The Rebirth of This Site

Wednesday, 4 December 2019

For the last couple of days, I was working on a new version of this site. I felt like it deserved a nice and refreshing looking and I needed to pay more attention to it.

Its story goes all the way back to 2009 when the first draft was conceived, right after having my first classes in Computer Science. I was fresh in the college and eager to learn a new language right away other than C and C++. Well, sooner or later that day would come. I ended up picking PHP to serve as the main language of the website, even if it was a static website only.

Other versions came along the way since the first one to this current one. It went through 3 versions with PHP as the core language but with different designs; then it moved to pug.js (previously Jade) with more static files, AngularJS and lastly it was hosted on Medium.

After roaming for this road, I decided to give it a minimalist design with focus more on content and make it fully static with Jekyll. It was also inspired on Daring Fireball by John Gruber, which I’ve been a reader for quite some years.
