Welcome back to Happy Porch Radio, season 2.
Nicholas shares his story and that of Rhythm Agency.
Amongst many other topics we talk about the Umbraco form builder package he created – Formulate – and how the agency supported him in the development of this open source project.
It is really fascinating to learn about both his interaction with the wider Umbraco/open source community and the interaction of the Agency as a whole.

- How Nicholas mustered up the momentum to get a viable package up and running years earlier than he expected.
- A quick rundown of how to use Formulate (it’s simple to use, it only takes a minute to explain).
- Nicholas’ motivation for spending so much time and energy thinking about Umbraco (it’s not because of the easy content entry).
- Tricky question to ponder on: How many Umbraco sites do you have to work on to be considered an Umbraco developer?
