What’s this site all about?
I’m Dorothea Baker, a computer science student and web designer.
I made this site while undertaking my web design minor, mainly in order to collate and organise the things I’d learnt that hadn’t been easy to discover from a simple google search.
My hope is that by sharing my discoveries and experiences with technology, I will be able to help others like me.
What will I find here?
Since its inception, I’ve expanded the content of this site to include information and resources relating to all kinds of software development, not just the web. However, as it was initially created with web development in mind, a lot of the resources you will find here are on topics such as web accessibility, HTML5 and CSS.
The blog is a mixture of handy programming references, tutorials, stories about things I’ve struggled with, and basically whatever I feel like writing about.
The inspiration page is also a regularly updated list of links, in this case to cool technology or web design I find inspiring.
What’s with the name?
During my web design minor, I found myself using the term “nightmare website” to refer to an assignment I was working on. Shortly afterwards I remembered
.website is a TLD, and…well, here we are.
This site is one way in which I’m trying to further my programming and design knowledge, and I want to learn as much as possible. If I’ve made a mistake somewhere, I’d love to know.
