chadgolden.com

My personal website for trying new technologies and pitching my skills. Originally a static website, I created chadgolden.com using CodeIgniter in 2013. In an attempt to experiment in Laravel I rewrote the site using Laravel 5.7. Finally, I wrote this latest iteration of chadgolden.com in .NET Core 2.2 on top of Piranha CMS Core for the CMS functionality and elegance and performance that .NET Core affords.
