open sourcing code for a beginner

I am preparing to open source the code I have been writing for mepath.com .   The hardest work has been figuring out a logic that allow a machine to ‘understand’ context of the text that has been authored.  However, preparing the code for release is proving real hard too.  Completely new, you soon pick up on words like SVN or GIT but I never read you need a local client and a hosting service.  Well, the sites do say that but say it clearly in geek speak.  I contrast that wth the current ease of ftp – ing the files up to hosting account.  OK, no version control except human and backups done well, occationally but the opportunity to share is missing.   The opportunity to share is the goal, if others do not have a chance to see and read about the goals you want to achieve, then it is highly unlikely they will get involved.  I have been pointed to this book .  I am doing my best to learn from it.  Hopefully I will write soon about where the code is hosted, that is if you are interested in the lifestyle linking vision code we are figuring out.

Good Local Food

I have knocked up this site, local good food to put together some of the new coding skills I have acquired.  The site allows you to find local food in Grampain Region, in Scotland.

Improvements, the drop down list to select market, could do with one the allows to search all of Grampain.

The sql query is pretty primitive and will need improved.

All in all with a few more products added, this service is taking shape.
