About Andrew

I (Andrew) am a software engineer by education and profession, but I also do a few other things in my spare time. That includes some combination of running, lifting, computer gaming, and cooking.

About this Site

This page was hand-written by me, Andrew Lalis, to be my personal website on the world-wide-web. It's got all the usual stuff that a personal site should have, like important links and contact details, plus a little series of articles I've written about my experiences with programming, lifting, gaming, or anything else of interest.

As you can see, I'm a fan of the "plain HTML is responsive" school of thought. This website is intentionally very simple in its structure, styling, and interactivity. This is because I believe that the vast majority of the internet's most popular websites sacrifice usability and accessibility to make a flashier product. By using a simpler design, we can help to make the internet more accessible to all, regardless of their physical ability or device's processing power.

Sitestat is included on most pages of this website, which is a simple, anonymous, open-source analytics tracker that works by opening a websocket connection and transmitting anonymized, limited data about your visit to this site. I use this just out of curiosity, to see if people actually visit and read the stuff I write here. No data is ever sent to third-parties. Contact me if you have any questions about it!
