Welcome to Jamesstoddern.net
Welcome to my Blog, where you will be able to find all of my ramblings, development tips, photographs and the music I write.
Content, Content and more Content
I used to have blogs all over the place, some in Wordpress, one in Joomla, a couple of old ones in Blogger and then there were all the photo sites as well. As you can imagine, trying to manage all this content can be a pain. I thought about consolidating everything down into one WordPress blog, or something else. However, I found that there is not one single product that will do everything I want it to do, not one single product that I can get to look the way I want it. So I thought, "hang on a minute, what do you do for a living James? A software developer" - ah, lightbulb moment - why the hell don't I just write something to do what I want it to do!
...So what you are looking at is a simple Blog with a bespoke CMS at the back-end, written in CodeIgniter. Nice and simple, small server footprint and maximum performance.
