This is my weblog and my little corner on the internet. See here for more information about me. I’ve build many big sites in my professional career, so I figured a small weblog should be possible. To be honest this is probably already incarnation number 4 (see old version) of the site. Hope you enjoy.

General Setup

The first few years I ran my personally crafted blogging system, which was great because I could experiment with it as a software developer. After my spare time became too scarce I moved it all over to a Wordpress blog. Maintaining that became too hard though: keeping up with all the security patches alone is too much work.

So the current iteration of the site you are looking at is completely statically generated. Here is the software I use:

Credits and Acknowledgments

Like most people that get started with Jekyll, I looked at the Github repositories out there and build off of one that comes closest to what I want. I did the same thing and want to acknowledge the work Bryan Matthew Warren has done. You will find his work on Github. In addition, in early 2014 I switched to the Balzac Jekyll theme developed by Cole Townsend.

Herjen Oldenbeuving did an initial review and gave me some valuable feedback.
