Some reflections on the site so far

November 15th, 2009

I believe the site's took taken shape (thank you Julia) and is fully working. If anyone finds any usability bugs please do get in touch, though.

Things I have learnt in the last couple of weeks:

  • Some basic PHP
  • Some basic Javascript
  • How nice (so far) Dreamhost are, even if they do keep trying to sell me a private server.
  • The loveliness and forgiving nature of HTML 5
  • How the best designs in Photoshop are the accidental ones
  • That I actually find it easier to hand code than use Dreamweaver and go through its menus.
  • The importance of typography
  • The importance of accessibility
  • How WordPress works and how to customise templates.

About HTML. There are no comments (yet!).
