My name is Don, I am a Developer/Engineer/Designer
After the blog is done!
I have a couple sections to this site that I have in the works, like:
- Knowledge Base
Well, I had setup my server to run Java JSP & Servlet via Tomcat7 and Apache. It worked well enough and was amazingly fast, but had some issues. I was unable to find any real amount of up to date documentation or examples. It forced a certain amount of structure into your servlets that I didn't care for so much.
So, this leads me back to PHP for now. PHP 5.4 has made some great changes and speed improvements. I am excited to give some of the PHP features a try, since I am more than likely going to end up using PHP in the end.
Blogging coming soon!
I have been working on some SaaS projects lately and figured that I should start sharing some information about the design, why I am designing the software as I am, and why I would bother when there are solutions already available. However, I am currently developing my website using a framwork instead of using a pre canned CMS. This gives me some extra flexibility but also, takes a lot more time to have any new features or sections ready for use. I am going to need to develop myself a blogging section into my site. To be honest I do like the idea of developing my own software anyway.
Currently I am looking into making a very simple blog that does nothing more than allow for some WYSIWYG editing (which I am using now), Tags, Categories, and a Blog landing page and Article specific page views. I am not looking to recreate wordpress or blogger, just something simple for now and I will add other features later as time permits or as required.
I will keep this updated as I continue development though.
This is a simple test of the blogging system I am working on.
It is really being developed very slowly as other projects are demanding a lot of my time. :(
Featuring a TinyMCE editor with publishing dates and versioning. Along with a CDN media system built in.
