Brunei Geek Meet : Webhooking around

This month we held the meetup at iCentre thanks to the folks at DARe!

Topic of the month was webhooks with and some interesting links for the night

For the #fixBruneiWebsites session, I took a look at the Telbru website that I mentioned in this tweet having weird horizontal scroll behaviour

That seemed to be fixed with a max-width: 100% definition. Full write up of investigation and ways to check and fix it to come soon!

We saw a couple of new facings and a couple old ones but it was a great time! On to next month as we finish end off the year! 🚀

“Is that a Vagrant in your Computer?” and “Computer Whaling” (Using Vagrant/Docker to set up your environment)

This is essentially an intro to Vagrant and an intro to Docker slide decks combined into one. These slides were prepared for GDG DevFest 2014 but was cancelled last minute. Best not let the slides go to waste.
