Hey there, nice to finally meet you and welcome to my new, shiny blog.

I'm Max. I have long hair and a beard. I'm a front-end developer. I'm a hobby cook. I'm interested in technology and its impact on our lives. I love animals and I regulary brush my teeth.

Ultimately I do and am a lot of things and I will write about some of them here. And of course you're welcome to join me for the ride.

Until I publish a post on a topic other than myself you're welcome to subscribe to the rss feed.

I haven't gotten around to set up a commenting system, but I welcome any feedback and suggestions you have, just drop me a line via email.

I'm planning to write a post about the underlying technology of this blog soon, but for anyone that just can't contain their curiosity I'll give you a quick overview.

  • I'm using ghost as a blogging platform[1]. It's the brainchild of John O'Nolan, a former member of the Wordpress UI team. Ghost is still in the early stages of its conception, but it suits me fine and gave me the opportunity to play around with something other than Wordpress.
  • The theme I'm using is based on a design I came up a while back (not initially intended for ghost however) and coded up over the last 2 weekends. I will publish the source code for the theme on github soon for others to check out, but I still need to figure out some licensing issues, as I'm using 3rd party resources[2].
  • I'm using nginx as a web server, another new playground for me, as I've mostly worked with apache so far.
  • All this is running on a DigitalOcean droplet.

    This wraps up my first post, it was nice having you and I hope to see you again soon.
