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).
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…
