Hello, welcome to my new website - Authentic Pixels. Through Authentic Pixels, I plan to deliver high quality free & premium web resources including Bootstrap HTML templates, startup landing pages, UI kits, mockups & themes for Ghost & Wordpress.
My goal is to release at least 2 resources every week. This is also an attempt to improve my design/development skills by regularly releasing new content.
Currently I have 2 products for sale - Elemental - Multipurpose Landing Page Template and Atlas Admin - Responsive Dashboard Template and I am working on another Bootstrap template for startups & small businesses called 'StartKit'.
My name is Bharani Muthukumaraswamy and I am a designer, full-stack developer & amateur boxing enthusiast from Pondicherry, India.
I have successfully bootstrapped my first venture - Resumonk. Resumonk is an online resume (CV) builder that is currently being used by thousands of people across the globe.
In my previous roles, I have worked with a wide array of startups on different platforms ranging from hybrid mobile applications to rich client web applications.
About This Website
Although it would have been better to use a static site generator like Jekyll or Octopress, I decided to build everything from scratch using Elixir and use this as an opportunity to learn a new programming language and web framework.
It has been a wonderful learning experience. Coming from Ruby on Rails, there are a lot of things that are done differently in Elixir/Phoenix and this project has helped me wrap my head around the "Elixir way" of doing things.
If you are looking to pick up a new framework/language, I would highly recommend that you check out Elixir & Phoenix. It is fast, performant and provides a very nice developer experience.
I will be releasing the source code for this website on Github shortly. You can follow me here for updates. I also plan to write another blog post documenting my experience developing and deploying a Phoenix application.
