New and better scienceprog

Hello folks. Thank you for visiting my blog. It has pretty long history and undergone several major changes. Its been a process of learning and experimenting. I know, sometimes it seemed pretty slow – only few posts in a month or no activity. There is no fun to keep that way. This is why this year I decided to reborn with new ideas and energy. You have already noticed, that design of blog has changed. I hope it looks better and clean.

I dropped the old and ugly logo – it seemed somewhat cold and huge. Needed something smaller and live, that would be easy to remember. Hope you like it.

The major reason of changing blog theme was need for handheld and mobile devices support. We cannot ignore them anymore. Probably many of you use smart devices like tablets, and smart phones with varying resolutions. Old site design simply didn’t detect those and tried to display whole page where you had to zoom in order to read something. Now template automatically adjusts to screen resolution so you could scroll and read immediately. This is how it looks on my Samsung GT-S5830i:

Design is nothing compared to content. It seems that I was too much focused on other things, and so blogging became irregular and somewhat not very engaging. With new look be sure to see more activity, more posts with more opinion, projects, tutorials, personal experience.

Another thing that is even more important – community. With new ideas and personal experience I we can build growing community where we could learn together, share thoughts together and enjoy results.

  1. My only advice is to keep in mind to not aim too ambitiously in too many directions at once.

    Other than that, awesome! I’m not sure I like the new logo, it does seem somewhat polished though – but the design is pretty enough and doesn’t get in the way of the content. 🙂 Cheers!

  2. Thanks Erik for response. Logo is one thing that still looks not very right for me either. Still trying things out. I’m thinking something more minimalistic could be more fit.
