I decided that I would revamp the small presentation website I had on github pages time ago. It’s not that I disliked the old format, it was clean, ligthweight and easy to read. However there were some issues with responsive design on mobile browsers and no easy way to post content as if it were my personal blog.
Or I almost did, because in the end the deviation I made from a blank website was so little that it integrated just perfectly with the bare structure of an hugo site.
The result is what you are seeing, a two column design, a big one for content and another smaller for a sidebar containing contact info and other relevant links. At first I though about using FontAwesome to render the icons next to the info on the sidebar, but just loading the remote font increased the website size about a 10000%, from 2 to 200KBs. Unicode emojis are awesome as well.
To conclude this small presentation I must confess that I don’t even know what I’m going to post here, probably not all the content will be about IT, so it’s up to you the risk of subscribing my feed.
