Hi there and welcome to my new website. This is an introductory blog post. Let me take through how this website has developed both technologically and from a design perspective.
Website 0.1.0 - Keep It Stupid Simple
The initial version of this website was a little experiment. There was only one page with multiple draggable containers. It was a cool experiment but a there was to little content and on mobile, I had to disable interaction, otherwise the website would have been unusable on mobile devices. For the draggable containers if used a very simple implementation of drag and drop functionality. I didn’t use any library or framework.
Website 0.2.0 - Static Page Generation
Website 0.3.0 - Introducing Hugo
In the last 12 months, I got into a lot of topics like Arduino, 3D printing, and machine learning. In order to share my experiences and improve my writing and storytelling skills, I wanted to start a blog. The other day I sat down with a friend and colleague who also wants to start a blog and we took a look at Hugo, a blazingly fast static site generator written in Go. Suddenly things didn’t seem so complicated anymore. Eventually, I decided to give the blog another shot. In a few hours, I created this website using the beautiful Kube theme for Hugo. There’s still room for improvement but for now, I’m pretty happy with the website.
I’ll kick off the blog soon with a post about Gitter, a node-based sequencer for the web. Stay tuned.
