Welcome to the new and improved LenPayne.ca. Because this is theoretically easier to maintain and update, I will hopefully be updating the site more often. Why is it easier to maintain? Most of that has to do with GitHub Pages and Jekyll. While I still love the MEAN stack, a static site generator is much easier to use.
Out With the Old
My previous site was based on the MEAN stack (Mongo, Express, Angular, and Node). It was a great learning experience and gave me an opportunity to practice things that have helped immensely in my professional career both in the classroom and outside of it.
However, it was still a database-backed dynamic site that wasn’t very dynamic.
