My thoughts on web design and development
Barcamp Bangalore 8 was announced sometime recently. So I headed to the Barcamp Bangalore site to check out the details and was shocked.
The site’s homepage has been changed to something so tacky, and my first reaction was, wtf, it’s so fugly. Ugh.. C’mon guys, do something better than that..
Anyway, Barcamp Bangalore has been announced for March 7th & 8th.. I’m booking my calendar today ;)
I want to base a theme on Sandbox but unfortunately it is based on GPL which I think is too restrictive. I would rather have it in LGPL/MIT/AFL (Even MPL) instead which are more open and non-restrictive.
Sigh.. I’ll have to look for another theme though I doubt any will match the awesome Sandbox. I wish Scott would provide dual licensing.
I try to update the look of my blog fairly regularly (atleast more than my posting :D ). So with the new year, I decided that I needed a new theme, a new look for my blog AND a new name (the first change in my 4 years of blogging).
I’ve always thought that Red contrasts very well with both White and Black. So this time I was looking for a theme with atleast a splash of red. But what I found exceeded my expectations. Based on the wildly popular Hemingway theme, I now present Dawn. A stunning red and black theme by Milo and some beautiful and original artwork by Milo.
I have modified the theme to suit my needs and to show my Zooomr photos and also to fix a couple of bugs which Milo very patiently went through with me to correct. I am extremely grateful for her help.
And yes, I know that the new year was over a month ago but it was not long ago that I found the theme I really liked enough to switch. So here it is :)
