It's been a while since I posted but I promise I have some good excuses. I got married (!), went to the Dominican Republic with my beautiful new wife, and took some additional time off to work on my golf game :P While my golf isn't anything to write home about, I'm definitely excited to get back to work. It feels good to have recharged batteries!
I'm happy to report that the number of ePortfolio downloads has steadily increased since we last spoke. Sales are sluggish but I am still encouraged. We've got some great feedback that will keep things going in the right direction. First and foremost is implementing a full-fledged WYSIWYG. It seems like an obvious missing feature in hindsight. Here's a link to a Stack Overflow post that lists the most important features of a content management system.
Finally, I'm going to try write about some of the more interesting articles related to this blog's content. I'll start off with an author my co-workers are probably sick of hearing me quote. Joel Spolsky, of Fog Creek Software, started writing a blog back in the early 2000's called joelonsoftware.com. One article that I've used in real life countless times is the Joel's guide to hiring. I love it. I don't copy his process word-for-word but the high level objectives are spot on. This is highly recommended reading for technical people responsible for participating in the hiring process.
