Site rebuild and CV

The G3D Development site was created using my own framework a little under three year ago, at the time I was working on getting the newest version of my framework ready for release.  I moth balled my framework some time ago, it was hindering Dlayer development and since I’ve been using the Zend Framework for a number of years there didn’t see much point continuing with the development.

I’m working on building a MySQL Form Builder which will be included within the content module of Dlayer. The Form Builder will be a MySQL based version of the XML Form Builder that I developed and showcased on my site in 2009. I’m developing the Form Builder as a stand alone module which I will later incorporate into Dlayer.I’ve been planning on rebuilding my site ever since I decided to moth ball my framework, I wanted to change the focus of the website and it is starting to look a little tired design wise.Given all the above I’ve decided to rebuild my site using the Zend Framework, I’ll also be able to alter the focus of the site, update the design and include a couple of the projects I am working on.

The new site will still include code but the focus will move towards the Zend Framework, I’ll be publishing action helpers, view helper, general library classes and mini tutorials, the new site will also include my MySQL Form Builder.

I’ve been contracting for a number of years now and after finishing each contract I update my CV, that is getting harder and harder to do, the main reason being that more often than not I can’t showcase what I’ve been working on, I’m either under NDA or the application is private or on the companies intranet.

To combat this I will be opening up the Form Builder on my new site for viewers to use/review and I am also going to develop a shop to showcase what I am capable of developing. It’s been three years since I’ve developed a shop from scratch so I am not too sure how long it will take, once the site and Form Builder are up an running the shop is the next item on the agenda.
