Introduction and this Blogsite

2017-03-06

Hello, and welcome to my blog!

As mentioned in the introduction on the main website, this blogsite is used to detail my projects and served as an interesting Rails 5 project.

This website began with me following this video tutorial on youtube.

And eventually branched off into it's own project. For anyone wishing to create their own single-page website and blog, I highly recommend it.

This blogsite uses active admin, bootstrap and a few other gems mentioned in the video. In order to go beyond this tutorial and learn more by myself, I learned how to use ckeditor and PostgreSQL ( And spent many evenings doing so trimming the bugs :) ).

At this time of writing, this blogsite is hosted on heroku under the URL "https://blooming-harbor-29656.herokuapp.com/". It will soon be hosted on Digital Ocean and (hopefully) be found under the domain "https://marclaffan.com". This blog will detail my crazy adventures through software development and likely a few things about myself that I think will help with peoples soft skills.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do B)
