jekyll update

Hi there!

Welcome to the website, and this first post. So what is this about ?
I could write a lot of stuff about why I’ve started this blog, but for now let us focus on the technical why. To learn something new, I decided to rewrite my website in Jekyll and host it on Github. The result, is what you’re looking at.

Initially, I had a good read here, where the basics of setting you up are described. With an initial scaffold, I kept reading on the official Jekyll documentation and acquired a good foundation.

Basically, Jekyll is a static site generator, which renders a website based on templates. I’ve decided to use the Markdown engine for the the templates. A nice cheat sheet can be found here

To conclude it all, I pushed my site to Github and the result is what you’re looking at.
