Resources to help you make a great personal website using GitHub Pages!
View gitpages_resourcez.md

Why have a personal website?

  • Make it really really simple for people to contact you
  • Make it really really simple for people to follow your work
  • Make it really really simple to host any files, document your research ideas or plans or DIY hacks, or write up blog posts about stuff that excites you
  • ... with maximum control over the content you share and how you it is presented, and without hiding it behind members-only platforms such as LinkedIn, and without being shackled by 2-page CVs!

Making Static Webpages with GitHub Pages+Jekyll/Hugo

  • GitHub is amazing, because you it lets you host a website on the domain .github.io for free! (Only one site per account)
