The new weierophinney.net/matthew/ site is now up and running!
The site has been many months in planning, and about a month or so in actual coding. I have written the site in, instead of flatfiles, PHP, so as to:
- Allow easier updating (it includes its own content management system)
- Include a blog for my web development and IT interests
- Allow site searching (everything is an article or download)
I've written it using a strict MVC model, which means that I have libraries for accessing and manipulating the database; all displays are template driven (meaning I can create them with plain-old HTML); and I can create customizable applications out of various controller libraries. I've called this concoction Dragonfly.
There will be more developments coming — sitewide search comes to mind, as well as RSS feeds for the blog and downloads.
