Personal website v2.0

Welcome to my refreshed site. My goal was to have a personal website that is better suited for writing blog posts to highlight my work. I slightly updated the visual design too.

Choosing a technology

I had a shortlist of requirements for building the new site:

  • super fast performance
  • easy to learn, build, and maintain
  • have blog features
  • cheap (or free) hosting

Jekyll was what I ended up going with. It checked all the boxes and has been around a while. It was an easy decision. I tried a few other newer tools such as Gatsby, a “blazing fast static site generator for React”, but it wasn’t noticeably better than Jekyll.

Jekyll is very popular and you just cant beat free hosting through GitHub Pages.

Would you like to work together?
