Since getting my first computer, a Commodore C-64 over 25 years ago, I have developed an interest in computing and learning to program in a wide range of high and low level languages including Java, C, C++, Perl, Python and PHP. In addition to programming, I am slowly, but surely becoming a better web developer and hope for this website to serve as an example of my growing knowledge and skills in responsive web development, accessibility and typography.
I want for this site to become a document of self-improvement and discovery.
So on this site I hope to write down my thoughts and opinions and hopefully document my travels and learning new and interesting things.
About this website
After first getting to grips with HotDog and later Netscape Composer back in the late 90s, I've always wanted to create my very own blog or website. After hundreds of iterations, redesigns and countless failures, I've finally settled on having a statically-generated site using Jekyll.
No more WordPress, no PHP, no databases, no bloated frameworks, just plain old HTML and CSS on ChrisElison.uk... for now.
Things are currently a little sparse, but I'm adding and improving this site slowly but surely.
