The New Luktek (Or Yet Another Blog Engine)
Welcome to the new Luktek!
At the beginning of last year, when I started seriously considering life as an independent developer, I knew I'd need to get a proper site and blog established. I spent some minimal effort getting a Drupal install going with a custom theme, and blogged a few items I had on my list. Then, I actually quit my job and went independent... and haven't had any time for my own site, since!
Well, business is booming and it seems like I hear from a new potential client every week. The other day, I went to meet one of these new clients, and was admittedly embarrassed to see my website up on the projector in the boardroom. Well, that was it. I've dedicated time from every weekend, since then, to complete this new site.
Being a developer, I decided to build this site, from the ground up. In that way, I can play with some of the cool, newer technologies, and have ultimate control over the markup and functionality. So far, I've incorporated the following technologies:
- ASP.NET MVC 3
- Twitter Bootstrap, including responsive CSS
- KnockoutJS (coming soon)
- OAuth 2.0 login via Facebook and Google
- Twitter API
- Cicada Principle background
