Computer Science Blogs (csblogs.com) was a project that worked to develop an open source blog aggregation system for computer scientists. Students, academics, and those working in industry could set up a profile and open up their blog to a wider audience.
In 2021, the hosted website and back-end was shut down because we were unable to commit to the time and cost to maintain.
The project is free and open source, anyone can contribute or follow progress on the GitHub organisation. We’ve made use of the Node JS runtime and the Express app framework.
I have been the largest contributor to the project. I have designed the user interface of the site, the branding, and written the pages presented to the user. I also helped find and implement tools for systems like subdomains and form validation.
The site is completely responsive; fitting to mobile, tablet, and desktop displays
This page shows a list of computer science bloggers who have their content shown on csblogs.com
Each blogger gets their own profile page about them, with links to their social networks, and a feed of just their blog posts
