It’s interesting. It shows I still have a lot to learn. I don’t need to know how everything works exactly: I can treat it as a black box and still be productive. But here’s some things I need to work on:
- CSS 3 including media queries, responsive design
- Markdown: I know how to make links and lists, but that’s about it.
- Sass: A CSS compiler to make things DRY
How I updated the CSS
I’ve never been very good at CSS. CSS3 with Sass is almost completely foreign to me. Since responsive design is all the rage these days, I’ll resist my temptation to rip it all out and start from scratch, and gradually obtain an understanding of it over time. In the meantime, the Sass is structured in a way that lets you set customizations (colors, fonts) in a centralized place.
I’m just poking around at these values.

Things I still don’t like
Heroku has an almost 10 second spin-up time when your app has been inactive. I may move it elsewhere.
I don’t know what to do about images. If I move to a static host, I could just host them myself. I’ve tried 500px and honestly don’t care for it.
