Masters of the (Computing) Universe

Hello everyone! I’ve been in silence for some months here, but for a good reason. In fact, on July 20th, I finally took my Master’s degree in computer science!! My thesis focused on SprintPress, a distributed publishing system entirely designed and developed by myself. I added a page describing the project on my portfolio page, thus if you’re curios you can take a look at it. Here’s a shot of the party cake, too:

Exams never end… almost never

I haven’t been able to update the site much in the last few weeks because I’ve been busy with my last exam at university. The good news is that I passed the exam with best marks, thus I completed the course for the master’s degree in computer science. Now the last step is the thesis: I will start to work on it very soon and plan to graduate in July.
Speaking about the site development progress, I added Services and Support sections, which obviously include new contents but also are the new home for the portfolio page and the legacy downloads page, respectively. I also added a stylesheet for printing and fixed the usual display bugs on IE, plus some other minor changes

Under the hood

After a week of posting new contents, this week I concentrated on improving and refining various aspects of the site, from code to contents and pages layout.
I also added addThis buttons to easily share pages, redesigned the “stay in touch” page (also adding social networks) and made many other small improvements. In the next week, the plan is to add new content again.

Day by day…

…development goes on here at Zik Software.

In the last few days, I made some improvements to the CSS, added RSS Feed and a page to subscribe ZikNews newsletter, and also added portfolio pages for PrefsOverload, AliasMultiplier, iLink and SprintDVD.

I plan to remove this development blog within a month. Maybe I’ll set up another blog or I will simply replace this page with a real home page.
