New year, new chapter

MarzeeLabs news

2019 has just started and we are already full of hopes and goals for this new year.

December was a busy month for us at MarzeeLabs and we are ready to start a new chapter.

To start 2019, we have moved MarzeeLabs legal entity from Spain to Portugal. For a few years now, our team has been operating mainly from Portugal.

Seeking to create awareness and foster action around food waste, Re-seed makes possible for social organisations to create an online hub to facilitate distribution, inventory of goods and to provide authenticity and reachability to the whole process.

We have also delivered a new website for one of our longterm clients, the Branded Entertainment Network (BEN). We used the new WordPress editor, Gutenberg, and delivered a rebranding for BEN's website -

Shared by João Belchior - Ah, WordPress. If you hadn't heard of it by reputation, it sounds pretty good: one platform where you can build a blog, an e-commerce site, an app, or some combination of all of the above.

Static sites are a relic of the past originally introduced before CMSs took over the web. Today, they enjoy a successful reincarnation with static-site generators and modern frameworks such as React, Vue and Angular.

Shared by Peter Vanhee - Historically, GitHub always offered free accounts but the caveat was that your code had to be public. To get private repositories, you had to pay. Starting tomorrow, that limitation is gone. Free GitHub users now get unlimited private projects with up to three collaborators.

The world of frontend development moves fast. Very fast. This article will recap the most important frontend news, notable events, and trends in JavaScript for 2018.

In the case of most websites, traditional CMS systems out there tend to do the job just fine. It becomes trickier when you have to ship the same content to different products running on different platforms using different technology stacks.

Configuration management is an important feature of any modern content management system. Those following modern development best-practices use a development workflow that involves some sort of development and staging environment that is separate from the production environment.

The Register published an article right before Christmas 2018. It had a somewhat provocative title, and somehow it ended up in my inbox from a few different sources.
