So, welcome to the FINAL interation of my site, at least for awhile. To echo a previous blog post, Bootstrap is a great option for an out-of-the-box responsive site, and since I've been very busy with work I decided to use it for my own personal site. It's light, flexible, and looks cool! I also will get to play around with some of the built-in components over time.
Recently moved my site(s) over to A Small Orange since it was such a good deal. Check 'em out if you need to save some dough.
Finished making my colleague and fellow softball player Matt Sinclair's WordPress-based publishing site mobile-friendly. There are some great titles to download (most free for Kindle) so please browse his collection of original novels and anthologies at EBP!
I'm also now working at The New York Society Library as Assistant Systems Librarian, where I'm administrating their Drupal-based website and doing systems work.
Finally finished my new site, which incorporates design elements I learned at Noble Desktop. Please check out the projects section, which links to two other sites I designed. FYI most of the blog entries are from my old site, I just copied them over.
So, at the very start of my web development career, I’m working quite a bit with WordPress. My site pinballbars.com uses a child theme of GeneratePress. Pinball Bars mostly consists of bars I’ve visited in NYC that have pinball games, which I love to play (but, to be honest, am not a pro at!).
Additionally, I’m helping maintain two other WP sites: Elephant’s Bookshelf Press LLC, and Aventura Construction Corp. For the former, I want to migrate them to a new, more mobile friendly theme (again, using a child), and for the latter, I’m still learning how it is set up since it’s a custom-built site. But I’m helping them with their photo galleries, and fixing up small issues as they arise.
Been toying around with Bootstrap for a new project. Bootstrap is a powerful mobile-first front-end web framework that’s relatively easy to implement.
Very impressed with the classes and instructors at Noble Desktop. Ones I’ve had so far have been very knowledgeable and great communicators. Victoria Torres taught the web dev classes (HTML, CSS, basic design) and Ethan Cornell is a wiz with Photoshop! I’m about halfway through the design certificate, after which I will be designing my own project and looking for other projects to start.
Hi, welcome to my site! I’m a librarian in NYC making the transition into web design. Right now I’m attending the Noble Desktop web design certificate program. I will post updates on a regular basis to document my progress.
