Construct ChengReaction.com in 7 Days

Snapshot of ChengReaction.com home pageThe project is trying to build my personal site by Web Stardard design in 7 steps. ChengReaction.com is my second personal website. It has started since 2006 Super Bowl Sunday. The goal of this site could be beyond my current wet-behind-the-ears web design ability, but it would be boring if everything could be done in one day. It is an on-going learning process and the principal goal is to practice the web standard design essence: separation of structure, presentation, and behavior. Inspired by many great and top web designers and their books, I am trying to develop my own site by seven steps.

Seven steps are:

  • Day 0: Preparation
  • Day 1: Build Structure by XHTML
  • Day 2: Style Presentation by CSS
  • Day 3: Construct Behavior by JavaScript & DOM
  • Day 4: Pass Accessibility Section 508
  • Day 5: Integrate Information and Data
  • Day 6: Go Dynamic
  • Day 7: Site Optimization
