New blog - who dis?


This is my new blog and portfolio site built with Gatsby! If you haven't heard of Gatsby, I've really enjoyed it. The buzz is certainly warranted. Allow me to elaborate.

First off, Gatsby is an open-source frontend framework with a focus on building fast websites and webapps. It is based on React and is very good at playing nice with different CMS's and APIs. At its heart though, Gatsby is a static site generator. Think of a static site as the types of small web pages that you might've built when first learning about web development (the type that just use plain old HTML, CSS, and javascript).

Gatsby allows you to utilize modern tools while compiling everything down to the basic building blocks of the web.
