I'm building chrispalumbo.ca for multiple reasons. On one hand, it's a place where I am able to continuously practice web development skills and to try new ideas with regard to user interface (UI), and user experience (UX) design. On the other hand, it also gives me a platform to share the projects I've been working on; bringing everything together into one place. I can also share my favourite music, podcasts and Youtube videos in the media section, along with sharing random ideas or topics of interest in the blog section. The shop is good for having a central hub for anything I'm selling on different platforms (eBay, Grailed, etc.).
The website is built on the Django web framework, and for now uses basic HTML, CSS (SASS), JS and a little bit of JQuery to get the job done.
