New website

It’s live! and no, it’s not done, it’s not perfect but it’s live, and as any website it is a living thing that will continue to evolve and change in time.

Technology

The first thing to stand out in this website is that it works using github pages, powered by Jekyll, a flat file website generator. You probably have heard about flat file cms, and static website generators and their advantages (simple, fast and easy to deploy).

Checklist for the new website:

  • A simple way to publish content (a blog!), and Jekyll Now offers just that.
  • Decoupled theming system that allows me to change the website design without affecting the content
  • Simple hosting, since I don’t need much space, database or dynamic content I didn’t want to deal with web hosting services and the monthly cost.

Whats next

I hope to publish blog posts about UX design, side projects and any resources I found could be useful for the rest of the community.

So if you are reading this, let me know your thoughts.
