The Alestic.com web site has been redesigned. The old design was going on 8 years old. The new design is:
Mobile friendly (‘cause Google says so)
Always secure (‘cause Google says so)
Fast (‘cause Google says so)
Ok, so I still have a little improvement remaining in the fast dimension, but at least the site is static now and served through a CDN.
Since fellow geeks care, here are the technologies currently employed:
S3: static page hosting
CloudFront: CDN, https termination
Disqus: Comments, but only on demand
GitHub: Repository for site source (markdown)
hugo: Static web site generator
purehugo: Base theme
Ubuntu Font Family: Clean, clear, contemporary
Simple, efficient, and gets the job done.
The old site is available at http://old.alestic.com for a while.
Questions, comments, and suggestions in the comments below.
Update 2016-11-12: Alestic.com is now running on a new CloudFormation stack, with components similar to the above, but entirely inside of AWS and automatically deployed when updates are made to the CodeCommit Git repository.
