My New Adventure

I am a retired engineer living in the Netherlands. In the past couple of years, I created a few WP sites for charities. Recently, I became aware of JAMstack. After some reading I became quite interested. I think the concept has a great future. Thus I began learning HTML and CSS. I will continue with JS, Gatsby, React, GraphQL, GitHub and Netlify. That will keep me busy for a while, I’m sure.

A few years ago, I wrote a children’s ebook. It was well received and sold about 3000 copies. Then it faded into obscurity with the millions of other ebooks on Amazon.

I now have an idea to revive it. When I’ve learned enough coding, I plan on creating a multi-media website using JAMstack. This should result in a more interesting read for the kids, and I’m looking forward to this new adventure. I’ll post updates as time goes by.

Since becoming a member of Sitepoint, I’ve received great help with various technical issues and I want to thank everyone. I’m sure I’ll need more help in the future and perhaps I can help others.

I hope everyone has a great day. Thanks for reading.

If you want to post updates on your progress, I highly recommend you start a Wordpress (or similar) blog and do it that way. This is a forum to help people when they get stuck coding, not for progress reports.

Except he posted in the “Community” forum which is not for “people when they get stuck coding”.

Seems pretty “Community” to me.

I thought I was posting in the correct category:

Community

Tell us about your weekends, hobbies, travel and pets. Discuss computer hardware and software issues, industry news, careers and education … pretty much anything goes—except politics or religion, of course!

My bad! I failed to pay attention to the category. My apologies, Engine44.
