Report: Eonics Hack Night — Static Site Generation

By Dmitry Kann 2 min read This post in Russian 0478

The yesterday’s event has been a success in my opinion!

I’ve had a great time, and the turn-out was even larger than expected.

Presentation

The event has been held at the headquarters of Eonics in the Hague.

The topic evoked quite a bit of interest among the audience, which I do understand.

As soon as I discovered Hugo myself, I couldn’t help a wish to reimplement yktoo.com in a static form a short while after.

Workshop

After a short break for a meal (lekker, as usual) the participants went on with a practical assignment.

They were requested to build a portfolio website for a fictitious press agency named Acme Press, which was selling photographs to news agencies and bloggers. The portfolio items were to be properly classified by tags and authors.

This was, by the way, my first presentation in Dutch, which I survived turned out to be comprehensible enough according to the feedback that I got.
