  1. Hi, would it be possible to add a link to the tech forum from the navigation of this blog? At the moment, I scroll down to this post to find the link. But as this post gets older and older, that’s going to just become a pain.
    Also, it’d be useful for any new developers who come across the blog to discover the tech forum easily.

      Hi Luke, thanks a lot for the suggestion. We’ve added a link to the forum into the primary Nav, as well as another link in the header so that should help. Cheers, Stephen.
