Well, there was progress

Friday, 23 December 2011
OK, so I got the gear groups working, I think. Other than that I've been busy for the last couple months, so... yay?

Really want to make progress, but there's just so much to do and so little time I really want to spend coding. I'll get a little more done in the new year, I think, as the projects wind down and the suits figure out what they want to get done next year.

Progress has been so disparate that I can almost never remember what I was working on last. Honestly, while I have a 90% working calendar I don't really know how I'm going to incorporate it into the website. I built it mirroring the stand-alone site I've been using for 4 years, but just with all the features I wanted to include here. Should be interesting.

Well, another year down. Let's shoot for some wild speculation: fully functioning site in 2013? Ha ha! That's a laugh...

slightly more progress

Finally have some time to keep working since we're between major projects right now. The calendar is coming along nicely, functionality wise, and now the last bits to be cleared up are adding gear to event components, gear groups, and some customization options.

The code is much cleaner now, but it doesn't quite fit with the object oriented code of the rest of the site. I guess some exceptions wll have to be made for ajax, but it works as a standalone piece. Once I finish it up, I'll work on refactoring it.

After the calendar/log I need to get the gallery and image system working to get the customization where I want it. After that will be a slight redesign and css update for full screen and mobile.

Guestimated timeline: I could probably have the calendar integrated by New Years and the rest depends on the work schedule.

For tri-it-all, I'll look into a ready-made platform like drupal. I definitely want to make that happen, even if it ends up a failure, because "you never know" and if I end up making money on it I win. :-)

Less progress

I haven't really touched the core code on here since January. What I have been working on is the updated calendar. It will feature more custom options than I had thought of previously: bike builds (keep track of wear on individual components like the tires, chain, and cassette), event types (select a 5k, you get a 3.1 mile run; select an ironman, you get a 2.1 mile swim, t1, 112 mile bike, t2, and a 26.2 mile run), and a better organized interface among other things.

I don't have a lot of time to work on this as the new job keeps me busy constantly and I've barely had a weekend to use, but I'll keep plugging away at it. Pretty sure I'll have the calendar before the gallery at this point. Hopefully I'll work out how to make it all interconnect soon.
