Return of the blog!

August 22, 2011

With the good intent to bring this blog to new life, I migrated after 7 years Wordpress blogging to a new blogging platform:

Jekyll logo

Jekyll, the blogging engine that makes you blog like a hacker.

Jekyll is a blog-aware, static site generator. That means, that I don’t need any database engine and no more PHP for dynamic pages. I can simply generate this site on my local machine and then host it on Amazons S3 storage. A static solution may first seem old fashioned, but if you think about it you will see that Javascript heavy pages that shift the processing from server to the client browser are the future.

Let’s see how this works out.
