Back to web applications again

After years of trying to get a new company off the ground and consulting gigs, mostly focusing on GUI Swing development, I have started to pay attention to web application development again. But this time around, I’m interested in what can be done on the client-side. It’s amazing how much cool JavaScript code is available, and how well it works across modern browsers. Combined with public APIs for services, like the Google Maps API, it’s not all that hard to offer information to your site vistors that would have been far too complex or expensive just a few years ago.

To learn more about these technologies, I’ve set up a website¬†about Hermosa Beach, where I’ve lived since 1994. It contains information about the city and what’s going on, pictures, slideshows and reference lists with maps for hotels, restaurants, clubs, etc. It’s a work in progress and I’ll add more features as time permits. Check it out if you want to see what I’m up to nowadays.
