I built this site because I was burnt out on scrolling through never ending social media feeds and being bombarded with advertisements / irrelevant data.
I also wanted my friends to have an easy way to see the skate photos I had taken of them. These photos were taken between the years 2010 and 2020. I still have many to add.
This website is hosted on a Amazon EC2 instance that I setup with LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP). I coded it from scratch because I wanted something simple where I knew what every line of code did.
This is an ongoing project, so I'll likely be modifying and tweaking things every so often. If the site crashes, it was hopefully something I did.
If you manage to find a way to hack the site, I'd be interested to hear about how you did it and I'd gladly buy you (or someone in need) a burrito, a beer, a bahn mi, or a skateboard.
