What is Aemi ?
Aemi.dev is a personal blog / website focused on development and design. It is actually powered by WordPress and running on eponymous Aemi WordPress Theme. I understand that Aemi does not mean much but, in fact Aemi is a shorthand for “Aesthetic Minimalism”. It may sound a bit presumptuous so I would explain it better. Aemi.dev is not aesthetic neither minimalist. Aemi is the goal to reach in each of my project. I try to provide pragmatic products that are based on what is truly necessary for each of them.
The WordPress Theme
Keeping this in mind, the first product stamped Aemi is the Aemi WordPress theme available on WordPress Official Repository and on GitHub. I hope you like Aemi’s design and I suggest you to leave a comment on project pages to let me know how I can improve Aemi.
Also, as far as Aemi Theme is a WordPress Theme, Aemi’s design itself can be reused. It relies on Standard.css (maybe it already exists but I didn’t really looked for if it does), a CSS boilerplate available in Aemi Theme’s code and I used my own gist “Fonts.css”, that provides Inter font and some additional monospaced font (JetBrains Mono, Fira Code, Hack), as a clean and really good (my opinion) basis to start a website design.
The (Hu)Man Behind Aemi
I don’t usually talk much about myself on social networks neither on Internet. But for once, I would let you know who I am.
My name is Guillaume COQUARD. I’m currently studying Computer Networks & Systems in the second year of my Master’s Degree in University of Paris Saclay in Evry-Courcouronnes, France. I learnt a lot about Petri Nets and Graphs there. I plan to deepen my skills in Cybersecurity, Cryptography and Artificial Intelligence for the next three years by completing an engineer degree in one of these fields.
I also take to heart to help and support students in their life at the university. Therefore I am president of the student association of Computer Sciences Department of University of Evry and I am also a student representative of this department.
I’m passionate about design, interface design and photography and I like to explore fulfilling new paths.
That’s it. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
