Welcome to the first post of this shiny and new blog.
My name is Austin East, and that is me wandering in the photo above. I'm very excited to finally have this site up and viewable! I hope to make this an effective chronicle of my professional works and thoughts. I'm also going to use this space to start writing programming tutorials as well.
About the site
I built this site on top of the awesome Grav CMS, and plan to release this whole thing as a free theme for it. If you're fed up with all the needless complexities of other platforms (cough cough Wordpress cough cough), I highly recommend checking out Grav. I'll probably have some more to write about this in the future.
I'm currently developing on the web for a living, but my true passion is in game development. In fact, I'm currently going to the University of Central Florida in pursuit of that dream. That being said, I love all kinds of programming and am always learning something new, in whatever language or framework I currently find interesting.
Looking to the future
As I write new posts or tutorials, I'd love to hear some input. Definitely send me an email if you have anything to say or request. I'm really excited for the future and what it holds for me, you, and the rest of the world.
Until next time!
