My passion is in development for the publishing and broadcast industries (surprise), from elaborate web front-ends for publishing houses, through eBook development for Kindle and otherwise, to subscription and business management systems for magazines and other print publications. I love talking to legacy 1980s databases and forcing them to give up their data to the modern, open world. API integration between various modern cloud services is another favourite playground.
I’ve developed turnkey systems based on open-source components to allow community radio stations to provide thousands of hours of automated online streams of their on-air content with next-to-no ongoing cost, with no client intervention required from audio capture through compression, upload and end-user delivery.
I built this site using an overly elaborate static HTML generating chain, because I was bored. It was fun, and sometimes you just don’t need a database, you know? Let me know if anything’s broken.
