Alan Hardman

I’m a web developer & designer with several years of freelance and professional experience. I’m interested in all kinds of technology, but my major focus is on developing web & mobile applications. I also have skills in other related fields like database administration and UI design. I’m a strong believer in minimalism, as so many users have trouble understanding and using complex applications. Also it just looks better.

I go by Alanaktion on just about everything, including GitHub, Twitter, Keybase, Unsplash, SoundCloud, and Steam. I’m also on Stack Overflow, Google Play, and several other developer communities under my real name.

This blog is built on Jekyll, hosted on Arch Linux, and using a minimal custom theme based on Bootstrap 4. I don’t update here very often, but it primarily focuses on web development and other technology-related things. It also includes most of the posts from all of the previous blogs I’ve maintained over the years.

If for some reason you want it, here’s my PGP public key. The CLI I used to host on my main page is at /cli now.
