About the website

This is an attempt to make a fully JavaScript-free, Accessibility friendly, and bloat-less website. I have revised it many times using various CSS frameworks before. But this time, I do it without the help of other front-end frameworks.
I am currently always rewriting this website, the UI might be wonky during this all the time.

Why?

Internet used to be a lovely place where people could share their ideas in the public domain.
It has now become a bloated mess made by developers who are running after the latest buzz-words for resume driven development.

We must not blame the web developers for this, today's technology makes it too easy to create bloated websites and too hard to make slim ones.

I am hoping to inspire young generations to take the right path by making this website, showing that you can still make a functioning, beautiful, ethical, and light-weight website without making it the size of doom.

The name is confusing, what does it mean?

I came up with the name Coding Otaku while searching for a name that's related to both programming and Anime. I like watching Anime just as much as I love tinkering with code.

To my surprise, No one bought codingotaku as a domain name, and I couldn't find anyone in social media going by that name.

Otaku is a Japanese term for people with consuming interests, In modern Japanese slang, the term otaku is mostly equivalent to geek or nerd, but it is now widely used as a term to refer to people who are obsessed with Anime and Japanese culture (It's not the proper use though).
