My vision

Every product we interact with, should be a valuable addition to our lives.

About me

Hi there, welcome. My name is Peter Goes, and I am an Amsterdam (The Netherlands) based web developer. I get exited about all things created with web technologies. Whether it is a clean user interface, a clever Node.JS back-end implementation or geeking out on JavaScipt on Raspberry Pi’s, chances are that I want to wrap my head around it.

At the moment I work as a Front-End Developer at De Correspondent in Amsterdam. I get to play with the latest web technologies, which I think is super exciting!

I use this place to experiment with (new) web technologies and like to see it as my personal home on the web. Take a look around, and tell me what you think about it!

About the site

The site is completely static. Quite recently I refactored it from a completely custom build gulp pipeline over to Eleventy.
Having spent some time with Eleventy, I came to really like it! Because my old stack was using Markdown as content anyway, the transition was pretty straight forward. Because of the switch, I can make overview pages with much more ease now. And as a result, the blogposts have their own RSS feed now!

As the site progress, I’ll write more about how it is set up. Like adding a demo viewer so you can see all components that are used to build the site. To start things off, here is the typography test page. Ow, and the font you are looking at? That is iA Writer Duo for the body type and Fira Code for the code examples.
