New Programming Blog Site17 Nov 2014
My programming blog officially moves from Artima to this site, as of now.
I’ve been poking at this problem for at least two years. It almost seems like I was unconsciously waiting for the right system to sort itself out, and it has: Jekyll on Github pages (with MarkdownPad for editing) has won over my heart and mind. I’m pretty darn happy about this — I had gotten to the point where it was just too much trouble to blog on Artima, and so a lot of ideas have gone un-captured.
That said, thank you Bill Venners for creating and maintaining Artima for all this time. It filled an important need, and I got a lot from it. (The Artima posts will remain available for the foreseeable future).
In a later post I give all the nitty-gritty details, enough even to clone my work and create your own blog just like you see here.
Whew! That’s a big one that’s been hanging around my to-do list for a long time. Feels good.
