Picard

A server provisioning service for Ruby on Rails, Laravel and static based projects, with zero downtime deployments including your usual mix of common PHP CMS platforms like Craft CMS or Wordpress.

This project, for now, is on hold. Last year was difficult, and working with servers became a little bit too depressing on top of everything else. More to be announced when I can. Picard might become something else ✌️❤️ For now, perhaps check out Sublime Ads which is launching in February 2021.

Project posts

So I’ve deployed the Picard pre-registration page to the server yesterday. Tested it. Happy with it. Made a few tweaks today and deployed those. Now I just need to write the blog post to announce it.

I’ve slowly been working on Picard. Worked on the sign up process styling and also encryption of data.

Here is the UI after you put in your email address:

And once you verify:

Not too pretty, but it will do.

Blog post soon with announcement 🖖

I’m using TailwindCSS with Picard. It’s really great… although it takes a bit to get used to. I have written zero CSS at this stage though and I love it!

And here is the result so far!

For anyone interested what my next code challenge will be about, Picard… it’s aimed at developers running their own [to be revealed 😱]. It’s something I have a need for, for my own day to day, and nothing like it really exists (it does, but not the way I want… or anything that is affordable).

It's underway and I’m working on a “pre-register” page and will announce more soon once that's ready.

It’ll be another series of blogging and maybe also a podcast or a video series - still to decide.

Here is a sneak peek at the top left of the holding page:

I totally dig the image my sister came up with (after my clear and precise specification of “Picard"). THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH ❤️🖖

First commit for Picard.

Bought a domain name. It’s slowly getting serious.

To be revealed in the coming days.
