Blog 2.0

After a long time of inactivity, I’ve decided to give my blog a facelift. Among the changes you’ll notice is the spanking new domain name. I’ll still ramble about open-source software though I’ll be rambling about other subjects as well. A special thanks goes to Anthony, a former colleague of mine who recommended technologies I should consider as part of the blog revamp. One of them being the hosting provider: the blog is no longer on Blogger but it’s now hosted on GitHub Pages, giving me more control over content.

Speaking of content, if you’re wondering how I’m publishing it, I’m using Hugo for this purpose. The static site generator has excellent docs and gives you step-by-step instructions on how to set it up for different hosting providers like GitHub Pages and BitBucket. A bonus to using Hugo is that it has a tool to convert posts from Blogger to Markdown which then can be imported into Hugo. So if you’re after my old posts, you’ll find them on the new blog.

Of course, I’ll keep using AddThis so readers can share content. Besides this, readers can comment on posts from Disqus which is apparently all the rage now.

Between work and enjoying the sizzling summer in Malta, I hope to find time to share thoughts on code and design so subscribe to the new blog’s RSS feed to stay tuned on the latest content.
