Release Day

Introducing the new and improved Official Website of Janny Wurts!

Janny is the creator of the Wars of Light and Shadow series as well as the co-author of the Empire Trilogy with Raymond E. Feist. Her website had lingered in the aughts, as previous website administrators naturally moved on to other things in life. Having corresponded with her over the past 13 years as I built the Wiki for her main book series and in search of another quarantine project, I volunteered to help her modernize the site.

The key requirements upfront: simplify navigation (sites that have been around for over 20 years, like my own, tend to build up a lot of content warrens), make it work on phones, and give equal emphasis to Janny's writing and artwork. I kept the content, burned down the old code, and started over from the ashes.

My key takeaway from the work, which started in late June, is that web development is so much easier today than it was even 5 years ago. Where once I would have spent time thinking up workarounds for every single web browser, I can now find fully-working examples of tailorable code snippets all over the Internet to do things using web standards that (mostly) work everywhere!
