I have been designing web sites both on occasions professionally and privately since 2001. In that time span, I have witnessed the evolution from table based static designs to today's technology stacks.

For my private web site, I use static XHTML generated from Pandoc Markdown, spiced with CSS and a little JavaScript. There is purposely no back-end database in order to keep things simple. However, I do implement distributed version control with Mercurial Hg.

Letter and A4-formated PDF versions of my web pages are automatically typeset using PrinceXML.

For dynamic pages, I predominantly use client-side JavaScript. I am also experimenting with server-side Python using Bottle. I also have a keen interest in web2py.
