Director of eCommerce – Leadership Responsibilities

December 21, 2017 Justin Bell

I first published this post back in 2010 because I had several clients ask who (what role) typically owns eCommerce, what organization they report to and what some of their key responsibilities are.

Sometimes referred to as feature toggles, feature flippers, or feature flags, these terms all represent the same idea. We’re just talking about the ability to turn things on and off. While this seems simple, it can be quite liberating when a team starts using this approach to reduce the friction of adding new features to […]

Clicking an email address link should open a program that allows you to send an email to that email address.

Five Things You Didn’t Know Google Chrome Could Do

September 22, 2017 Jeph Kryzak

The Chrome Developer Tools (DevTools for short) are a set of web authoring and debugging tools built into Google Chrome.

Spending endless hours in the elements panel with the “Inspect” feature has allowed me to experiment, test, […]
