Site Makeover - Let's go Tufte style!
Granted, this is a pretty late post for something that I have completed a month ago now, but let’s see what I can cover.
I will be honest and come out saying that the last design was basically not my design at all, but rather a stepping stone for myself to get familiar with the new landscape of web designing and web technologies. It was the standard Bootstrap-y layout/theme, one that has become the de facto standard design of the web, one that has recently become a design chided by those that are familiar as the style of the lazy, or the style of business sites.
Migrating from Twitter Bootstrap to Wing
My interest for optimizing webpage load times in my own projects were first found when I used to have wallpaper-sized images loading in every page of my old blog when I was much younger (yes the remains are still visible). I was not aware of the problem at first, attributing the problem to my slow internet connection, until when I invited others to my blog and they too noticed the problem. It was not an immediately visible problem unless if you stayed long enough on the page to notice that the header wallpaper was a timed event that changes every few seconds. And if I remember the structure correctly, it fetches images from an array of url to display the images, i.e. I have been sending infinite requests to fetch these images when you simply are staring at a single page, perhaps not even looking at the header. My inexperience and lack of knowledge had brought upon quite the disaster (laughs).
