I spent a decent portion of the evening getting my homepage to look decent. I used skel.js and one of the free templates to build a site that showcases the skills and software I've been working on for the past couple years.
It's worth noting that the templates (naturally) don't include any back end scripting - so of course the contact forms do nothing when clicked!
I threw together a very quick and dirty (yet effective) node script to handle the POST request and send the contents of the form to my email using a wonderful plugin called Nodemailer. I'll run through the code (and add it to my github) in the near future.
