The Web is an industry that thrives on the new… but what about building sites that last?

In 1996, I used my newly acquired HTML skills to build a fan site for my favourite author.

Twenty years later, the site – roalddahlfans.com – is still alive and kicking.

I’ll trace the development of the site over the years, which mirrors both my own career journey as a developer and the trajectory of the web as a whole.

I’ll also talk about the challenges I faced during my recent 6-month project to convert the whole site – nearly 1500 pages – to WordPress, dragging it into the 21st century at last.
