Bits of Simplicity

Ahoy world!

I've decided to build a new parsonal site and "Ahoy world" seemed like a fitting title for the first blog post. I'm not very good at blogging, but I figure it is great for personal & professional groth. I'm building this from "scratch" on my free time, so it might be a little slow going. The plan is to keep the design fairly minimal because I am a coder, and not a designer. A little bit about myself.

I'm a 25 year old developer named Bryan. I work for an amazing company called Noble Studios as a developer and work with some of the best talent in the industry. I get to work on a lot of cool stuff. In my free time I like to do the standard geek stuff. Video games, movies, anime. I own a vive and have been into VR games lately. I also like to do a lot of out door stuff like camping, hiking and sailing. I love to spend time in my hammock. I own two small sail boats and my dream is to sail around the world one day. I am also going to make a lot of nautical references. The primary reason for this blog is to write about tech stuff.

I want to try a few things and I have a few ideas for this site. I'v already setup some pretty sweet auto deployment using Gitlab CI. Staging & production environments. The server is pretty standard lamp stack. Ubuntu16, apache2, mysql5.7, php7.1. The backend of the site is built using the laravel framework. The frontend is built using HTML5, SCSS, Vue.js.

That's it for right now, but more to come.
