A few months ago an idea came to me for a new domain name I should pick up. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the domain yet, or if I would even use it at all, but I wanted to jump on it because it was available. It struck me as a good name, and I was a bit surprised that it was still available.

Zoom forward to a couple of weeks ago, when a different idea for a new website came to mind. Oftentimes I post detailed entries here specifically about the weather or very weather-tech related articles when I run into issues while developing Seasonality. The thing is, I’m not sure my typical reader is interested in these postings, and occasionally I will refrain from posting about weather-related issues simply because I don’t think it would fit well in the *Coder blog.

But wait a second…I bought that domain awhile back, maybe that would work. Actually, it ended up being perfect for my new site idea. So I started working on it off and on. I’ve been happily using WordPress to host this blog for quite some time, so I decided to use the same platform for the new site. I set things up, customized a theme, and wrote a posting or two. I think now it is finally ready to be revealed, and I wanted to share. The domain is weatherdeveloper.com, and the site is called “A Weather Developer’s Journey.” With the full-time development of Seasonality 2 coming soon here, I thought it would be a perfect time to start a site like this, as I’ll be spending a lot of time trying to overcome issues with data hosting, manipulation, and weather visualization.

If you’re at all interested in checking it out, please do so (Website, RSS Feed). I’ll most likely post links from here to the first few articles on the new site, just to get the ball rolling. The first article talks about finding and putting to use 90 meter elevation data.
