Code notes

I created this website in October 2022, when Quarto was (and still is) the cool, new tool for website building. I’ve left a few “code notes” at the bottom of various pages for anyone thinking of creating a website using Quarto wanting to see the underlying code. I drew heavily on Sam Csik’s Quarto resources, including “Creating your personal website using Quarto”, “Customizing Quarto Websites”, and “Adding a blog to your existing Quarto website”. The Github repo for this site is here. Happy Quarto-ing!
