A common task is to have a set of tasks; each with their declared dependencies. This setup exists in a variety of build tools such as make or rake

New blog. New format.

Hello World.

I’ve moved my blog from “Small Thoughts” blog.fzakaria.com, which was hosted on Wordpress & S3, one using Jekyll via Github Pages.

Why Github Pages and not S3 still? I wanted to see what all the fuss was about & it sounded simpler to set up the TLS certificates.

You may notice that the theme of this blog is very similar to that of Drew Devault’s; in fact, it is based on his published theme.

I admired on his blog his campaign to get others blogging that I revived my forgotten blog. I enjoyed the minimalism of his blog and embraced it. The site uses very minimal fancy Jekyll plugins, and you can find the source here.

I’m still a novice to Jekyll & blogging in general; feel empowered to reach out to teach me or discuss.
