I’m Pepijn de Vos, a web scripter/designer like person living in Holland.
The next step for me is to finally make my own website. I believe that for a client you should always use an open-source CMS with at least a medium size community, so they can ask for help and get updates there. But for my own website I want to make my own CMS. I don’t intend to share or publish it, because it would just be another tree in the dense CMS forest. However, if someone really wants to use it they can have it, if they promise to take care for themselves and don’t blame me or ask support.
Why re-invent the wheel? to make it rounder?
No, just to learn from it… And maybe a little ego is also involved 😉 But I want to know how something works before I start using it. I also don’t plan on using a framework, look at all those rails noobs, they only know how to do it, not why, and most of them don’t even know proper Ruby!
So my plan of action is: Learn Python, write a CMS, then learn a framework to make it easier to write a CMS, but then at least I know how python works and how a CMS works behind the scenes.
My website and CMS are also my end project for school. Not because I have to, but because I want to! For more information about my school visit aventurijn.org
I decided to keep this CMS project for later and make toverveer my end project.
