Rationale for this Project


Summary of Progress during January – March 2017
  1. This project retained some of its prominence, more so than last quarter, and I almost achieved the effort planned.
  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, and this quarter managed to catalogue them all.
  3. Nat successfully completed the course put out by Harvard - "Harvard University - CS50 Introduction to Computer Science" - and has found it so inspirational that he’s managed to get a job in IT development. I’ve taken a look at it and made a start, but then stopped. I plan to take it seriously next quarter and to complete it by the end of the year (academic or calendar – to be decided!).
  4. I spent only 5 hours on my own site. Otherwise, effort was expended on “education” or on the other sites I support:-
    1. Provided some stats for "Mansell (Peter) - Bottom Up Reading of Acts".
    2. Updated Sophie Botros’s site with information on her new book.
    3. Created Master Point Lists & promotions for the ECBA website.
    4. Added new features (70s Club & Monthly Pairs Winners) to my “Small Bridge Websites”.
  5. During 1Q17 I expended 174 hours on this project (328 hours YTD, where for “YTD” – Year to Date – I mean the academic year that commenced in October 2016). That’s 97% of planned effort, 90% YTD. Overall, 25% of my project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this Project (making 25% YTD) – as against 29% planned (29% YTD).

Plans for the Near Future

I’ve increased the planned weekly effort on this project by an hour to 15 hours. My intention over the next 18 months is to reduce the amount of effort expended on other sites and focus on sorting out my own, together with updating my technical competence. Because I may change the technology of my site, I will treat it as substantially “on hold” until I’ve re-educated myself.

Summary of Progress to Date
