What started out as a curiosity project soon became what I thought was a necessity. Rather than updating a paper resume and periodically throwing it at whoever may glance my way, building a website could instead serve as a dynamic resume where I can show my skills and creativity through a brand new medium.
I debated using pre-made templates for their ease of use and clean looks on different sized screens, but I had a desire to learn the basics of web development from the ground up. I quickly became hooked, spiking my interests in graphic design and aesthetics of digital art.
Version 5 - Getting Cozy with PHP
This version is clean on the inside and out. Previous versions of my site were not modular whatsoever. Redundant code, different standards, it was hard to maintain. For Version 5 I wanted to change that. I made extensive use of PHP, plugging in reusable code via server-side commands rather than re-typing it for every new page. I also simplified adding new pages by setting up text file parsing for an overall easier experience rather than unnecessarily getting too deep in the weeds of HTML.
Every once in a while I decide to scrap my current design and start from scratch again. Every time I learn something new, and I refine my tastes in web design. Check out previous versions of my site below.
NOTE: These versions are no longer maintained, so there may be some parts and features missing!
