Site Launch

So this is my new website. It’s a static site built using Jekyll, a static site builder written in Ruby, and based on Hyde, a Jekyll theme by @mdo, the author of bootstrap.

There are a lot of static site generators to chose from, but of the ones that are widely used and being actively developed, Jekyll seems to be the most popular as well as one of the oldest, and thus has a huge ecosystem, including lots of ready-to-use themes. Although my needs here are very modest, I plan to use the same site generator for some other little projects and to build some modern website design skills, so it will be good to have plenty of examples from professional designers to study and play around with.
