Hello World! Welcome to my brand spanking new website. For some time now, I wanted to write blogs about awesome Azure/tech related stuff, and here we are! A proper introduction of myself will follow later. Let’s talk tech! How did this website came to life?
There are a million different ways of creating and hosting a website. The choice we make is often influenced by experience. I created a lot of websites in the past based on free HTML templates, backed by a custom PHP framework and a good ‘ol MySQL database. However, this time I wanted to do things differently.
This website wil host blogs. Blogs are simple static content, so a database is not needed. Whilst searching for ways to host a static website, I came across Github Pages. A free and simple way to host a static website.

After a lot of struggling with getting ruby/bundler/jekyll to work, blogs now can easily be added by writing it in a markdown file and pushing it to a repository :) Github (Actions) will take care of the CI/CD stuff and before you know it, the blog is live!
