Welcome to my blog!!

There's nothing to see so far - just me giving it a quick tests to ensure it works the way I want it to.

I initially wanted to have the two sites working in the same space, it it turned out I was spending a bit too much time retrofitting the code across, so I simply stood up a sub domain, built it up there, and called it a day.

Now I can start working on the really fun stuff!

Some fun projects -
  • I need to work on a backup procedure for my post. I selected this particular engine because of its performance. But since I'm not actually running an enterprise setup here, I'll need to work out a process to preserve the content.

  • I've already built a base Web API for controlling my Flickr feed to this website. What I'd like to do is add a new API that will serve as an ETL manager from the Flickr API to a yet-to-be-created SQL Server database.  The goal is to create a report engine where I can search Flickr images by the available EXIF data.

  • I need to work out a method of limiting the image size when I post.  I may simply set up a selection process that accesses my Flickr feed.

  • I'll want to re-introduce my image gallery at some point. The API is up, so I need to finish building up the gallery site. This time, I'll build it using MVC 5 so it matches the rest of the site infrastructure.
I think that's enough to get started this week!
