My Web Portfolio

This website has a minimalist design, and a minimalist homemade CMS on the back end to post content. I could have used wordpress or something similar to handle authentication, formatting, storing, and posting of content. But wordpress is garbage. Have you ever looked at their code? My new favorite saying:

"If you have to serve up terrible code, it might as well be your own."

It's not much, but I like how it came together, and I feel like I finally figured out the key to responsive design, thanks to Bootstrap. The back end is just MySQL and PHP. The TinyMCE plugin to format content is great as well.

I am really looking forward to further developing the CMS and site itself: potentially build in twitter and other social media updates. Also, it needs to work in some magic with the IRC Chat/Site Console. These fun things will come.
