It’s been a while since the last update. I fell into one of those cycles where I was always convincing myself I’d post an update just as soon as I made some more progress on the next feature.

Progress Recap
- got a repeatable debian packaging process setup for the server side agent
- setup a apt repo on S3 to make the packages available “apt-get”
- created a shell script to automate all the steps in the server side install process
- working cross platform desktop client using the Chromium Embedded Framework
- new security and authentication strategy for the client and server components

GUI Client Developer Preview on GitHub

As promised the first developer preview release of the GUI client is on GitHub. As expected its pretty barebones right now and only suited for developers interested in kicking the tires and poking around the architecture. More…

Lots of goodies in this update! Before getting to those I have one quick housekeeping note.

I’m moving away from the weekly goal setting concept. It seems to work great when the goals fall into the right sweet spot of available time and smooth development. But outside of that narrow window it ends up creating un-needed stress and pressure.

Onto the goodies! More…

I hope everyones September is off to a great start! This update is a few days behind as things on the work front have been pretty hectic lately.

I had a chance to make some progress this weekend and I’m getting close to having the edit/delete functionality for the server list complete. I also managed to add a bunch of unit tests over the weekend for the Server data model and localStorage interactions. More…

I ended up falling short on last week’s goals. Although on the bright side I got the local storage implementation working which was a big win. I also made some good progress on the gauges.

Hey everyone, I hope your August is off to a great start! I was bummed I didn’t get a chance to post a July update. Unfortunately I didn’t get to make as much progress as I was hoping in July.

I changed jobs and that whole process ended up consuming quite a lot of time and energy in July. Happily I’m now at a better place with more flexible hours! More…
