Geek Raleighthe_side_project is my ongoing task to learn code. Since I don't primarily code for work, I learn through side projects. I take photos also and maybe one day will merge the two in some way.
A Little of This and ThatI'm a Python scripting, Django loving, CSS sniping, JQuery rigging, coder who wants to learn even more. This is where I try and put it.
Raleigh’s New Year’s Eve party on Fayetteville Street, called First Night, had a few rides set up. Since we planned to hit the NYE parties late I decided to run to downtown and get some footage of the ferris wheel and “big drop ride.” (whatever it’s called) I’m pretty happy with the result.

The PHP videos are really coming together and I’m starting to think that if I really got into this web development stuff, LAMP may be the most appealing […]
How to Roll Your Own Awesome Drag-and-Drop File Sharing Service. I’m planning to give this a try at work. One of the problems we sometimes run into is that moving large files around can be problematic. I’ve created a solution to share files but to drag and drop them in would make sharing slick.
