About this website

I am especially proud of this site as it's something that I put lots of effort into - especially making it mobile friendly. Keeping it small and simple was one of my main priorities.

I had previously set up the hosting for this website the hard way, using an EC2 instance based in Singapore πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬ which I manually configured with HTTPD, renewing the SSL certificate myself manually in order to enable HTTPS. Fun stuff! I leant a lot setting that up, however I have since changed the hosting solution to a more simple deployment with less maintainance required.

Future updates

At some point, I hope to get around to upgrading this site to use Hugo templating, likely when it becomes too much hassle to manually update the html myself. I'm reluctant to use something like wordpress as I don't want to abstract too much away.

Tech stuff:

This site is hosted on Cloudflare, which is a CDN (Content Delivery Network) that enables fast load times by caching this sites data in various locations around the world. All for free!

The site itself is written in pure HTML and CSS, and was designed to be lightweight, simple, and minimal. If you want to take a look at the raw HTML yourself, the site is publicly available on my github here.
