Boo!v02

bv02 is a creative agency full of creative folk. Is it any wonder that we love Halloween so much? This year, we had our best turnout yet for costumes.

The human embodiment of sriracha brought a spicy flavour into our lives and even Lucas’…

In the evolution of television resolution, we have seen some incremental jumps in recent years, where standard definition (SD) got replaced by high definition (HD). A significant jump in picture quality that had millions of people upgrading their televisions. Right now, we are on the fringe of seeing another jump in display resolution. 4K video, often referred…

Wrapping up the 2014 North American Sitecore Symposium

Sep182014
In recent years Sitecore has held its symposium as a biennial event every second year. I’m sure everyone would love to make it an annual event but after attending I could see how much effort was expended in planning the event – A lot! The Sitecore community has continued to grow and it’s just not feasible for Sitecore to hold an event of this scale on a yearly…

Aug012014
“It’s all about the power of individual ideas and uniting a crowd behind them. I think academics have this limitless capacity for amazing ideas, innovation, discovery – but what they lack is a crowd of supporters and engaged citizens to fund and promote their work. Crowdfunding makes that a possibility. We just need a few brave and creative souls to try…

Jul312014
Here’s a simple fix that will improve usability for site administrators, customers and potential employees, for one of the most commonly implemented modules in Sitecore, Web Forms for Marketers (WFFM).
