Deep Design’s Newly Redesigned Website is finally up!

There’s this popular Maltese saying which says: “L-iskarpan biz-zarbun imqatta'” – the shoemaker is wearing torn shoes – and we were like the shoemaker, doing websites for other companies, and leaving Deep Design’s website in the to do list. It’s been a long time coming but finally, Deep Design’s newly redesigned website is up and running! It has a bold and colourful new look. We opted for a responsive website design to make sure it will display correctly on all the user’s devices. Check out this post on Deep Design’s blog!

Say Hello to Deep Design

Today I finally launched a blog for Deep Design. I’ve been meaning to upload this new blog and make a post for almost two weeks now, but stayed back from posting it. I was trying to make sure the first post on a new blog is informative and gives a good introduction and this stopped me from posting it. I was always making excuses. Currently I am in France for work, and will stay for the entire week, and was going to postpone it again, but instead this morning I decided to just go for it.

What is Deep Design? Deep Design is a new startup under which my team and I will be launching all our new projects and apps. Visit Deep Design’s new blog (http://www.deep.com.mt/blog) for a good introduction and let us know what you think. There are several projects in the pipeline so stay tuned!

Week Review.. over 300,000 all time views

This week my blog managed to reach a target that I previously set in my mind, 300,000 all time views. Most popular websites manage to reach that amount in only one day. But I’m happy with the result.

Moving Forward

These last few months, I’ve been trying to add a post, if not daily, at least 4 times a week, and am almost managing it, to help more developers with the solutions to the daily problems I find, and other utilities that help users.

During the next weeks I will be shifting this blog to  personal domain name, www.ciappara.com, to make it more customizable. I’ve been meaning to do this for years, but now it’s time to do it 🙂

Blogging Solutions

I have been happy using wordpress for these last 4 and a half years, but now I would like to start using a .Net Blogging solution. This would help make customisations more easily, as I’m a C# guy :), and can add anything I want. I’ve been searching for a few solutions, and I found BlogEngine.Net and Graffiti, or else develop continue developing a blogging engine using Project Nine. I will be testing and reviewing them and let you know what I’m choosing.

But more info on my new blog later. Till then continue watching this blog ciappara.wordpress.com! Thanks for all your reading! 🙂
