Welcome to The Art of Tech, LLC.

Welcome! This is the 2017 iteration of my web property. It is a small business example site built on WordPress, and has a fairly standard menu and ties to 4 social media hubs. Being a web developer, I find it somewhat difficult to keep up my own website. This shouldn’t come as a surprise. I know builders that do fabulous work on very beautiful homes, and they themselves live in modest ‘shacks’ comparatively speaking. We probably all know someone like this – too busy to do their own craft for themselves. But it really doesn’t present so well.

Tools

It is important to keep up with new technologies and have a showcase for your work, so I’ve ported to WordPress from a one-page hand-coded work that has sufficed for several years. I’ve built this site on the Circumference theme.

Some plugins used include:

  • WPForms
  • Google Maps CP
  • Loginizer Security
  • Smart Slider
  • Huge-IT Portfolio
  • Testimonials

Tests

  • HTML Validator
    • 1 error, 10 warnings – originating from plugins – I have contacted the authors.
  • GTMetrix
    • PageSpeed Score A (99%), YSlow Score A (96%).
  • Page Speed Insights
    • Desktop (87 of 100) 7 passed rules, Mobile (75 of 100) 8 passed rules. Could use improvement.
  • Pingdom
    • Performance grade 95.

Farewell to the old site
