For a limited time only: charlestonwx.com source code available on Github

I’ve made the charlestonwx.com source code available for the moment as I transition the site to a new codebase. Rest assured there is nothing remotely special about it beyond how I present the data (and slice up the Weather Underground feed, before their API was solid).

Big changes are coming for this site soon thanks in no small part to help from my @chswx data partners at Weather Data. I’m very excited, to say the least.

Working my happy butt off

As the silence on this blog indicates, I’m working my butt off — Steph and I have just moved back to Charleston where I’ve started my new job at BoomTown — it’s almost been a month already and it has flown. Everything there is as advertised and then some. BoomTown is a fast-growing place, too — since I joined up late last month, three new employees have come in. Very impressive stuff.

I also have some particularly exciting things coming down the weather pipeline…stay tuned for more details on that.

In the meantime, this post is more of an icebreaker but also a quick test of my switch to nginx and Varnish for forward caching. Let’s see how well this works…
