Personal Projects

WordPress Portal Extensions (demo Sept 2018): I’m 90% complete developing a an extension for WordPress that provides functionality for education portals and intranets.

jsUplink ( A small JavaScript script with a backing Azure Function to lookup and replace ugly <a> links within pages.
Build primarily to service a new section to this site and release free for the world to use.
(First published 7 July 2018 with more features and enhancements to come, including favicon display. I’m also dogfooding it at

WhatsMyTime: Initial R&D prototype developed at Further development and a dedicated site with examples to come.

Connect ( This is a project 3 years and a handful of attempts in the making. Connect is my attempt to solve a personal problem: web bookmarks, information collection and notes in one space. Think of it as Chome bookmarks meet OneNote. In the past, I build a web app from the ground up using ASP.NET/Bootstrap/Auth0/Azure Storage/Azure websites. This time: WordPress, a bit of JavaScript and 1 Azure Function. It’s also the reason and testbed for my jsUplink project.
(7 July 2018: I’ve just managed to get the site up and some initial pages down. It’s ugly, it’s raw, it’s got a long way to go – please bear with me.)

29 August 2018: I’ll be leaving my day job on 7 September and spending a couple of months working on these projects.
