The Cobblers Children have Shoes

It's been a long time coming but I have finally launched a new version of this site. But as the maxim The cobblers children have no shoes goes so goes it for the web developers own site. I have however finally finished the new site. Well not quite, there are still a few tweaks to be made, but the site is ready.

It's been a long time coming but I have finally launched a new version of this site. But as the maxim The cobblers children have no shoes goes so goes it for the web developers own site. I have however finally finished the new site. Well not quite, there are still a few tweaks to be made, but the site is ready.

This is the third version of Caffeine Creations. It's built from the ground up in ExpressionEngine using Sass, Grunt, and Git. The new site is cleaner and easier to navigate than the old site. I chose to build it from the ground up with a fresh install of ExpressionEngine instead of using the previous version for a couple of reasons.

The first being that that there were a lot of legacy files and folders scattered across the server and I wasn't sure what was safe to delete. Starting over fresh means that I can remove everything. The second reason is that new techniques and approaches to coding have developed since the site first launched. Building new allowed me to use all of these including better naming conventions for fields and channels.

Take a look around the new digs and let me know what you think.
