I am the author and maintainer of ModelsBuilder, an essential tool for the Umbraco CMS. If you use it regularly, or any of my other Open Source tools, you may want to consider my GitHub Sponsorship Program and help ensure that the tools you depend on are maintained in a sustainable way. Thanks!

About this site

This site was created in December, 2014 to give some visibility on my work, and to be an experimental and dog-fooding platform for web developments.

What is it running?

The site is powered by Umbraco—usually a few versions ahead of the public release, because I use it to experiment and dogfood my own work-in-progress. As of Oct. 3rd, 2019 it runs on top of the latest v8/dev branch (8.2.0-something) with a few in-progress & custom branches merged in.

It is hosted on a t3.medium Amazon AWS EC2 instance in the EU-West zone (Ireland), running Windows Server 2019 x64 and SqlServer 2017 Express.

The B-side of this site runs on the same server, but is powered by Beyumbe, a derivative of Umbraco for .NET Core. The C-side (!) of the site is also powered by Beyumbe, but runs as a Docker container on Amazon AWS Fargate. All three sites share the same database instance & content.
