Hello all you fellow code junkies!

I am a seasoned software developer / contractor / consultant (some call me an old goat) with over 30 years of experience under my belt. I literally have "been there, done that, got the t-shirt". You can find me on linkedin or visit my website.

As a contractor I have a variety of clients with differing requirements. Most of my work had evolved into building what we were calling “internet or web enabled applications”. I found myself writing a lot of the framework code over and over for each new project. I realized the need for a simple yet powerful framework for building Single Page Applications. I also wanted a common framework that could be used to build a website (web application) or be deployed to a mobile device or be installed as a desktop app.

Please follow along my journey here to build a simple yet powerful collection of libraries to achieve the proverbial "One Code Base - Deploy Anywhere" solution.

Note: I have recently updated the SmokeHouse/Applewood project on GitHub to the latest code version that  I am referencing in this blog. Please update your local repositories.

As I complete future modules I will add links here. Please check back often to see my new posts and follow my progress.

Note: This project has been complete and in use for over a year. I have decided to update the core project with newer libraries and document my journey here so others may benefit.
