A month into 2019, after changes, more changes, rewriting, and vascillation, I finally decided to publish my redesigned website.
I had been on my Bootstrap-based website for nearly 18 months, and it was time to refresh. I also looked at it as a great way for me to update my web design skills.
Although it's a fairly simple site - my objective was to build a content-focused site, geared towards writing and posting more regularly. I am a heavy Twitter user, but I want to start to write more in depth about some things I feel stongly about – specifically, startups, products, and tech trends.
So here it is.
TL; DR: Tech stack
- Lambda functions
- Vanilla JS (ES6 / Babel)
- System Fonts & FontFaceObserver
- Focus on Speed and Accessibility
- Deployed using Github and Netlify
- Easy to update and maintain
- Faster build times
- PWA & offline availability
I want to track my goal of publishing more often and eventually get to wrting a long-form post once a week. Onward and upward.
