Personal web site.
This is my personal web site, built using the Ruby on Rails framework. It utilizes a responsive layout, delivering full content on any device. I chose Ruby on Rails in order to easily develop a basic CMS.
Normally, I would build a personal website using a general-purpose content management tool such as Drupal or WordPress in order to avoid reinventing the wheel. In this case, however, I wanted to be able to keep my Rails (and Ruby in general) skills fresh without subjecting some poor mission-critical site to the risks of being my experimental sandbox.
This site runs on my Linux-based cloud server. The Rails app is served up by Unicorn, which sits behind a nginx web server. Nginx acts as a reverse proxy for Unicorn, while also directly serving static assets.
