Design and Development of Inspired-Evolution.com

Designing and developing my personal portfolio and blog website, Inspired-Evolution.com, has been and will continue to be a labor of love
(This website is always evolving - hence the name).

The technologies used on this site are:

Site structure/layout

I used Bootstrap framework for the responsive HTML/CSS/JS based grid layout. I also included a great deal of custom HTML5, CSS3 and jQuery.

I used SASS for easier CSS management and I used Font Awesome liberally through out this site for icons.

Performance

I ensured all images on my site were as small as possible using Tiny PNG for image compression. I also minimized my javascript and CSS files and made sure I reduced the number of http request to bring in assets (CSS/JS).

In order to make page loading faster, I enabled Gzip compression which compresses files for faster network transfer.

This site is responsive and mobile friendly and I tested the mobile speed via Google Page Speed Insights.

Back-End/Templating

With the back-end coding I used PHP to assist with page templates using includes and also the rotating background on refresh feature and submission of my web form.

Blogging

With the blog portion of my website I utilize the Wordpress Content Management System (CMS).

Accessibility

Web site accessibility is very important to me so I read a lot of information on websites such as Webaim and Section 508. I verified every page on my site for section 508 accessibility compliance using the WAVE web accessibility evaluation tool .

I also validated the HTML5 for the site as well as the Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).

SEO

I made sure I created my webpages using semantic HTML and also added key words into headings (h1, h2 , h3 etc.). I linked across the pages in my site as much as possible. Additionally, I submitted the XML site map of this site to Google and Bing.

Web Site Hosting

For my hosting of Inspired-Evolution.com I use Media Temple. Media Temple is very reliable and respond to any issues or answer any questions very quickly.
