In Love with a Dashboard

There was a bit of a to-do on Twitter recently about the Umbraco dashboard.

Genius.

Skriftmas 2016: A New Tradition of Giving Back

We here at Skrift are huge advocates of diversity in the workplace, especially in the tech world, since that’s the realm affecting our professional lives. 

As this time of year is a season of giving, we’ve decided to begin what we hope is a new tradition. As we can only do so much ourselves, each year we would like to pick a charity to support. We hope you'll join us in kicking off this new tradition of giving back to organizations who help to promote and raise awareness about diversity issues around the world.
