Introduction

01:48

Have you ever had a great idea for a content-based website or blog? Sure! We all have. But it's hard to find time to build a full-featured, good-looking website from the ground up. On the other hand, a full-featured CMS (content management system) is a little heavyweight and complex for a simple site or proof of concept. That's where GitHub Pages and Jekyll come in.

In this course, Derek Jensen will show you how easy it is to use GitHub Pages and Jekyll to create a fully customizable website and blog in no time. And don't think that you're stuck with the same template as everyone else. You can choose from one of a dozen built-in themes as well as nearly 500 open-source themes on GitHub. In this course, you'll learn how to create a great-looking GitHub Pages site quickly and easily.
