This site is built with using Astro and TailwindCSS. Images are uploaded to S3 using Transmit and served using Imgix. The code is written using Visual Studio Code and pushed to a git repo on Github. From there the master branch is automatically built, deployed, served via Netlify. Fonts are Verlag and Sentinel from Hoefler & Co. All of this happens from a 2021 14-inch M1 MacBook Pro.
