At the start of a new year and after the formation of the Comrades it seemed appropriate to refresh my portfolio ~ this site!
The idea behind the site was to use modern tools to create a site that was quick to build, easy to maintain and frictionless to deploy. To that end I chose simple npm scripts tooling, a Node.js Hapi backend and Dokku Docker-based deployment to a Digital Ocean VPS via a Codeship continuous integration setup.
I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. The code-base is small and easily comprehensible, it
only took me a few days to build and zero-downtime Docker-based deployments to a $5 server are just
git push away. Yay me!
The site is on GitHub so feel free to have a mooch around.
