In December we released MetaKnight — a search-engine-optimization (SEO) plugin for our go-to CMS Kirby. Let’s tell you all about it.

For those of you without any knowledge in this field, let’s start with a (really) short introduction to Kirby:

Kirby is a wonderful piece of software, that makes it easy for our clients to create, manage and update content on websites (CMS). But it does not do search engine optimisation out-of-the-box.

The story behind the Vision Implementation Canvas

Last month we made one of our in-house tools, the Vision Implementation Canvas, available to everyone—this week we’ll share the story behind it.

We switched our entire development setup to nanobox.io and we’re not looking back. Here’s why.

Hi, my name is Jonathan and I have been with diesdas.digital as a freelance front-end developer for the past 6 months. This week I am taking over the reigns from Harry to write a post about what I have been working on for the past three weeks.
