This is very brief overview of some of the technologies that I use and am familiar with:
The WordPress platform – originally written as a blogging platform, it has come to represent so much more. With huge market share, awesome user community and extensibility limited only by the imagination, why choose anything else?
- PHP – the PHP hypertext pre-processor
This is the language that WordPress (and so much more) is written in.
Markup and styling for websites
- LESS & SASS (powerful systems for working with CSS)
Brings many powerful, behind-the-scenes features to cascading style sheets.
The web server software that brings all of this together to make it work.
- Linux (currently Ubuntu)
Linux is an operating system that happens to be very good at running apache, MySQL & PHP – othewise known as LAMP
