Some, including my dear brother Doug in Sacramento, are wondering why I haven’t released the source code yet to the advertised open-source career website I’ve been developing. Doug further wonders why it isn’t in SourceForge, a popular source code site for LAMP developers.
Truth is, I haven’t had anything worth releasing before now, and secondly, I have never used SourceForge and find it easier just to provide my stuff via a zip download. Since I’m the only programmer working on it now, I don’t see the point in getting into the complications of multiple code branches and the like.
Nevertheless, here is the zip file for any or all to check out. It’s a Visual Studio project that is a working web analytics component of the career site.
When I say it is working, this assumes that you have Umbraco installed and know your way around with it.
The code plugs into an IP location database that I purchased from IP2Location. If you don’t want to shell out the cash ($649 for the version I bought), you can get a free version of their data to play around with.
