Site updates (and some personal news)
phpFlickrSynch • theSCRUM
The challenge when being stuck in a medical center for several weeks (I should say months now…) is to find ways to spend free time. I’m currently busy five hours per day doing reeducation work; so there’s room to do other activities! I listed all the initiatives I had started but never finished because of lack of time, and since then have tried to complete them. Some of them are related to this site:
- I’ve done a lot of code clean-up, and small adjustments to the design and features of this site. Most of them are for my own vanity, as I’m not sure you fellow readers will really be able to spot them :)
- In the past 2 years, I have written quite a lot of PHP code to manage the photo collection on this site. While the photos themselves are hosted on Flickr, all the metadata are retrieved using the Flickr API and stored locally for easier usage. I have now open-sourced all this code and packaged it under the name phpFlickrSynch.
- I’ve also released a new version of theSCRUM, my home made solution for agile teams; and I’m happy seeing some interesting discussions on the forum.
- Last but not least, for my french readers who like to travel, I’ve started writing the diaries of my (not so recent anymore) trips. Argentina and Bali are done, New Zealand and Costa Rica are in progress.
