New Site New Focus

It’s been a while since I last posted anything and the site has been quite stale and out dated. So I thought I’d update it to a more modern responsive site that looks good on both desktop and mobile. As I wanted to focus more on actual writing and less on building a site I moved back to WordPress which is still the best blogging platform. My only concern is now security as php apps are much more prone to being hacked than Java ones.

With this new focus I’m also going to write about much more broad topics than just Liferay. As Liferay is moving it’s core towards OSGi I’ve studied it a lot and grown to love it although it doesn’t come without it’s own challenges especially for some moving to it from Java EE. As some of you may know I’ve been running and administering my own Linux servers for more than 15 years so some of the new topics will be about virtualization, containers, monitoring etc. I still read a lot of books so when I read one that deserves a mention I’ll write a book review. I hope you enjoy what’s to come.

As I built this new site I only migrated posts that had been read in the past year so if you run into something that’s no longer available do email me I still have them saved. Also all the old urls should be automatically redirected to the new ones.
