New look, New Technologies

For first time visitors to the site, welcome – I hope you find the blog useful. For returning visitor, well, as you may have noticed (or not) – the look and feel of the site has changed – somewhat. That is coz I have just implemented a template that incorporates Twitter’s bootstrap (thus it is responsive – you welcome mobile users) and a Metro look and feel (maybe not all the way – but somewhat).

I find it refreshing to make changes every so often and a template change at least once every 24 months is not so bad – and I made this current change mainly so that I could incorporate a responsive template to the system with the help of Bootstrap.

So, what is Bootstrap and why should you (as a web developer or designer) not ignore it?

Well, according to Wikipedia, it is “a free collection of tools for creating websites and web applications. It contains HTML and CSS-based design templates for typography, forms, buttons, charts, navigation and other interface components, as well as optional JavaScript extensions.” In other words, it is what was got when twitter geeks decided to get their act together and organize and document the tools that they were using.

So, I gather that if I organize and document all the tools I use in the course of my development, maybe – just maybe I could also become the most popular project on GitHub…not so?

Please pass your comments on the new template – if you have any. Please note that I am in the precess of modifying it so suggestions of modifications are also quite welcome.
