    After all the "I" and "my" references, I am still looking for the page that says who Sumit is.

    Exactly my thought, I poured over the site to see what one of these profiles look like. Then I tried the chat box to ask, but that required an email.

    That would be great. Leave another comment when you have one up and running, I'd love to read it.

    I see everything on the site is in first person, but I can't find on the site where to read about said person. Any reason for this Sumit? I wish I could read about the "I" behind many of the statements.

  • Posted to What do you guys think of my portfolio?, May 20, 2019

    I'm not a fan of the use of photography. The photos don't seem to add any context to the type of work that you do. I don't see how they're connected to Designer, Engineer, Storywriter. I'd love to see some code immediately, or some design examples, screenshots, or more words as a storywriter.

    Would also prefer that it's not living at a Heroku subdomain.

    As a storywriter, I wanted to read a story, about you, not see photos that don't have context. I brushed over it initially because I don't like when I'm forced into video content, which means I need to pause my music or turn up my volume or put headphones in.

    The processor on my 2010 MBP just exploded. Had to close it before it fully loaded :(

    Sounds like a dream. Want to trade?

    I'm pretty obsessed with Hugo. Blazing fast.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "at scale", my largest Hugo build generates ~700 files and deploys live on Netlify in about 2 minutes.

    I find it to be way less convoluted than Gatsby. No plugins and great tools out of the box. Currently there is ONE single issue that still has me looking for other solutions, which is generating content from external data sources (

    I've also been using it for my latest sunrise project. And here's a film festival I run that uses Hugo.

    Along with Hugo I use IMGIX for image hosting and Algolia for search. Additionally, I'm running and hosting all of this for free, other than IMGIX which starts at $5/month.

    However, I did want to pose the question a few days ago, "If I don't use React, am I still a developer?" however Designernews is not the place for that conversation.
