The Start of Something New

The Journey of Interactive Web Design

HTML. CSS. JavaScript. Three powerful components in the world of web design and development. The power of the three combined can go a long way and earn you more than you could ever imagine in your lifetime. With the knowledge of these three, you can create beautiful blog posts, web pages, or websites in an instant. With a few lines of code, the Internet is in your hand and ready to be unleashed into the world.

With websites like Team Tree House and CodeAcademy, you can learn how to code in under 24 hours and have the knowledge of the power it takes to build a complete website. Whether you use a framework like WordPress, Joomla, or Drupal, or frameworks that allow for more hands-on coding, such as Twitter Bootstrap, Skeleton, or Foundation, the unlimited power of creative web design is all limited to your imagination. Websites like Codepen and JS Fiddle will allow you to test and create an unlimited amount of code and proudly display it to the world.

We have created MyPost with the knowledge of all these websites and frameworks in mind. The main framework for the development of MyPost is Skeleton, a very minimal grid framework designed by Dave Gamache, who works for Twitter as a designer and front-end developer. In our effort to make MyPost as easy and user-friendly as possible, we were looking for the most minimalist grid framework in existence and after working with several, we felt that Skeleton was the most fitting, as it left alone many of the default CSS styles. The inspiration for the simplicity of MyPost came directly from the powers of the Skeleton grid framework, allowing for us to realize the potential we could develop.

If there is anything that troubles a web designer and a web developer when it comes to frameworks, themes, and plugins: its limitations. With limitations comes the inability to truly do what you want with your code. With MyPost, we have given this ability to do what you want. While we offer a default template that every post uses, these limitations can be broken with CSS. All the rules can be bent and broken on MyPost. You are only limited to the extend of your knowledge. Extending the content and containers to full width will give you access to a full screen. Whether you know how to do this or not, we are here to help you learn how to break the rules of MyPost by providing all the resources you will need to get started!

We can't wait to see what you come up with for MyPost and we hope you find it as useful and as fun as we do! Get started today!
