Hello World

A beginning is a very delicate time. Know then, that the bakaitis.com blog has been relaunched on this 29th day of May in the year 2023.

A New Tech Stack

This is the latest incarnation of my website, Bakaitis.com.

In the past, the site has run on everything from apache to IIS to Node.

Today, the stack is being refreshed.

It's a Next/React static rendered site being hosted by Cloudflare.

In some ways, this is the easiest site to build-out in almost 30 years of having a website. Next and React are relatively easy to pick up if you already know JavaScript. Cloudflare is tricky, but no worse than any other self-hosting situation and Cloudflare comes with far more benefits.

Everything old becomes new again

While the stack is using new libraries and technologies, static rendering the site brings us back around to the beginnings: pre-rendered files that are cheaply and quickly served to a client, with minimal CPU needed at either end.

I have many thoughts about Next/React, Sanity and headless CMSs, TailwindCSS and CSS frameworks, and even Cloudflare. I mean, it's my job to know this stuff and understand how to use it.

It's been 20+ years since I last posted anything here as a 'blog' and I am going to start writing about this 'content engineering' topic.

For, now, though?

Why not start again, with this:

Hello world.
