Introducing... My New Site! ✨

Check out the site here! https://georgefrancis.dev/ πŸ‘€


Hey! How's it going? I've been a little quiet on DEV recently, but... I'm very happy to finally share why! πŸŽ‰

Well, as you might have noticed from the big ol' title/URL above, I have launched my very own site! As much as I love DEV πŸ’›, and think it's a fantastic place to publish, I have found myself wanting a singular home for all of my CodePens, articles, and other bits and pieces β€” so I decided to build one.

The site is built with Eleventy, hosted on Netlify, and is finished off with a healthy scoop of generative magic ✨ It features all of my past writing from DEV, and will be the best place to catch any new content from me going forward.

Honestly, I could chat forever about the design process, tech stack, etc, (and maybe I will someday) but for now, I'd just like to share the site with y'all! If you do have any specific questions, though, please do give me a shout. I'm always happy to chat.

Anyway, now that the site is launched, I am starting to rattle through my ever-growing Trello list of article ideas, so expect some fresh new creative coding/generative art content from me soon 🎨

In case you missed it up there ^ here's a link to the site.

Cheers!

George πŸ‘€

Really good looking website!

However, there seems to be something wrong with the email subscription feature:
Protonmail says that the email has failed it's domains authentication requirements. You might need to look into it.
