March 2018


In order to keep Datacentre and Client Software skills current, I am developing a modern web based application on my “bench” time. This employs a Linux Cloud Server, Nginx, PostgreSQL and Django (on Python 3.6); client side UI uses MaterializeCSS.

This project is currently undergoing early “Minimum Viable Product” development.
