Ringing your doorbell on your Sonos speakers Ding dong!!! Earlier this week, I changed my old doorbell to the Eufy video doorbell.

How to use Cypress to test your SharePoint solution with an Azure AD-secured API In January 2020, I explained my approach to how you can make use of Cypress to test out your SharePoint solutions.

For many of us, working from home is mandatory these days. For me, nothing major changed. I was already used to work from home since I joined Valo 2,5 years ago. One thing that has changed is that my children are now at home while I am working. Luckily I was prepared for it (I thought).
