New Book - Nigel's Intranet Adventure

Available to pre-order now!

Published: Aug 29, 2020 by C.S. Rhymes

My new book, “Nigel’s Intranet Adventure” is now available to pre-order on Amazon Kindle and will be released on 7th September 2020.

This is the first fiction book I have released that I have been working on for a few years and I am proud to finally make it available.

Nigel worked in an office for a large sales company, his desk in the corner, out of the way of the busy hustle and bustle of the sales and marketing teams. His official job title was ‘Intranet Coordinator’, but most people in the office didn’t know what his job title was or what he actually did, just seeing him as the IT geek that sat in the corner. To be honest, Nigel didn’t know what his job was either…

Follow Nigel on an adventure that would change his life forever, all triggered by a chance encounter leading to a new friendship and a journey of technological wonder.

I have been tasked with building a new website using WordPress. The last time I used WordPress was a few years ago and involved using Advanced Custom Fields to build custom pages and layouts. Things have changed a lot over the years and now there is the built in Gutenberg editor, which uses blocks to create a custom layout and add content. The trouble was, there didn’t seem to be great support in Visual Studio Code for the blocks, as they use HTML comments.

Recently I had to write some tests for a piece of JavaScript code that used window.location. This left me trying to figure out how to mock the window.location so that I could pass in dummy data and ensure that the data I got back was what was expected. Here was how I managed to solve the issue.
