Little introduction first: for a last few months I’ve been struggling with one side project that I co-own – very popular, but very shitty (from technological point of view) internet portal. It generates a lot of traffic and sometimes some money to pay the bills for my own linux server. There is a huge potential in this project, but surely not in current form. Currently it’s a very outdated, hard to maintain WordPress website that for some reason still didn’t break. I want to make it work properly, to do it I have to rewrite a whole thing. It’s taking ages, because:
- I chose all new technologies I want to learn to develop it
- I’ve got about 4 hours a week to code it
- I try to teach some agile approach another co-owner, so I want to keep all process details (unless it’s unnecessary in the team of two people)
What I want to describe here is the thing that I dealt with a few months ago, maybe someone can use it someday. Otherwise you will just read one of my stories and have some laugh hopefully. Let’s go.
