The old blog is gone (or rather went quite a while ago) due to a devops disaster. Apologies to anyone who was using any of the old posts for reference. I'm not going to be restoring the old posts as most of them are obsolete by now. If you need anything I probably have the old code samples so let me know.
This blog is now powered by GraphCMS which is a lot faster and cheaper than the old Worpress baced Rest API. I'll share some code on integrating it with Angular when I get a chance.
