My latest project: Chinatown Today

It has been forever since I updated this blog. Like many freelance Web-developers, I am so busy building sites for other people that I do not spend enough time working on my own little corner of the Web. Sorry about that.

This past year, all of my spare time has been devoted to a single project: Chinatown Today. I wanted to build a platform to relay all the voices in the community, using as many of my skills as possible.
After a few months of running a Chinatown blog on my own, I was soon joined by a whole team of volunteers.

Please have a look at the current version of the project, which grew far beyond what I hoped.

From a technical point of view, it was a crash course in WordPress programming, trying to catch up with lead programmer Victor Temprano.

I used my PHP and aggregation skills to develop a Chinatown-specific Instagram-crawler which I use to fuel our daily Instagram Selection.

This is an ongoing project, which is sure to evolve over time. I am proud to be a part of it.
