I’ve been using Wordpress for over 10 years. It’s become and amazing platform for blogging thanks to an amazingly vibrant community and the numerous innovations from automattic. I still use it for more media rich blogging but for code and tech, it’s hard to beat http://pages.github.com. Combining that with jekyll and you get a fantastically simple platform for creating technical content with features like:

  • Versioning of content using git
  • Blog content written in markdown
  • Simple, vim friendly content structure
  • Fantastic code syntax highlighting
def print_hi(name)
  puts "Hi, #{name}"
# This highlighting rocks!

I look forward to many more posts to come on this new platform!
