I’m working on an Expression Engine project at the moment that involves a lot of document management. EE’s file manager is OK for a small number of files, but when you have a lot of large files, entry and member permission requirements and general ease of management to think about then it just doesn’t cut it. I also didn’t want to store the documents on the webserver.

We’re developing a new front-end for Tracks at the moment and have been researching various front end JS solutions. I’ve played around with both Backbone.js and Angular.js. Both are awesome (despite my JS noobness), but wasn’t convinced I needed this type of framework as of yet. Plus the learning curve (particularly Angular) is pretty step.

I saw this chart on Bloomberg today. Interesting to see how Apple’s share price has moved and tanked similar to Microsoft. Microsoft peaked just as the .com burst. #justsaying

Watch the first ten minutes on the Freshbooks story. I love the “slow build”.

Working on Tracks has been an amazing experience. I’ve learnt a lot. Especially from the businesses that have signed up and shared their feedback. I wake up in the morning thinking about it and go to bed thinking about it. It is hard to switch off at times.

Earlier this year I decided that I was going to work as much as full time on Tracks. My deadline to start was mid July and as I approach the 2 month mark I’ve got a lot to share. Especially on why.

Yesterday I set-up and installed the development environments for the new Tracks website on Expression Engine. I’ve struggled in the past getting version control working with EE, so thought I’d document some of the steps I went through. Although this is only a rough guide, it will give some beginners a point in the right direction.

I’ve been going round in circles trying to get PHPUnit installed on MAMP and have finally managed to get it installed, so wanted to share the links and resources I used.

Here’s a handful of links I’ve shared, bookmarked, emailed, tweeted and added to Read It Later this month.

This is an old video, but worth watching.

I attended Salesforce’s Social Enterprise Conference the other day with Kenton Ward of KentonFrank. I say conference; nightclub might have been a more accurate description - although they have to be applauded for crowd-sourcing the music (even though I was waiting on the thumping techno to kick in).

We’ve just deployed an update to Tracks that allows you to export deals to a CSV file. The CSV currently outputs the view that you have selected and includes:

In version 0.3.0 of Tracks we pushed a new version that was written in Codeigniter (a PHP framework). That was a challenge, but went really well. Since then we have released 0.3.1 (19th April) and 0.3.2 (28th April).

I was listing to the Stanford Thought Leader talk from Jeff Church on The Wave of Social Entrepreneurship and his closing slide I thought was worth sharing (although the whole talk is worth a listen).

I’ve written about social media consultants and agencies before. Very few get it right. So when a colleague passed Ron Shevlin‘s book that has a pop at social media to me with a few postit notes on pages I should read it made me smile.

It’s been a while since we started working on Tracks, but I’m pleased to say that it is open to the public! Tracks is an add-on for Highrise CRM that allows Highrise users to forecast and manage their deals pipeline with great ease than Highrise allows you to.
