Some past history on dssg web,
Initially dssg web started off as a wordpress blog.
Someone was originally assigned to developed it in Ruby but it never materialized.
To make things simple, I simply changed it to a static blog since the web server ($5 digital ocean) sponsored by Kaixin was also hosting 5 other web server.
We did discussed before on doing a learning platform https://open.edx.org/ or a forum https://www.discourse.org/ but so far none materialized due to cost ( SSL and Servers)
Any prototype or discussion is greatly welcomed!
