Build a Blog with Jekyll and GitHub PagesGuil Hernandez
Learn how to create websites with Jekyll, one of the most widely used static site generators. With Jekyll you can build a blog, a portfolio, or any website, without having to depend on a database or content management system. You will also learn how to host your Jekyll site, for free, on GitHub pages.

And since you’re a good programmer, you don’t want to change every function in the same way over and over again. That’s not DRY or a good use of your time! Well, when that happens, you just might need a decorator.
