THE #1 INTERNET DESTINATION FOR JUSTIN OUELLETTE

  1. Hot off the SSOPresses!

    Finished the first release of SSOPress, a JWT based single sign-on plugin for Wordpress. I did this mostly because I wanted something better and lighter weight than SAML 2.0 Single Sign-On or the other guy's single sign-on plugin. Also this should work fine in a multi server environment.

     

    Another reason to do it was to just make another plugin. I have begun patterning my larger plugins very similar to the way Rails is laid out. I don't know if it's good, bad, or otherwise, but it keeps a logical consistency to code organization in Wordpress where sometimes there is none. This is the second time I've implemented a plugin like this and I must say after the initial structural overhead (which I would like to create a boilerplate for) it's definitely easy to use, in my opinion.

  2. Time!

    Updating the portfolio with some of the stuff I've been doing profesionally over the past few years.

    I must admit it's a little embarassing, going back and reading some of the things that I've got on here. But, if anything, it shows progress.

  3. PHP!

    Wasted more time, finished the php version. Added more drop shadows, because drop shadows.

  4. The Things You Learn!

    It's amazing how much you can learn in a month or two. Went to edit a few things here and before you know it spent 2 hours cleaning up the django templates, html, and css. I don't know what I had against indentation when I first made this site but damn. Got rid of a lot of janky position:relative stuff, line break abuse, and more. All that work and the site looks the same! But hey I can slap the W3C valid tag on my page now! Site also functions way better on mobile browsers.

     

    I'm hoping to start blogging about a few of the projects I've been working on soon. Now to update the php version.

  5. Fixed formatting!

    Fixed formatting. Went with the standard ~960px fixed width. I think I'll work on a mobile site next.

  6. Formatting!

    Broke formatting on some browsers sometimes. Realized the site was too wide...quick changes not enough. Fixing it soon.

  7. Updates!

    Reformatted my resume in divs instead of tables, should format much better in more browsers.

    Tweaked some stylistic things here and there on the site.

    Also, www.questcraft.net is mostly done. Its fully functional, go take a look. 

  8. Soon!

    I added some things to the portfolio and fleshed out some of their entries. More detailed insight is on the way.

  9. First!

    Site's almost done. I think it looks pretty alright. I'm going to reformat my resume for better browser compatibility and I'll be adding more to the portfolio section and expanding on that some. In the mean time, are you hiring?
