Hello, World (again)

The constantly changing face of web technologies.

The more things change the more they remain the same

About 22 years ago, I began dabbling with HTML, but it wasn't because I liked designing web pages. In fact, the only reason I created many Angelfire & Geocities sites, was to promote the malicious programs I compiled in Visual Basic. These programs or "pr0gz", as they were less-commonly known as, were for the sole purpose of wreaking havoc on fellow AOL users.

I've matured (a little) over the years, and my love for web technologies have progressed along the way. Cascading Style Sheets were introduced, SASS & Grunt became a vital part of my workflow and content management systems like WordPress were integrated into my projects.

Today, with HTML & CSS/SASS being lone exceptions, I've moved on from those aforementioned technologies. Package managers, bundlers and static-site generators have taken its place. My workflow has gotten a bit more complex but it doesn't necessarily mean that it has gotten harder. With tools like Webpack and Gatsby, I am able to run a fully-functional, headless, stateless sites. I'm not sure what that all means... yet, but I'm excited to find out.

Today I will do what other's won't, so tomorrow I can accomplish what others can't.
