Working on several JSF projects and changes…
Between work, training and normal day-to-day duties, my free time has been fairly limited lately. Over this past weekend I was able to carve out a little time to resume progress on a few JSF projects I’ve got in the works. Here are some of the things you can expect to see in the coming weeks:
- Software updates to the main JSF site (this site). None of these changes will be revolutionary, but there will be some minor tweaks and improvements. I may also play around a bit with the look of the site, but it won’t be a complete revamp or anything.
- The “Cycling” section of JSF. You have probably noticed the new “Cycling” menu item (above), but right now the only thing that’s there are my power PRs. I want to really flesh out this section of JSF with articles and information on everything from training to maintenance and more.
- New mobile version of JSF. The JSF Forums are already covered in the mobile department, as they fully support the excellent Tapatalk app; the main JSF mobile site, however, needs improvement. The existing mobile version of JSF is not horrible, but it’s far from great. My goal is to bring the main site’s mobile experience to be more on par with the Forums.
- Focused effort to rejuvenate the JSF Forums. The new forums I recently introduced have seen a some action (and the new private forum exclusively for cycling locals has already sparked some excellent discussion), but much more needs to be done. I believe that if we put our heads together and brainstorm ideas, we can restore the JSF Forums to the thriving community it once was. This task will not be easy, nor will it happen overnight, but I think it’s worthy of an effort. I’ve heard from many of you, and so I know I’m not the only one who feels this way.
My goal is to spend at least 30 minutes each evening working on these projects (easier said than done, but that’s my goal). Stay tuned!
