As I'm writing this, I'm still in the process of coding this page. I intend this blog to provide regular updates not only while the campaign runs but also while I attend code camp.
Right now, I'm doing okay, but I'm struggling. Most of what I've learned to get this site up and running came from the Mayday.US team - while this site is nowhere near that complex, most of the base technologies are there.
Hosting? I'm on Github Pages - just like Mayday.
Payment processing? Stripe. Just like Mayday.
Site design? Well, I've been using Jekyll. Jekyll's a -- I don't know what you'd call it. HTML preprocessor? Site builder? Half the times I know what I'm talking about but I don't know the words that tell you what I'm talking about. The other half I may know the words, but have no idea what they mean. Because of that, it's difficult for me to teach myself.
There's a whole lot out there for a person who is able to teach themselves - a process known as "Google & Hack." The problem with the Google and Hack method is that if you don't know what you're looking for is called, you can't google it.
For all I know, this is a longshot. But at least it's worth a try.
