Things looking a bit different around here eh? Got a new splash of paint, some wallpaper here and there, and a couple updates.
|First off, let’s go with my old site…based
Still, it served me well enough. Now though,
it’s time to get serious, it’s time to get mean, it’s time to get scary, it’s time to get things updated.
So what’s changed?
- No need for a screenshot, take a look around, click a little.
- Dropped the fuschia, gave it an analogous color that’s a bit easier on the eyes and complimentary to more media.
- Updated Foundation by ZURB to their newest version (with the XY Grid!)
- Got rid of the AJAX-y…everything really…
- Security update
- So now my personal site is on its own VPS, locked down nice and tight
- Most things auto-update, cause ain’t nobody got time for that
- Back-ups are actually off-site now instead of just off-partition…(doh)
- HTTPS, PWA elements, HTTP2
- More of it! I’ll actually be active now!
Why bother updating my site? Well, there’s always a sneaking suspicion that 4 year old code could have some new vulnerabilities. And also because I hated the AJAX modals and adding content was too long of a process.
I’ll be updating this site a lot more in the future, I owe that to all of my 7 readers. Also because somehow, I’ve stumbled into a position where I’ll be generating content, demos, documentation, use cases, and putting on workshops. Cool!
I’ve worked for a couple of larger tech companies the last few years and the common issue I see with many technical organizations is the ‘data silo,’ or ‘tribal knowledge,’ or my personal favorite ‘cylinders of excellence.’ A lot of what I personally know is locked up in this noggin’ of mine and I need to be more diligent in my communication, documentation, and sharing skills. Who knows, maybe I can be one of those popular and cool blogger guys.
