Our great sponsors
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • Zigi - The context switching struggle is real
  • Scout APM - Truly a developer’s best friend
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • Hugo

    The world’s fastest framework for building websites.

    You can try Pico CMS. But if you have the time, try Hugo. The latter has a learning curve, and the docs are frustratingly non-beginner friendly, but once you get the basics, there is no going back!

  • eleventy 🕚⚡️

    A simpler static site generator. An alternative to Jekyll. Transforms a directory of templates (of varying types) into HTML.

    11ty is dead simple, uses no JavaScript frameworks. It's basically a glorified copy/paste and include process which is often all you need.

  • Pico
