At first Hello World! was a place where I put all my current stuff needed for work. After awhile I turned it into a “real” blog and it stayed that way. It was 2009 and I was just promoted to senior developer. Ever since I was trying to make Hello World! world class blog and partially I did. Few articles I wrote about Windows Azure got Microsoft attention and, long story short, you can find my two series of articles published on MSDN. Unfortunately you can read it only in Polish. If you want to try, here are the links - PHP na Windows Azure and PHP i Windows.
For next few years I was trying to find a way to run this blog. It had its moments it had some downsides but eventually blog survived. The main impulse to reanimate Hello World! was a major life change I made. I moved to Melbourne, Australia, dropped my job as team leader and started from scratch.
And now interesting stuff - tech stack I used. Initially new version of Hello World! was built with Wagtail, Django based CMS. Recently I have replaced Wagtail with Nikola, static site generator. I realised that I don't need full CMS to run a blog. Wagtail is great and I'm using it on daily basis but it was too much for a simple blog.
Most of the graphic files you see here came from free stocks. Currently I use Pexels and StockSnap. To build front-end assets I don't use anything fancy like Gulp or Grunt. I'm using plain ol' npm scripts (well, yarn scripts to be specific).
Last but not least - Twitter. You will find there all tech stuff I find interesting. I treat it like a micro blog.
And now, please, enjoy your next favourite tech blog.
