I jumped on the static site generator bandwagon a little less than a year ago. As with most things, I spent quite a bit of time researching a load of options
to find the "best" one. I really liked Hugo
and its speed, and have used it to run the new site I created ever since. I hit a lot of snags when I was initially setting up the site, and I felt like that might keep others from using Hugo.
I'd also wanted to create a course on Udemy, so I created a course on Hugo. As a sort of beta test, it's free with a discount link until the end of the month.Here's the link to sign up for the free course
(It will be valid until 31 Jan 2015 at the stroke of midnight)
Feedback or questions would be much appreciated. It's easy to forget things that make sense now, but didn't when I first started using it.
And even if you don't choose Hugo but you start using another static site generator, I think you'll like the workflow. I really enjoy writing my content in Markdown and being able to git push to publish.
