I used to always kinda dislike my homepage. The color scheme was awful the links weren’t very inclusive and the design made no sense. It took all the links (literally the entire contents of the page) and hid them off in the edges. It was back when I knew very little about modern web design. However, this post isn’t about how much better my new design is although I am super proud of it.
The point is that back then that’s how I knew the web. This is what I thought web was. They always say practice makes perfect. I feel like trying to make my homepage reflect the latest in what I know about web design. If I want to learn a concept I usually just write up a page to do it.
The other thing I kind of struggled with was the mobile layout. There’s this awful decision at Apple that iPhones will by default attempt to avoid mobile layouts. In order to get around this you have to use a series of meta tags to get your website looking and functioning correctly. The idea was honestly kind of dumb. Instead of boosting the number of websites redesigned to magically fit both iPhone and desktop without using responsive designs Apple instead just made everyone include meta tags in their sites. But hey, what am I going to do?
Frustrations aside, I think making a page like this is a good experience. Just to make things you’re learning how to do and show the world what you can make. I’m really proud of how this page turned out and feel free to check out the GitHub page on it or leave me a comment.
