What powers this website

March 9, 2017

This website is using October CMS which was built on top of the Laravel Framework. The reason I chose to use an existing CMS was to avoid having to do from scratch what has been done over and over, a simple straight forward content management system is what I need to convey my ideas to the world without having to reinvent the wheel. I decided to use October, first of all because it's built using Laravel, and second I did not want to use Wordpress the maintenance alone is a full time job, and third it's a great system that is developer friendly while still being great at the client side of things.

I found great themes and plugins readily available which made putting all this together so much easier and I encourage you to try it out.

After you dowload the zip file or clone the repo there's a handy Setup Wizard that will guide you through all of the setup, after that is done the rest is as easy.

I'd like to thank all the developers involved in creating it and hope I can contribute in the future.
