A Brief History of this Web Software

The collection of software on this site has been in development for almost twenty years. In the early years of the 21st century, the apps grew out of web sites Mr. Jones maintained for reviewing for the New York State Regents Examinations in French, Spanish, and German. Mr. Jones closed down that business in 2007 when what he was selling was appearing for free on the web. The apps then were developed at his own site for use with his students and starting in 2012 JonesHistory.net was opened up for others to use. In 2016, an even better version of the software was installed at this web site. The apps are coded in a combination of languages: PERL forms the backbone, while JavaScript and PHP control much of the front end user experience. Mr. Jones maintains the code on this web site himself, although his co-workers (for whom the service is free) assist with their suggestions.

Mr. Jones continues as a full-time public school teacher and so your patience is appreciated if he cannot respond to your email right away. Kindly permit 48 hours for reply. The power of this site is that all the apps on it have answered the question posed by a teacher: "Wouldn't it be great if we could get an app that...?" That is a great practice to continue, so please feel free to share ideas for new apps.
