So it has been ages since I had a blog. I used to blog on the Netsight blog whilst I was there, but I’ve been up a lot of exciting things since then and needed somewhere to start posting interesting stuff I’ve been working on. So this is it :)
For 15 years I’ve been working on some pretty heavy duty Python-based web systems and content management systems such as Plone. So I thought I’d try something very different. I wanted something extremely lightweight that would allow me to just do some very simple blogging and have a presence online.
So some topics I will be blogging about here:
Python web development.
Python is still my ‘go to’ language for any web development or server scripting and integration jobs
iOS deployment and development
I’m currently working on a team doing iOS development, and I’ve managed to do a lot of battle with Apple’s, often arcane, provisioning system.
Networking & Security
I’m interested in getting data from A to B in a reliable and secure fashion
FreeBSD / OpenBSD
In my opinion, two of the best operating systems around. I’ve been working with them for nearly two decades now and both have their uses in different scenarios.
Quantified health, wearables and tracking
I’m currently working with enquos, building the best tools out there to track, measure and improve your health, fitness and wellbeing. I’ve developed a personal interest in this, as I’m currently working on improving my own health.
Embedded Development / Internet of Things
I like tinkering with Arduinos and the likes, so will probably be writing up some of the stuff I’ve been using them for here. We are moving to an ever-more connected world, and it’s exciting looking at how this interacts with our society and the way in which we deal with data (privacy and security).
