The github_deploy command included with Nikola is nice to have, but you need to have a working build environment to update your blog.
Wouldn't it be much more convenient if we could just write or update a post and see the changes automagically appear on our website? Using continuous integration, we can do just that.
Alright, so this new shiny blog is running nicely on our development machine, but we'd like to share it with the rest of the world. For now, let's go with Github Pages.
It's been about 6 months since I've made my career change from teacher to software developer. Time to start a blog to document the things I've learned on and off the job.
To keep it simple, I've picked Nikola to set up this blog. It's a static site generator, ready to roll in a couple of minutes.
