TPDP Episode #27: Static Website Generation with Hugo

TwitterFacebookRedditLinkedInHacker News

I am pleased to announce that the latest episode of the Polyglot Developer Podcast has been published and is now available on all of the major podcast networks!

As many of you know, The Polyglot Developer is a static website composed of strictly HTML, JavaScript and CSS. There is no backend technology, no database, nothing dynamic, and as a result it is fast, cheap to operate, and easy to maintain.

This episode, Static Website Generation with Hugo, will shed some light into static site generation and how it differs and is advantageous over the popular alternatives such as WordPress and Drupal.

There are many static site generators available, but the focus of this episode is on Hugo, a popular generator because of its speed and functionality. To talk about Hugo, the core maintainer of the open source project, Bjørn Erik Pedersen, is on the show.

Like previously mentioned, this episode can be found on all of the major podcast networks. This includes iTunes, Pocket Casts, and many others. However, if you’d like to listen to the episode here, you can find it below.

If are interested in blogging, tech or not, I strongly encourage you to check out Hugo. It is very easy to use and as an end result it is cheap to host and fast for your users. Take it from someone who was formally using WordPress, but decided to make the jump.

If you have questions for myself or Bjørn Erik, you can reach out to me on Twitter at @nraboy or Bjørn Erik at @bepsays on Twitter.
