Rationale for this Project


Summary of Progress during April – June 2016
  1. This project retained its prominence, absorbing nearly half of my project time, though the vast majority of this was not for my own website. The bulk of the effort was expended on the development of a website for Pete’s PhD, which will preoccupy me for the next quarter as well.
  2. A continuing disappointment was that I didn’t pursue my web-training with Sitepoint, despite having – in anticipation – extended my membership for another couple of years. I have, however, grabbed all the eBooks in their library, though haven’t catalogued them all yet.
  3. During 2Q16 I expended 308 hours on this project (785 hours YTD, where for “YTD” – Year to Date – I mean the academic year that commenced in October 2015). That’s 158% of planned effort, 125% YTD. Overall, 47% of my project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this Project (making 40% YTD) – as against 29% planned (31% YTD).

Plans for the Near Future

I’ve reduced the planned weekly effort on this project slightly to 14 hours, to accommodate the distraction of Becky’s wedding. Given that activity on Pete’s PhD project, and the general overhead of work for Bridge clubs, work for my own site is unlikely to get much of a look-in at the moment. To avoid too long a straggle of items on this report, I’ve created a document9 listing outstanding items10, together with those completed since the document was created. As a result, only the more important11 items likely to be addressed shortly appear below.
Summary of Progress to Date

This is hived off to a separate13 document14. A summary of time expended across the years developing my website15 is at "Software Development - Website - Development".

Footnote 7: Footnote 10: This hasn’t been updated since the end of last year, but hasn’t needed to change much.

Footnote 11: This list has, however, got too long!

Footnote 12: Footnote 13: Footnote 15: As distinct from developing other peoples’ websites – time which is also recorded against this project, but not against this task.
