Building a Blog with Hugo

Why

A couple of months ago I started a new job at Bitrise where I’m learning a lot of new things
currently and I'm also in the middle of a CKA exam preparation. I thought that
the notes I’m taking during my learning sessions or on my day-to-day tasks could be useful for anyone interested in
these topics.

Another reason is I would like to improve my writing skills in english.

How

Many years ago I had a site built with Jekyll, but now I thought I give Hugo a try as I'm really
enthusiastic about Go and read a lot of great things about it.

The longest part of the process was probably to find a good theme that I could easily customize. I ended up doing my
own, but it’s heavily inspired by Etch
and Hugo Bear Blog.

For CSS, I’ve picked Bootstrap without any particular reason other than that I’m (somewhat) familiar with it. I’m pretty
sure it’s overkill for a simple page like this… Other than messing around a little with the typography I didn’t do much.
I’ve also added fontawesome for a couple of icons.

Since the whole page is static I'm hosting it on Github Pages and it is built with Github Actions.

The source code is public at github.com/duplabe/duplabe.com.

It's a scientific fact.
