If you’ve ever thought about creating a blog, or any type of website, this course is for you! We’ll learn about Jekyll, a popular static-site generator, and how to use it in conjunction with GitLab to create a free blog! You don’t need to be a programmer, but a little bit of knowledge of HTML and CSS will definitely help.
There are tons of ways to start a blog, but most of them aren’t free, or as fast as a Jekyll site hosted with GitLab! If you’re just starting out but aren’t sure if you can afford a blog, this is definitely the way to go.
