the country this time 🙂 And also, not talking about one of my all-time favourite songs. Just some changes. Big changes. Bigger than last time I said this. End of an Era Starting the end of last month (Sept. 2018 that is), I’m no longer a “Space 48”-er. It was a difficult […]

Changes. Big Changes!

I’ll try to keep this short. So, a bit over 6 years ago I was knocking on a new door, having an interview for a “web developer” position. Got the job (phew!) and so an amazing journey started. I do remember we were a handful of people in a tiny office in Birchwood, Warrington.

Magento 2 API usage

Recently, in my day to day activities I had to figure something out with the Magento API. Magento 2 that is. Which is a beast, to say the least (hey! just made a rhyme!). Anyway, I posted the question  I had at the time in the Magento dedicated subsite on StackExchage in the hope that someone […]

Digital Business of the Year :: Space 48

I’ll start this one with saying what I always say when asked about my work: very proud to be part of the amazing team at Space 48, we’re making digital history there! 🙂 Joke aside now, recently we won a pretty important award in the North-West, an award that doesn’t recognises only one project of […]

Refresh the checkout success page in Magento

Something useful when working on the “checkout success” page in Magento, whether it’s just styling, implementing some tracking JS codes or whatever open up app/code/core/Mage/Checkout/controllers/OnepageController.php in your favourite editor (mine is PhpStorm, btw) and on line (approx, at least for Magento EE) 275 you’ll find the successAction() method. In there, comment out lines 278-281 286-291, so […]
