What I’m working on
- I just launched Kooti that was designed by Studio Maria: a site for two fine people who build lovely tiny houses.
- I am designing and building a site for CAFYR, a project at the University of Antwerp.
- I am further optimising the (I dare to say greener) infrastructure I set up in 2020 to launch, host and support WordPress websites. I might write about it sometimes.
- Working on the story and the brand identity (wow, that sounds professional) of LittleBigThings
- We launched the English version of Isala, a citizen science project about the female microbiome. The project attracted more than 5000 women to participate, including subscription, mailing, a personal profile, … Soon, the results of the first round will be available. Exciting!
- Some time ago I launched a site called Global Warning, a side-project to raise awareness about the impact of the internet and related technologies on our environment. This site is the WordPress version of the original site and its pages load in about only 20-30kb to save energy. As always, I am working on blog posts.
What I wrote
Recently, I turned this site into a WordPress website to blog about the impact of the internet to climate change. So, meet the blog Global Warning.
In my talk at WordCamp Antwerp 2018, I tried to summarize the benefits of the Customizer for users as well as for designers and developers. To do this, I built a presentation in the Customizer.
In this post I am showing you how you can build a presentation using the presentation theme (WordPresent) I created.
