About CyberMat
Work-related things I do and don't do

I've been an independent web developer since 2003 specialising in bespoke online data systems. I procure, provision set-up and manage servers, design data architecture, develop server side applications and their corresponding client-side views.

For me, everything starts with data - capturing it, processing it, analysing it and publishing what it all means. The structure of data forms the blueprint of input mechanisms – eg forms and APIs, as well as views – reports, pages, app frontends.

The main technologies I use in my own projects are...

Server side / backend

Server management / Debian/Raspbian
Nginx
PHP
MySQL / MariaDB
Node & sockets

Client side / front end

HTML
CSS
JavaScript / jQuery
Semantic / Fomantic UI

Deployment
Security, server management

SVN - Version Control
rsync - for secure transfer of data and files between data centres

Other

Stripe integration
SEO & performance analysis
Mandrill (MailChimp’s email delivery API)

Things I don't work with very often

Open Source CMS, (WordPress etc)
Angular/TypeScript
Ember/React
Python

Revision 5243

Probably not the best place to test a new core component, but hey - I’m busy during the day, and only this website will be effected.

18:54 - Definitely time

I’m not sure booze and blood pressure meds are the best combo, so I’ll need to keep an eye on things

Thursday, 17:45 - time for pizza

The White Swan in Exning doesn’t offer much in the way real ale, but it’s too cold and wet to stand around chatting with Sandro.

Midnight Sun 26 Nov

I think this might be my highest post to date

In Cambridge

I think a quick stop into M&S was the only reason for today’s trip

A weekend in Great Yarmouth

A Banksy, a Weatherspoons and a wander round some dereliction.

Tired of white space

I think it's time for a radical layout change. Time for some Blog Roll!
