Clipper Reloaded: Phase 3 Begins

A quick note to say that we have been successful in getting funded for the 3rd phase of development as part of the Jisc Research Data Spring competition. This is a great achievement and we are looking forwards to getting on with the the next phase of work. Our proposals to the judges are here although our planned times will certainly change due to the delay in the decision making process (it was due before the end of 2015).

We will be considering our technical development options and are likely to change our technical architecture in this phase away from Javascript, PHP and SQL and adopt Angular 2, MongoDB, Noode JS. This is quite a big change – hence the ‘Reloaded’ tag –  and not without its risks but we think the benefits are very strong. We shall be quiet for the next few weeks as we dig into these issues.
