Technical information about this site

This website uses mainly open source software.  The webserver consists of NGINX as a reverse proxy which serves static and cached pages, on the front of Apache and PHP for dynamic pages. These run on a Linux-based Virtual Private Server at MediaTemple, a web host I’d happily recommend. Static assets such as media, stylesheets and javascript are served from Amazon Cloudfront content delivery network, to increase speed for overseas visitors and reduce the server load.

The content management and blogging system is WordPress.  The design is based on the WordPress Twenty Fifteen theme. I did the adaptation myself. The main plugins I use on the site are WP Super Cache,  Tribulant Newsletters, and Xavin’s List Subpages. My online presentations (such as this presentation on complexity) are developed and published using Articulate Presenter.
